NY Giants DB Adoree’ Jackson – STUD
As the NY Giants’ offense seemed stuck in the mud early in the second quarter, Adoree’ Jackson made the kind of play that sparks a defense.
With 10:00 remaining in the first quarter, Tom Brady tried to rocket a pass to wide receiver Mike Evans, who had the ball bounce of his hands and up into the air, where Adoree’ Jackson snatched it and returned it 12 yards to the two-yard line.
Jackson’s pick was Brady’s eigth interception of the season, and it set up Thomas’ touchdown reception two plays later. It was also the kind of play that the NY Giants spent $39 million this offseason for Jackson to make.
