Victor Cruz Video: Watch NY Giants WR Salsa Dance After TD Catch vs. Cowboys
A salsa dance, that is.
On Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys in a critical matchup for the NFC East title, Cruz got the Giants off to a good start, catching a short slant pass by quarterback Eli Manning and sprinting up the left sideline for a 74-yard touchdown.
At the end of it, Cruz gave the Giants faithful a little salsa dance, blowing kisses to the crowd.
The score put the Giants up, 7-0, with about five minutes left in the first quarter and set the tone at MetLife Stadium as the Giants raced off to a 14-0 advantage by the beginning of the second quarter.
Cruz's story has been remarkable this season. Headed into Sunday's game, the undrafted rookie out of Massachusetts had caught 76 balls for 1,358 yards and eight touchdowns. He's become one of the true deep threats in the NFL due to his blazing speed and his 99-yard touchdown in Week 16 against the New York Jets is further proof of this.
Manning and the Giants knew what they had with receivers Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham headed into the season, but they could have never expected Cruz to lead the talented receiving corps in receptions, yards and touchdown catches.
In the end, it may actually be Cruz who is the biggest-difference maker for this team in the receiving corps and his performance on Sunday could have the Giants set for the postseason.
What were Cruz's "weaknesses" headed into the 2011 NFL draft again?
Whatever they were, it's hard to remember them now.
