The New York Giants picked up their first win of the year as they stunned the Denver Broncos 23-10. Here are the game balls. 

Few gave the New York Giants a chance of winning the game since they were 0-5, down their top four wide receivers, and facing a Denver Broncos team coming off a bye.

But the Giants defied the odds and played four solid quarters of football and came away with a win.

It was a total team effort, but a few players stood out and deserve game balls

1. Janoris Jenkins

After giving up a few completions early in the game to Demaryius Thomas, Jenkins clamped down and showed everyone why he made the Pro Bowl last season.

His 43-yard pick-6 with 48 seconds remaining in the first half put the Giants up 17-3 and in total control of the game. In the fourth quarter, he forced Thomas to fumble and stopped C.J. Anderson short of the goal line on a 4th-and-goal.

2. Evan Engram

It was imperative that the Giants offense get off to a fast start, and they did because of Evan Engram. He caught two passes on the opening drive and scored the first touchdown of the game in the second quarter.

He finished the game with five receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown in what was the best game of his young career.

3. Jason Pierre-Paul

With Olivier Vernon out once again, the Giants needed JPP to step and he delivered. He finished the game with eight tackles and sacked Trevor Siemian three times. He also gave a pre-game speech that seemed to set the tone for the game.

4. Orleans Darkwa

Darkwa had the finest game of his career carrying the ball 21 times for 117 yards. He was the first running back to gain over 100 yards this season against the Broncos who had the number one ranked rushing defense coming into this game.

5. Mike Sullivan

Although his not a player, offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan deserves a ton of credit for the Giants success on Sunday night. The play calling wasn’t predictable, and he stuck with the ground game.

Jason's first love was football while growing up in northern New Jersey. For the past three years, he has covered the New York Giants, as well as several boxing events along the East Coast.
