The New York Giants (8-5) came into Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints (5-8) on a mission. Both NFC East division rival Dallas Cowboys (7-6) and Redskins (7-6) were closing in on the first place Giants, with both teams winning their games this past Sunday. The Giants desperately needed a win over the Saints to keep a lead in the division. However, defeating the Saints and Quarterback Drew Brees has been a very hard task for the Giants over the years. While Brees has been the Saints’ Quarterback he has been absolutely outstanding against the Giants starting 4-0 with 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions before Sunday. In the last season’s game the Giants fell to the Saints by a score of 49-24.
This time it would be much different, defeating the Saints by a score of 52-27. Many players had big games, but none like the Giants’ first-round draft pick out of Virginia Tech, David Wilson. Wilson rushed for 100 yards on 13 attempts and a pair of touchdowns. In comparision, he has 41 carries for 211 yards and three touchdowns on the season. Wilson also had a huge day returning kicks returning four kicks, averaging a colossal 56 yards per return and also took one kick for a 97 yard touchdown, the first kick return touchdown of his career.
