NY Giants linebacker Kyler Fackrell intercepted Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and returned it for a touchdown, extending the Giants’ lead to 14-3.
NY Giants linebacker Kyler Fackrell made the defense’s most impressive play of the season Sunday.
Fackrell made Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott pay, when he let a Dak Prescott pass bounce off his fingertips and returned it 46 yards four a touchdown to lift the Giants to a 14-3 lead with 5:48 remaining in the first quarter.
The interception was Prescott’s fourth of the season. Meanwhile, the pick-six was the first interception of Fackrell’s career, it’s likely one that he won’t soon forget.
