Holy smokes ladies and gentlemen, holy smokes! No one thought the NY Giants would be able to pull off an upset win over the Green Bay Packers in London on Sunday. Daniel Jones over Aaron Rodgers? In your dreams.

Well, dreams have come true, as the Giants just did the unthinkable, pulling off a huge win over the Packers at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, 27-22. This victory is another massive statement for new head coach Brian Daboll. Here’s our takeaways from the action, as this truly is a W people won’t forget in the near future.

5. NY Giants WR Darius Slayton looked fantastic

The Giants were without Kenny Golladay, Wan’Dale Robinson and Kadarius Toney for Sunday’s matchup. With this, someone on the outside needed to step up for Jones and this offense. Enter Darius Slayton.

Perhaps no one would have been able to guess that Slayton would have his best game of the year, as he’s been disappointing early on in 2022. Matter of fact, the Giants WRs have looked rough and you just never know what they’re going to be able to do. Slayton silenced so many of his haters against the Packers.

In the first half, he was getting bashed after he didn’t turn his head around on what could have been a huge gain for the offense. That wasn’t good. Then, Slayton turned things around and became a reliable option for Jones, leading the way with his six receptions for 79 yards. Moving forward, Slayton needs to be heavily involved in the O.
