Giants' Alec Ogletree scores miraculous pick six after ball narrowly misses ground

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v New York Giants

New York Giants fans haven't had much to cheer about this season as their team looks set to miss out on the playoffs for the second season in a row.

The team entered their Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend on a 2-7 record and looking to win two games on the bounce for the first time this season.

The Giants has a strong chance to do exactly that against the Bucs, as they haven't been on great form themselves with shaky performances from Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston.

New York's defense has been able to take advantage of Tampa Bay's poor quarterback performances, as they already have three interceptions in the game, with one being returned for a touchdown.

The interception that was returned for a touchdown happened in the opening minutes of the third quarter of the game, and it was quite a miraculous play.

With the score at 14-7 in favour of the Giants, the Bucs had a 2nd-and-8 on their own 11-yard line. Fitzpatrick threw the ball left but the play was broken up by Janoris Jenkins and as he tried to intercept the ball, it bounced on his body.

Alec Ogletree came flying in towards his teammate, snagged the ball away from him to complete the interception for New York, and then managed to get back onto his feet and run the ball into the endzone for the touchdown.

Somehow, both Jenkins and Ogletree managed to keep the ball in the air and off the ground in order to score on this play. Giants head coach Pat Shurmur must be very pleased with how his defense has performed so far in this game.

The game is currently in the fourth quarter with the Giants still leading, but the score is much closer now at 31-28.

As a result of his poor performances as well, Fitzpatrick has been benched by the Bucs with Winston replacing him for the second time this season.
