METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The New York Giants know better than to underestimate a Steve Spagnuolo defense, even one that currently ranks at the bottom of the NFL.
When the Saints' defensive coordinator was in New York, the Giants not only won a Super Bowl, but they saw how Spagnuolo could adapt when things went wrong and improve his unit over time.
Giants guard Kevin Boothe says the thing he remembers about Spagnuolo is how well he adjusts. So even though the Saints rank 32nd in yards allowed and 28th in points allowed, Boothe says the Giants expect to see a defense playing well above such rankings when they host the Saints on Sunday.
New Orleans' recent performances back Boothe up. The Saints held NFC-leader Atlanta its second-lowest yardage total last week.
