With the Giants’ thrilling 41-34 victory, it’s time to vote for the Giants “Extra Effort” Player of the Game. Struggling to score in the first half, the Giants offense opened up for 28 points in the second half.
Here are this week’s candidates and a look at their performances:
31/51 passing, 510 YDS, 3 TD, 3 INT
Manning led the Giants to 510 net passing yards — the most in franchise history – and it was the first time they won a regular season game in which they threw at least 50 passes. Manning’s 510 yards were also the second-highest total by a quarterback in Giants history, next to Phil Simms’ 513 in 1985.
10 REC, 199 YDS (19.9 AVG), 1 TD, 50 LG
Nicks put up the sixth-best yardage total in franchise history and sparked the final go-ahead drive with a 50-yard reception late in the fourth quarter.
11 REC, 179 YDS (16.3 AVG), 1 TD, 80 LG
Cruz had a career-high 11 receptions and along with Nicks became the first tandem in NFL history to both record 10 catches and at least 175 yards receiving.
