4. Trevon Diggs gets his first pick
Last week, Trevon Diggs had a night to remember — even if he didn’t light up the stat sheets. In his first game after signing a massive five-year, $97 million extension in the offseason, Diggs finished with three tackles and a forced fumble.
That’s enough to be proud of, especially considering the Giants had no luck at all when targeting him. However, he still did more than this.
Diggs not only forced the turnover when he stripped the ball out of Isaiah Hodgins' hands — following a 24-yard reception which was set to be one of the best plays of the night for New York — but he also caused one of the team’s two interceptions.
Late in the first quarter, Daniel Jones threw a short pass to running back Saquon Barkley. Before Barkley could secure the catch, Diggs lit him up and the ball bounced into the air and landed in the arms of DaRon Bland. The second-year cornerback then sprinted to the end zone for six.
Bland got the credit but Diggs was just as instrumental. And in this bold prediction, he continues to force turnovers, although this time he’s the one who gets the pick.
Zach Wilson will throw several passes up for grabs and that’s all Diggs will need to secure his first interception of the year.
