The play of the season and the first touchdown in the first half this year for the NY Giants. Take a bow, Jason Pinnock. With the Giants down 14-3, it looked like the Dolphins were about to go up 21-3 before halftime. Instead, Pinnock had other ideas.
In game-changing fashion, Pinnock intercepted Tua Tagovailoa and took it back 102 yards for an epic pick-six. Bobby Okereke came up huge with the pass deflection, while No. 27 was there to seal the deal for the G-Men. Oh, this was also a throw that Tagovailoa should have never made:
Jason Pinnock INT of Tua Tagovailoa was a thing of beauty
We don't have to tell you how bad the Giants needed this. Their backs were against the wall and it felt like a Miami score there would turn the lights off at the stadium. Instead, Okereke and Pinnock were there to deliver for Wink Martindale and Brian Daboll.
The Dolphins were able to add a field goal before halftime, but for the Giants to only be down 17-10 at the break felt like a small miracle. The offense continues to struggle, with the offensive line being a joke once again.
Evan Neal has people furious with his tough play, while left tackle Joshua Ezeudu, of course in for All-Pro LT Andrew Thomas, had two false starts and a brutal holding call (which was decline) go against him in the first 30 minutes alone.
There hasn't been much to be excited about for the G-Men in this one, but Pinnock just got everyone off their seats thanks to his amazing effort. In order for the Giants to pull off a thrilling upset in Week 5, they're going to need some luck on their side - yes, another Pinnock-type play will be needed for this squad.
