New York Giants have been waiting for a good news story and here it is.
After a terrible start to the NFL season which saw them humbled on the road in Detroit against the Lions, one play today showed that there is plenty of life left in the Giants’ season.
Eli Manning had a devastatingly bad 2013, setting a personal high of 27 interceptions in a single NFL season, but on Sunday he connected with young receiver Rueben Randle in a play that shows the potential of their connection.
Randle has been equally criticized, with the third-year player receiver gaining plenty of doubters after an average pre-season showing which was backed up by a poor performance in Detroit last week.
But on any given Sunday things can change, and the Giants’ touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals was a great example of Manning and Randle’s resilience.
Cardinals’ cornerback Patrick Peterson is one of the most talented and respected defensive backs in the NFL, but undeterred by his protection of Randle close to the endzone, Manning fired Randle’s way.
And the wideout out of Louisiana State held up his end of the bargain with a spectacular one-handed catch for an epic touchdown.
