1. Trevon Diggs
Fans can say what they want about cornerback Trevon Diggs. Some call him overrated, some call him a superstar. Either way, what the second-year player is doing this season is something that no one had imagined.
Diggs currently leads the league in interceptions. He added his 10th of the season on Sunday after picking off quarterback Mike Glennon in the fourth quarter.
However, it was the time of his interception that proved why the Dallas defense won the team the game. After a sack-fumble by the Giants’ defense with a little over eight minutes remaining, New York was close to cutting the deficit to a one-score game. The Giants started their drive at Dallas’ 27-yard line, knocking on the door. When it mattered most, the defense was there. Glennon threw the ball up into the end-zone on second down, and Diggs came down with a critical interception.
The former Alabama star went to the ground and held on before wide receiver Kenny Golladay ripped it out. Instead of allowing the Giants to cut the lead to single digits, Diggs sealed the game with his interception.
