"There's definitely a rivalry. You always want to beat them…actually you kind of always want to beat the crap out of them."
Then Victor Cruz went out and did it. Shocking the New York Jets, The New York Gisnts he plays for and the ESPN Monday Night Football broadcast crew, not to mention the crowd, Cruz six catches for 145 yards and three touchdowns.
Cruz first touchdown catch was a circus one-handed grab for a 64-yard score (from Giants.com):
Now, the New York Giants, who won the game 31 to 16, are rich at wide receiver and have to figure out who they're going to get rid of to make sure the free agent trash-talker who can back it up stays on the team.
