CB James Bradberry – 2:31 remaining in the 1st Quarter
Each game it seems cornerback James Bradberry continues to solidify his standing as the Giants’ best defensive player, and the most impactful free agent signing in Gettleman’s tenure.
Sunday, with 2:31 remaining in the first quarter, Washington quarterback Kyle Allen seemed to misread the Giants’ coverage and threw it directly at Bradberry, who pulled down his second interception of the season.
Even Bradberry seemed surprised Allen fired the ball right at him.
“I was surprised,” Bradberry admitted. “I just wanted to make sure I didn’t drop it. That’s kind of why I double caught it. We were in a cover three zone and pretty much took my drop and I was in the right place at the right time.”
The Giants converted Bradberry’s interception into a touchdown when Daniel Jones hit Darius Slayton for a beautifully placed 23-yard touchdown, the Giants’ only offensive touchdown of the game.
Bradberry has been instrumental to the Giants’ success this season, but his interception wasn’t his only pivotal moment on Sunday …
