NY Giants cornerback James Bradberry pulled down his third interception of the season, and second over the past two games, picking off Eagles QB Carson Wentz in the first half of Thursday night’s game.
NY Giants cornerback James Bradberry strikes again.
Seeming to solidify his stature as the Giants’ most dominant and talented defensive player each week, Bradberry pulled down an acrobatic interception off Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, denying rookie wide receiver John Hightower a first half touchdown.
The interception was Bradberry’s third of the season, since signing with the Giants on the first day of free agency back in March.
Wentz has been turnover prone throughout this season, and Bradberry’s interception was the Eagles quarterback’s 10th of the season.
Through the Giants’ first six games of the season, Bradberry held opposing quarterbacks to a 69.9 quarterback rating when targeting the former Carolina Panther, and wide receivers averaged just 10.5 yards per reception against him.
The Giants trailed the Eagles 10-7 at ahlftime, despite Philadelphia owning the time of possession battle 20: 24 to 9:36 and out gaining the Giants 222 yards to 124.
