Giants | Have used some 3-4 looks in practice
The New York Giants usually use a strict 4-3 defensive alignment, but they have used some 3-4 formations or hybrid looks that ask their defensive ends to stand up and either play outside linebacker or at least look as though they might. The idea is to confuse the opposing offense and possibly to be in better position to react to run-heavy, read-option offenses like the Washington Redskins have, and perhaps the Philadelphia Eagles will use. DE Mathias Kiwanuka played linebacker last season before moving back to defensive end, and he is someone who can fit into this hybrid system nicely.
