The end of Sunday's game was heart-stopping for NY Giants fans out there. With the G-Men up 14-7 against Washington, the Commanders were driving and in a great position to tie the game. With Ron Rivera known for taking chances, they might have even gone for two had they scored.
However, on 4th-and-5, a Sam Howell pass for Jahan Dotson fell to the turf and thousands of people in New York and New Jersey were incredibly relieved. Speaking of relieved, Darren Waller was certainly on the list. In the clip below, you can see a very nervous Waller for the final play:
Darren Waller had a priceless reaction to the game-sealing play vs. Washington
Waller quite literally had his hands over his face, as he was too scared to look on. We don't blame No. 12 for that, as everyone was expecting the worst for Big Blue during this sequence. With the way things have gone this season, it wouldn't have been a surprise to see Washington score here and then go for two to win it.
Thankfully, though, Dotson wasn't able to reel in the reception and the fans in the stands exploded in celebration knowing that win No. 2 on the season was on the way. As for Waller, he played a massive role in the Giants being able to come away with the victory.
On the day, the former Pro Bowler caught seven balls from Tyrod Taylor for 98 yards and the first touchdown of his NY career. Waller and Taylor hooked up for the first score of the game and it was a thing of beauty.
Waller has been a beast for the passing game in two of the past three weeks. While he had a bit of a down game against the Bills, Waller was quite impressive in the Week 5 loss to the Dolphins, posting eight receptions for 86 yards. He's starting to get into a groove with this offense for Brian Daboll. Look for him to have yet another big game vs. the Jets this weekend.
