EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Football has not been any fun for Jason Pierre-Paul this season.

Pierre-Paul has gone from All-Pro to all frowns. The sacks aren't coming: Pierre-Paul has just 1 1/2 in four games in 2012 after getting 16 1/2 a year ago and terrorizing opposing passers down the stretch and into the post-season as the Giants won the Super Bowl.

He says he looks in the mirror and asks himself why he isn't "running around like a big kid," but promises he will be doing that on Sunday against Cleveland.

Fellow defensive end Justin Tuck agrees with Pierre-Paul's assessment, but can't pinpoint the reason things haven't been as enjoyable. He doesn't think it's the high expectations accompanying the Giants' defensive line because "expectations have always been high around here."
