The Giants may not have the best group of linebackers, but they can make plays when called upon and are getting better each week.
Rookie Greg Jones made an incredible play on a second-down run play from the one-yard line, tackling Cadillac Williams for a two-yard loss.
He did make a couple of mistakes in coverage, but he certainly has the skills to be a good middle linebacker in this league and the Giants have to be encouraged by his play.
Michael Boley had a great game that was highlighted by a 65-yard fumble return for a touchdown. Sam Bradford passed it a little behind the line of scrimmage to Williams, who could not corral the ball, on a bubble screen. Boley alertly picked the ball up and took it all the way to the end zone.
It was definitely the play of the day for the linebackers, who seemed to struggle at times against the high-speed, no-huddle pass offense of the Rams.
Mathias Kiwanuka made a couple of great open-field tackles, but was generally unimpressive for most of the game. He still needs time adjusting to the new position.
