Another week, another game-altering play by James Bradberry
Cornerback James Bradberry continues to build a case that he isn’t just the most impactful addition made during Dave Gettleman’s three offseasons as general manager, but the best player on the Giants’ roster, by a wide margin.
Thursday night, with 4:48 remaining in the first half, Bradberry made a leaping interception in the end zone on a pass intended for wide receiver John Hightower. Bradberry’s was Wentz’s 12th turnover of the season, and Bradberry’s third interception.
Bradberry’s interception halted a potential Eagles scoring drive, one week after his interception off Kyle Allen led to a Giants touchdown. Pro Football Focus’ fifth-ranked cornerback in the NFL isn’t just making highlight-reel worthy plays on defense — often against the opponent’s best wide receiver, he’s altering the course of games.
