New York Giants Spotlight: Will Hill

+Read full article
Will Hill

Jim O’Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Flashback to the New York Giants‘ loss at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles. There was a play where LeSean McCoy took a handoff and tried to make a move to the outside. He had his legs cut out from under him by a New York defender who came flying in, seemingly out of nowhere.

No, it wasn’t Antrel Rolle, whose made a living on plays of this nature in the past. It was second-year safety Will Hill.

The Eagles game marked Hill’s return from a four-game suspension he served to start the season. In the game, he recorded 11 tackles, one of which came for a loss of yards. He followed that up with five tackles against the Chicago Bears last week.

This is only Hill’s second season in the NFL and he looks as if he could be a big part of New York Giants football in the future. As a rookie, Hill appeared in 12 games, collected 38 combined tackles and forced two fumbles. He has a nose for the ball and can lay some jaw-dropping and neck-snapping hits.

Right now, the Giants are lacking playmakers on defense. They lost Stevie Brown back in the preseason. Brown was a quarterback’s nightmare and a interception magnet a year ago, reeling in eight interceptions. Also, RolleĀ has been pretty much a non-factor this year. Rolle was named a captain in the preseason but he sure hasn’t led by example out on the gridiron.

Keep an eye on Hill’s progression this season. He seems to be in another gear and could turn into a disruptive force on defense, which is something the Giants desperately need.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
