2. Jalin Hyatt must be more invovled moving forward

One of the main takeaways from Sunday's win was the strong play of Jalin Hyatt - though he wasn't out on the field for a whole lot of snaps. Hyatt posted only two receptions in the victory, but he led the team with 89 yards. A large chunk of that came on his 58-yard reception from Daniel Jones to open up the second half. However, his second grab of the game was a thing of beauty too:

You've got to love everything about this play. The Giants fooled the Cardinals front seven with the play-action call, the offensive line gave Danny Dimes just enough time to get the throw off and Hyatt climbed the ladder and leaped high into the sky to come down with a fantastic 31-yard reception. He had an Arizona DB all over him in the process.

This is the kind of reception that a true WR1 hauls in. Hyatt was only out on the field for 14 snaps, 21 percent of the total workload. Moving forward, we would love to see Hyatt get more run for this offense, as he has proven that he can step up for this unit when his number is called. With his electric speed, Hyatt can be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses.
