The Giants need to be very scared of Jason Pierre-Paul. JPP is currently the best pass-rusher for the Buccaneers, and he is playing with an added fire against his former team.

Pierre Paul leads the Buccaneers in sacks with 5.5, which is good enough to tie for 10th in the league in this category. With a revenge game on his mind, JPP could easily add a few more sacks to his total and move up the rankings.
The Giants have struggled with their offensive line all season, and Pierre-Paul should have a favorable matchup that will leave him on an island with a rookie or a similarly-skilled player. This matchup paired with JPP’s fire could spell disaster for the Giants.
As Bucs fans have already probably seen, Pierre-Paul is very excited to play his old team finally. The two parties did not part ways in a clean manner, and JPP made some comments this past week that should have the Giants second-guessing their decision to move on from the dominant pass-rusher.
If Jason Pierre-Paul gets anything less than a double-team on most downs, the smart money is on him making Daniel Jones extremely uncomfortable. The Giants will have to develop a plan for Jason Pierre-Paul; otherwise, they will have to kiss any opportunity of offensive success goodbye.
