I am sure that you all remember this hit:
I am sure you also remember the ensuing penalty on Isa Abdul-Quddus for hitting a defenseless receiver around the head and leading with the head. The Giants went on to score a TD on that drive, closing the gap to 21-10 before we throttled them the rest of the game.
I couldn't find a video, but if you were watching you could see Jenkins made an effort not to lead with his head when he hit Kelly and kept him from making the catch. Atlanta was only down four points at the time, so this was definitely an important play and a 15 yard penalty would have hurt us a lot.
I just wanted to take the time to note that Jenkins adjusted his play to stay within the rules. I don't know if the coaches have been working with the defense on this, but if they have they deserve some credit, too. I haven't really noticed as many of those calls against us and maybe that is a by-product of our team adjusting to the new rules. I'd also like to say that this shows that the defense can still break up passes and I like that we are doing just that.
