We'll be a doing a new weekly feature here on BGN highlighting the top five defensive plays from the previous days game. Luckily, it's a a good week to start such a feature. In previous weeks, it might have been pretty tough to find five.
1. Jason Babin's strip sack - This was essentially the game winning play. After the Eagles 18 play go ahead scoring drive, Eli Manning drove the Giants straight down the field with plenty of time left. At the 21 yard line, with NY threatening to score, Jason Babin hit Eli from his blindside causing a fumble that was picked up by Derek Landri. That basically ended the game.
2. Jamar Chaney's pick - Manning never saw Chaney in the middle of the field and basically threw the ball straight to him, but you have to give Jamar kudos for making the pick. How often do we see LBs drop those passes? All the time.
The final three are after the jump.
3. Cullen Jenkins ended DJ Ware's night with this hit.
4. I don't care if this was kind of late. It was awesome.
5. This is arguably my favorite gif of the season. From @dhm. (click on it)
