Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Rookie edge defender Azeez Ojulari had a loud game on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers with 2.5 sacks, 3 tackles for loss and 4 quarterback hits.
Ojulari, though, spoke softly and modestly when he met with media via Zoom on Monday.
“I’ll say every week I’m just trying to get better,”Ojulari said. “As I continue to play these games, I’m getting used to it and adjusting to the game speed and everything. It’s just kind of slowing down for me and getting better by the week.”
After getting sacks in each of his first three NFL games, Ojulari had been quiet in recent weeks. He did not have a single pressure the past two weeks.
“I think you’re trying to get to the quarterback every week. You try to do whatever you’ve got to do to get there within the scheme. Whatever it is, you’ve just got to play your best, give it your all when you’re out there,” Ojulari said. “That’s what I’m just continuing to try to do every single time I step on the field. Just play my role and do whatever I’ve got to do to help the team succeed.”
Ojulari now leads the Giants with 5.5 sacks, tying the rookie record set by B.J. Hill in 2018.
