The New York Giants got off to a rough start against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Things were looking grim after they coughed up a fumble and allowed a touchdown.
And then Landon Collins happened.
Case Keenum, to his credit, threw a good pass for the Rams, but Collins, the safety who has only missed a handful of plays this season and is the Giants’ leading tackler, flies in for the interception.
And that’s when the fun begins.
Collins breaks a tackle, changes direction, evades another tackle as he crosses the field from side-to-side, and eventually makes it to the end zone for the touchdown. The play was reviewed, like all scoring plays, but was confirmed and Collins provided the equalizer and, perhaps, the spark the Giants needed to turn things around.
The touchdown and ensuing extra point made the game 10-10 with less than 10 minutes to go in the second quarter.
