EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants' confidence continues to swell and Jason Pierre-Paul likes his chances of pulling off an upset in Lambeau next Sunday.

When asked how optimistic he is about the Giants beating the Green Bay Packers, the defensive end replied, "We're going to be all right."

"We gonna win ... we gonna win," Pierre-Paul later added.

Pierre-Paul is just expressing the confidence he and the Giants have after winning three consecutive must-win games with their 24-2 rout over Atlanta on Sunday in the Giants' wild-card game at MetLife Stadium.

"We know what's at stake, and we know it's one and done," Pierre-Paul said. "We aren't going to let that happen. We are going to go out there and give all our effort and we are going to walk away with a win."

The Giants lost to the Packers on Dec. 4 at home, 38-35, after Aaron Rodgers led Green Bay to a last-second, game-winning field goal. But the Giants have won four of five games since and the defense is playing much better than it did when it gave up 449 yards of total offense to Green Bay.

Initially, Pierre-Paul said he was "80-percent" sure of the Giants' chances on Sunday. He then changed it to "100-percent."

"We should (win)," Pierre-Paul said.

"We're sure," he added when asked about how sure. "I'll see you guys later."
