The New York Giants are coming off a big win in Week 15 against the Washington Commanders. Now, they are prepping for a Christmas Even Week 16 matchup against one of the NFC's top teams, the Minnesota Vikings.

Giants defensive coordinator Wink Martindale, who can be a character, was asked on Wednesday about the upcoming matchup, specifically about going up against the high-flying Kevin O'Connell offense, and delivered a hilarious quote.

Martindale said:

I'm the blue collar guy going against Harry Styles."

The comparison and quote are both on brand and pop culture relevant. It sure got a chuckle from those around. If Martindale's defense can hold down O'Connell's offense, the G-Men should have a great chance to come away with the victory.

The Vikings defense has been their issue this season. Minnesota is surrendering 24.9 points per game this season, which ranks No. 28 in the NFL.

The Giants are currently 3,5-point road underdogs in Week 16 against the Vikings, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
