The Giants wide receivers set out in the postseason to show they can stack up with any other corps around the NFL.
They did a whole lot more en route to the Super Bowl title, and now Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz have everyone’s attention as they join the debate.
The good people at NFL.com put together a list on this very issue, and while the duo came in second, they might just be the best big-play combo in the NFL.
Here’s a look at where they came in, according to NFL.com:
1. Roddy White and Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
2. Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz, New York Giants: The best big-play combination of the NFL.
3. Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
4. Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
5. DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia Eagles
*In the postseason, Nicks had 28 catches for 444 yards and four touchdowns (long of 72), while Cruz racked up 269 yards and a touchdown on 21 receptions.
