Martindale and the Giants are fresh off an upset victory over the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card Round, beating them 31-24 on Sunday. New York held Minnesota to just 332 yards of total offense, outgaining the Vikings by 99 yards in the win. Martindale helped put together a great plan for slowing down league-leading receiver Justin Jefferson, who was held to seven catches for 47 yards.

This is Martindale’s first season with the Giants after spending a decade with the Ravens from 2012-2021 as their linebackers coach and defensive coordinator. New York ranked 17th in points allowed and 25th in yards allowed this season under Martindale.
