The New York Giants got things off to a rough start against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Things were looking positively grim after they coughed up a fumble and then 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 team’s 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 entirety of the field from side-to-side, and eventually makes it all the way to the end zone for the touchdown. The play was reviewed, like all scoring plays, but it 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 under 10 minutes to go in the second quarter.
