CB – Isaac Yiadom: DUD
After breaking in untouched on a first half sack, Isaac Yiadom became a favorite target of Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith the rest of the game.
Yiadom was toasted on a deep pass downfield to Chris Sims for a 45-yard gain. Later, when Smith hit wide receiver Terry McLaurin in traffic, Yiadom gave poor effort on a missed tackle that McLaurin broke en route to a 68-yard touchdown that pulled the Football Team to within 23-20 with 10:24 remaining.
The starting cornerback job opposite James Bradberry has been a revolving door for the Giants this season, as it was opposite ex-Giant Janoris Jenkins last season. Yiadom entered Sunday with a 37.3 coverage grade from Pro Football Focus, and it was easy to see why, and why his playing time should be limited whenever possible the rest of the season.
