Rolle On WFAN: 'The Sky's The Limit' For Giants' Defense

NEW YORK (WFAN) -- The Giants won their second consecutive game on Sunday, beating the Redskins with relative ease.

Big Blue is now 5-9 and will miss the playoffs for the third straight season.

Some would say that there's not much to play for in the final weeks of the season. But don't tell that to Antrel Rolle, who joined WFAN co-host Evan Roberts in his weekly spot on Tuesday. The Giants' defensive leader made it clear that these final two games are important, regardless of the standings.

"My personal goals have always been team goals," Rolle told Roberts. "We try to go out there and be the best that we can possibly be on each and every occasion, as a team. And for the last two weeks I think we've been doing that. Defensively, in the first half (against Washington) we didn't play our best defense and we still held them to 10 points.

"That just shows that the sky's the limit for us."

It's too little, too late for the G-Men this season. But the three-time Pro Bowler is impressed with what he's seen over the past two weeks and is excited about what it means for 2015. He's also determined to finish the season strong.

"We're finally starting to get the chemistry together," Rolle said. "We're finally starting to understand how each other plays, with all the injuries and having guys rotate in and out on a weekly basis ... That's the name of the game, is to finish. It doesn't matter how you start, it's how you finish ... Right now all we can do at this point is just fight."

New York will take on the Rams at Edward Jones Dome on Sunday before concluding its season against the Eagles at MetLife Stadium.
