2. Breakout Game vs. Philadelphia

The day Victor Cruz became a household name. The U-Mass alum torched the Eagles secondary (which was hyped in the preseason as one of the best ever assembled) for two incredible touchdowns to give the Giants a rare victory at Lincoln Financial Field.

His first touchdown, a 74-yard catch and run, was the debut of the now famous salsa, and his second, a 29-yard catch, was made over two defenders in double coverage. Without this game, it’s unlikely Cruz becomes as famous or successful as he does. Throw in the fact that it was against a divisional rival, and this is definitely a top two moment.
