Giants | Defenses adjusting to passing game

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks said the team's current three-game offensive slump is something he knew would happen. Last season, WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks each eclipsed 1,000 yards and QB Eli Manning shattered records. But eventually, Nicks said, defenses would adjust, and that's what's happening now.

The result has been increasingly physical play from opposing corners (Cruz's frustration), and a few different defensive looks. Nicks admitted Sunday that the Giants receivers were caught on their heels a few times, taken aback by the alignments of the Pittsburgh's secondary.
