Just when the NY Giants needed it most, Andrew Thomas of all players stepped up to the plate to score.
Coming off of a huge interception by Adoree’ Jackson off a tipped pass in the second quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NY Giants were in prime position to score and tie up the football game. As we all saw, they did.
It came on 2nd and goal after a Daniel Jones option run that went for three yards.
After this, Jones took the snap, and after feeling the pressure he lobbed up a pass that was eventually caught by NY Giants left tackle Andrew Thomas who made a beautiful leaping catch.
The NY Giants were seen in practice throwing passes to their offensive lineman in practice this week, now we know why.
It is now a 10-10 game with 8:35 remaining. The NY Giants need to take this momentum they now have and capitalize.
Thomas was making his return from a three-game stint on injured reserve, and wasted no time making a significant impact.
While Thomas, chosen by the NY Giants No. 4 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft has a strong case as the most important offensive player on New York’s roster, he also showed Monday night that he has the ability to be a weapon in the passing game, as well.
