There are a lot of things that are often forgotten in a loss. Unfortunately on Sunday the cornerback play of Ronald Darby and Stephon Gilmore against a strong receiver tandem of Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle went for naught.
Gilmore and Darby were largely responsible for holding the Bayou Brothers to a combined eight catches for 69 yards and a touchdown. The two Giants receivers were targeted 18 times in the game by Eli Manning.
Darby and Gilmore were first and second in pass breakups with three and two respectively to lead the team. Gilmore also had his first interception of the season in the fourth quarter.
“I had to be aggressive and they were dinking and dunking us so I said, I have to be aggressive and jump some routes and try to get the ball back to our offense,” said Gilmore of his INT intended for Randle.
Beckham had just five catches for 38 yards. It was Beckham’s lowest output since his third career game almost a year ago against Dallas.
