Kayvon Thibodeaux now has 11 sacks on the season

In case you missed it on Sunday, star pass-rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux recorded a half-sack in the 10-7 win over the Pats. With that, Thibodeaux is now up to 11 sacks on the campaign, which is no question silencing all of his haters. The pass-rush for the Giants has been far too inconsistent in recent years, but the Oregon product is getting the job done in the best way possible.

It wasn't too long ago that people were labeling Thibodeaux a first-round bust. He finished with only four sacks in 2022, his rookie campaign, falling way short of his goal for his debut season. However, Thibodeaux has been providing opposing linemen with headaches this year, which Wink Martindale is loving.

Speaking of Martindale, a report surfaced over the weekend saying there's tension between him and Daboll. Thibodeaux was asked about that in the clip above and he said he doesn't pay attention to what outsiders have to say. Thibodeaux is more worried about this team continuing to improve and posting wins. That's exactly what happened in Week 12 vs. New England.
