Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has made some not-so-subtle tweets about his impressions regarding the New York Giants and some
Cruz played in 70 games over seven seasons for the Giants, totaling 25 touchdowns and averaging 65 yards per game.
They’ve relied heavily on their multifaceted passing attack with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, Victor Cruz and Eli Manning, but the past two games have showed that the run game may be picking up steam and at quite a good time.
When Victor Cruz failed to return to action last season, few would’ve truly bet on the fact that he’d ever be back in Giant blue. Two weeks into the 2016 NFL season, and Cruz has not only played, but he’s played a massive role in deciding two down to the wire games.
If last year’s 52-49 offensive showcase, in which the Saints came out on top in the Superdome, is any indication of how today’s rematch between the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints will be a real treat.
The New York Giants finally did what they failed to do for most of last season: Finish games. Eli Manning tossed the go-ahead score to Victor Cruz with 6 minutes left as the Giants edged out the Dallas Cowboys, 20-19 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.
What would typically be a thrilling matchup down in “Big D” between two of the better quarterbacks in the NFL is now reduced to a “David vs. Goliath” storyline for rookie Dak Prescott. Prescott did perform well in the preseason, but to expect him to come out and compete right away, regardless of the defense he’s facing, would be too much to ask.
The Giants and Cruz, a restricted free agent, have been unable to come to terms on a contract extension since last season. The star wide receiver did not receive an offer from any team before last Friday’s deadline, when teams could attempt to sign Cruz to an offer sheet.
