Daily Blitz: Wilson’s “super return” sparks offense

Posted by Dan Salomone on October 15, 2012 – 9:00 am

He’s getting close.

Coming off a blocked field goal before halftime in a defensive grudge match, the Giants offense needed a spark coming out of the locker room in San Francisco. David Wilson, who already had kick returns of 44 and 53 in previous weeks, stepped up to the plate.

The 49ers won the coin toss and elected to receive to begin the game, which gave the ball to the Giants to start the second half with a 10-3 lead. That’s when Wilson ripped off a 66-yard return and gift-wrapped the ball on the San Francisco 32-yard line for the offense to take over. Seven plays later, Ahmad Bradshaw scored on a one-yard leap into the end zone and gave the Giants a 14-point lead.

Wilson had two returns for 93 yards on the day, upping his season average to 28.4.

“The kickoff return after the half was huge,” Tom Coughlin said of Wilson, who also had a 46-yard return called back due to a holding penalty in the first quarter. “That was a momentum-changing play in that we came out, we knew what we had to do offensively. And they kicked the ball off and we had a super return. David again looked like he might go all the way, but [he] put us in excellent, excellent field position.”
