With Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews Jr.’s telling Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports that the Giant didn’t beat them in the playoffs, but they rather beat themselves, defensive end Justin Tuck decided to take some time to respond to his comments on Wednesday.
“Thank you for giving us the game. I appreciate it,” said Tuck in response to Matthews’ comments.
Tuck had a little more to share.
“When they fumbled the ball, I think it was us that stripped it out. We sacked them. I think it was us who beat their O-linemen and got to [Aaron] Rodgers. So I don’t think they just Ole’d everything and gave us the game. I think they were trying to win,” said Tuck
While the Packers didn’t make the plays they needed to, the Giants left plays on the field as well. In the end the team that capitalizes off the opposing team’s mistakes, will win.
