The Bosco Albert “B.A.” Baracus Award is given to the player who overpowered his competition. This player’s brute strength, force and “bad attitude” made players and fans alike stand up and take notice.

And the winner  is…Running back DeMarco Murray. Despite a very slow start, Murray ended the day with 131 rushing yards on 20 attempts. But it was his twisting, turning and reversing on a game breaking 48 yard run that was a body blow right to the Giant’s guts. And the way Murray finished a majority of his runs, head down ready to dish out punishment, reeked of B.A. Baracus. You have to “pity the fool” who tries to tackle DeMarco.

Honorable mention here to DeMarcus Ware. This award could have been split in half. Ware’s constant pressure or threat of pressure on quarterback Eli Manning made a big difference in this game. He recorded 5 tackles and two sacks,  but Ware also recorded the 100th sack of his career, solidifying  him as one of the all-time greats.

    You forgot a award, the under the Radar award. The guys has done it every since he has become a starter for the boys. You tend to expect it and not be wow by his high preformance of excellence, the winner is Sean Lee, for his 10 unassisted tackles and 12 tackle total for the game. This is typical vintage Sean lee.
