It just had to be James Bradberry. Late in the first quarter against the Eagles, with the NY Giants already down 14-0, Daniel Jones had a throw to forget, tossing an interception while trying to hit wideout Darius Slayton. To make things worse, it indeed was Bradberry who came away with the big-time turnover against his former team.
Bradberry, released by the Giants last offseason, wasn’t happy after NY decided to move on from him and he no doubt has had revenge on his mind each time he’s lined up against his ex-teammates. After he picked off Jones, Bradberry decided to stick it to his old team, trolling the sideline.
James Bradberry reminded the Giants of what they’re missing on Saturday
As you can see in that clip above, Bradberry bowed his head and delivered a ‘thank you’ type of gesture towards the NY players and coaches. Is Bradberry saying he’s thankful the Giants released him, leading to Philly signing him? That’s sure what it seems like. You just know Bradberry loved making a game-changing play like this against the Giants.
Meanwhile for the G-Men, the timing of the INT couldn’t have been worse, as the Eagles were up two scores and Big Blue was hoping to try and build some offensive momentum. In the first half, the Eagles looked fantastic on offense, while the Giants took several steps back.
Jones was riding high after his showing against Minnesota, but the Philly defense brought him back down to earth. The Giants had a lot of hope leading up to this one, with Jones and Saquon Barkley expected to be at their best, which is what we’ve seen out of them over the past month.
Instead, the Eagles couldn’t stop landing proverbial punches on the G-Men, with Bradberry’s being the biggest blow. It’s been a year to remember for the Giants, but the team dressed in green, including Bradberry, reminded everyone of how strong they can be. NY had no answers for them.
