On Sunday, it felt like deja vu for NY Giants fans watching Big Blue start off slugglish against the Arizona Cardinals. Like last week, the Giants could not get anything going on offense and found themselves trailing 20-0 at halftime. Seriously, against Arizona?

However, NY's O came to life in the second half as they outscored Arizona 31-8 to rally for an improbable 31-28 win. Daniel Jones played very well, especially in the second half throwing for over 300 yards and two scores after his terrible Week 1 effort.

Things in the second half started off with a bang, as Jalin Hyatt told Danny Dimes to feed him the pigskin. No one has forgotten about that 58-yard connection to open the third quarter. As it turns out, the rookie wideout had a special message for Jones right before the ball was thrown. This very well may have saved the NY campaign:

NY Giants WR Jalin Hyatt told Daniel Jones to trust him to make a play

After a quiet NFL debut for Hyatt, as he only had one target that resulted in him dropping a wide-open pass, it was clear the third-rounder was coming into this game with a big chip on his shoulder. Just like the rest of the Giants offense, Hyatt was quiet in the first half. However, that all changed after the break.

The Giants were desperate for something big to happen for them offensively. After a vanilla first 30 minutes of play, Jones took a shot down the field and Hyatt was wide open after burning by the Arizona secondary. This toss and catch could not have come at a better moment.

Hyatt finished the game with two receptions for 89 yards. His second reception of the game was a contested 31-yard grab, which once again showcased how much Jones can trust him. Hyatt led the G-Men with his 89 yards, something not a lot of people expected heading into Week 2.

With his incredible speed, Hyatt can be a game-changer for this offense. It must be an incredible feeling for him too knowing that Jones is going to have plenty of belief in him to come down with some primetime grabs whenever his number is called moving forward.
