For Justin Pugh, the unpleasantness of the Giants’ 27-0 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday continued long after he left Lincoln Financial Field.
“It’s like a nightmare,” Pugh said today. “When I was sleeping I wasn’t sure if I was having a nightmare or if that really just happened.”

ONCE EAGLES GREEN, JUSTIN PUGH’S BLOOD IS NOW PURE BLUE

Al Thompson
Giants second-year tackle Justin Pugh on his childhood friends who remain Eagles fans to the core.“They try to live up to he stereotype of Philly fans, they're all bad ass in the stands.” Pugh laughed. “They think 'cause a guy threw a battery out of the stands 20 years ago it make them tough too. It is is the mantra of the Philadelphia attitude. I was the same way...luckily I was saved by the New York Giants.”

Giants offensive tackle Justin Pugh grew up in Bucks PA, played football at Council Rock-South High School and attended Eagles games at Veterans Stadium and later at Lincoln Financial Field.

That is all behind him now.

GIANTS WILL KNOW HOW GOOD THEY ARE AFTER PHILLY AND DALLAS

Michael Eisen
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul will certainly test the Eagles makeshift offensive line.

The Giants will learn in the next two weeks exactly where they stand in what appears to be a much-improved NFC East. Riding a three-game winning streak and owning a 3-2 record, the Giants will travel to Philadelphia and then Dallas before their bye. Both the Eagles and Cowboys are 4-1.
