You’ve simply got to love the way NY Giants defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence is playing this campaign. The man known as ‘Sexy Dexy’ has been an animal going to war in the trenches and that was the case in the Week 5 upset win over the Green Bay Packers in London. Lawrence was a man on a mission.

In that 27-22 victory for the G-Men, Lawrence posted five tackles, one sack and was just a nightmare to deal with for the Green Bay hosses. Aaron Rodgers had a front-row seat to the Sexy Dexy show and he was left quite impressed. Rodgers said Lawrence needs to be getting way more attention for his strong play.

NY Giants DL Dexter Lawrence is having a breakout year for the G-Men

Rodgers is on the money with his take on Lawrence. On the year thus far, Lawrence, who checks in at 6-foot-4, 342 pounds, has three sacks, 21 tackles and one forced fumble to his name. With pass-rushers Kayvon Thibodeaux, Azeez Ojulari and Leonard Williams all missing time in 2022, Lawrence has manned the battles in the trenches for NY.

His play this campaign has been a ton of fun to see, as Lawrence is not only a big-time talent, but he’s got an amazing personality. The man is sure to make you laugh with some epic quotes, and the swagger he displays on the gridiron is always backed up. Straight up, he needs to be getting more love on a national level – he’s been spectacular.

In addition to Lawrence, Rodgers also had to give props to defensive coordinator Wink Martindale and the G-Men defense as a whole. In the second half of Sunday’s game, Green Bay’s offense didn’t score a single point. This came after the Packers owned a 20-10 lead at halftime. Martindale made some solid adjustments. Rodgers and Co. had no answer for them.

Lawrence played a big role in Sunday’s win and he’s going to be a key member of this team the rest of the way. The Giants will have another tough matchup in Week 6 against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, but something tells us Lawrence has some more head-turning plays coming for folks to enjoy.
