New Yorker’s are thanking an unlikely hero, Victor Cruz, for the Giants slot in the N.F.C. East conference. Thank to this Puerto Rican wide-receiving wonder, who helped authored the 31-14 win over Dallas Cowboys yesterday.
There was his 74-yard touch down, a 44-yard catch and last week there was his catch, grab and run 99-year touchdown.
“I guess it’s just God-given ability,” Cruz said. “When I get the ball in my hands I try and make the most of every play, you know, I try and make the maximum yardage I can get every time I touch the ball.”
Cruz, 25, took an unlikely path to success coming to New York as an undrafted free agent and was signed in the off-season. Now he is getting ready to play in his first ever play-off season.
