Game Balls and Goats: Week 15 Edition
It was Justin Pugh's first game back after combatting a MCL injury and his return propelled the O-line. As a unit, the Giants' offensive line only allowed two sacks and as a team, they rushed for over 100 yards.
After losing Janoris Jenkins early in the game, DRC stepped up and moved from his normal slot/corner position to playing outside against Golden Tate. Rodgers-Cromartie finished the game with three pass deflections and a game sealing interception against Matt Stafford.
And of course, in typical OBJ fashion, the star WR had another one-handed TD to add to a decorated highlight reel.
Goats: RB Zack Zenner fumbled when the Lions were about to score a crucial TD. It killed the Lions' momentum and allowed the Giants to get the ball back in the second quarter.
