2. Isaiah Simmons saves the day vs. the Commanders
Another incredible play from the stunning win over Washington had to be Isaiah Simmons posting a pick-six for the ages. At this point in the game, NY was holding on to a lead, but Washington was driving and people were worried the Commanders were going to score late to steal the victory. Simmons had other ideas:
Sam Howell tried to make something happen out of nothing, but Simmons made him pay for it. Not only was Simmons able to come down with the sweet grab, but he also raced his way down the sideline for the score. It sealed the deal on a needed win on the road against the Commanders. Thanks for this, Isaiah.
1. Jason Pinnock's 102 yard pick-six in South Beach
Jason Pinnock has been tremendous this season and looks like one of Big Blue's long-term safeties. This play against Miami earlier in the season is the best and most surprising play of New York's 2023 campaign. Yes, Miami ended up cruising to an easy win, but this interception is something that Pinnock will always remember:
Tua Tagovailoa's pass goes right off the hands of Bobby Okereke and into the arms of Pinnock, who flies down the sideline and into the endzone for a pick-six. This play was the Giants' first first-half touchdown of the season and was kind of the turning point for Wink Martindale's defense, which has been a very good unit since this play.
