4. Landon Collins

Landon Collins was making plays all over the field on Sunday. He finished the game with a team-high eight tackles and two of those tackles were for losses. He also recorded a sack on the last play of the first quarter on a 3rd-and-14 on the Redskins 30-yard line.

Collins is the quarterback of the Giants secondary, and his awareness was one of the reasons the Redskins were unable to connect on a big play to DeSean Jackson.

Collins has already been named to his first Pro Bowl, and will likely make the All-Pro team, and possibly be named Defensive Player of the Year. He’ll also get our fourth game ball.
