Giants 24, Falcons 2: Post-Game Reactions

New, comments

Here are some of the post-game reactions following the New York Giants 24-2 victory over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday in an NFC Wild-Card Playoff game.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin:

"I think today we played outstanding defense and that set the tone for everything else that happened in the game. It was wonderful to see it and it has happened over the last two or three weeks of the season. If we can continue to play defense like that, we can make ourselves heard in this tournament."

Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan:

"We never got into a rhythm. We never moved the ball consistently. We had some opportunities. We fell short on two fourth downs. We just came up short. In a playoff game against a very good football team, you have to make those plays and we didn't make them."

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs:

"I haven't won a playoff game here since I've been in the league. We played here twice, we played the Eagles and lost, and we played Carolina one year and got shut out. So this means a lot to play a playoff game here at home and win."

Giants defensive end Justin Tuck on the team's defensive play:

"Probably our best effort so far this year. I think the last three weeks - do or die games for us - we really came out and put things together, but it still feels like we can play better and we probably will have to next week going up to Green Bay."
