New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin says that putting pressure on Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman was key for their first win of the season.

Tom Coughlin has said that applying pressure to the quarterback helped the New York Giants secure their first win of the season.

The NFC East side restricted Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman to 20 completions from 53 attempts in the 23-7 victory.

The head coach told reporters: "We didn't have but one sack, but we did hit the quarterback a lot. Jason [Pierre-Paul] was certainly in the middle of that, as was really our front, our blitzers, our linebackers.

"We came out of the secondary with Antrel [Rolle] and Will Hill, for example, and they got involved in there. I did think that we made steps forward.

"That's the whole point, we've been trying to create is that pressure again, where the quarterback knows coming in when he plays the Giants, he's going to have to contend with that."

The Giants face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
