Giants’ Forgotten WR Manningham Delivers Big Time

Mario Manningham is no longer the Giants’ forgotten receiver.

Manningham emerged from the shadow of Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz with a catch that will rival David Tyree’s Super Bowl helmet grab four years ago, and the Giants knocked off the New England Patriots 21-17 on Sunday.

Manningham’s catch wasn’t as improbable as Tyree’s grab that led the Giants to a 17-14 win over New England in 2008, but it was just as clutch and just as timely.

Running a go pattern up the left sideline on a first-and-10 from their own 12, Manningham made a 38-yard over-the-shoulder catch between two defenders and right in front of Patriots coach Bill Belichick to help set up Ahmad Bradshaw’s game-winning 6-yard TD run with 57 seconds to go.
