B.J. Goodson: 6 Tackles, 2 Interceptions
This was a performance that no one really saw coming, as B.J. Goodson had just 27 tackles and no interceptions before last night’s contest.
Goodson was key to the Giants victory, with 2 interceptions that helped the Giants get more possessions for their offense. These two turnovers sparked a New York defense that had just 4 interceptions this year.
To everyone who doesn’t know who Goodson is, here’s a brief biography of him.
In 2016, the Giants selected him in the 4th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He went to college at Clemson, where he had 108 tackles and 5.5 sacks for the Clemson Tigers in 2015.
Coming out of Clemson, he was regarded as an athletic player who could make plays in the run and pass game (which he showed last night). Most people questioned his experience, as he started just one year in college at linebacker.
If Goodson continues to make an obvious impact, it’ll be hard for the Giants to keep him off the field going forward. Here is one of Goodson’s interceptions from last night.

It’s nice to see the tip drill work to perfection, as Janoris Jenkins tipped it, while Goodson cleans it up with the interception. We might continue to see Goodson get more opportunities in Week 11, against a Buccaneers team who has disappointed this year.
