It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's...

Have no fear ladies and gentleman of Gotham, Domenik Hixon is here!

Yesterday, Hixon compiled 269 all-purpose yards for the 10-1 New York Giants. He gained 180 yards via three kickoff returns, 21 yards through two punt returns, 57 receiving yards with six catches, and 11 yards with one carry of the ball.

Although Hixon never found the end zone, he was perhaps the game's most important participant. Time and time again Hixon set the Giants up with great field position, en route to their four touchdowns.

It should be duely noted that Hixon did his stunning special-teams work while valiantly filling in for the injured Plaxico Burress. A true modern-day Renaissance man, Hixon was the Giants' leading receiver, second leading rusher, and absolute phenom on special teams.

No one should be shocked by Hixon's performance, as this is not the first time he has put together a spectacular game. While filling in for the suspended Plaxico Burress, during Week Five against the Seahawks, Hixon caught four passes for 102 yards and one touchdown—before leaving the game in the first half with a concussion.

To have a player like Hixon on the team is invaluable. He simply rises to the occasion and makes it impossible to even notice that one of the NFL's elite receivers is missing from the Giants lineup.

So, if the Giants ever need help, they know who to callDomenik Hixon!
