Video: JPP honors father in win
Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul’s father, who is blind, attended his first NFL game on Sunday. If only he could see the smile on his son’s face after JPP capped off a remarkable second season with a Super Bowl XLVI championship.
“It means a lot,” Pierre-Paul, who finished the regular season with 16.5 sacks and had two tackles and two pass deflections in the Giants‘ 21-17 victory over the Patriots, told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols. “My dad can’t see, but I was playing for him [Sunday night], and my dream came true.”
