Geoff Schwartz says Jennings TD Run ‘One Of The Best I’ve Seen’ [AUDIO]
Rashad Jennings' fourth quarter 51-yard touchdown reception in Buffalo last Sunday was the game-changer that put the Bills away for good.
"It’s easily one of the best runs I’ve ever witnessed in person," said Giants offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz.
When Jennings caught the ball at the line of scrimmage, it looked like it would be a gain of just a few yards but he then exploded past a defender and up the field for a early season-defining moment.
"When he stiff armed that safety, and got into the end zone, it was a relief. We kind of stalled on offense and our defense was playing lights out. They played like hell all game, and we needed something to happen on offense. We needed someone to make a play, we needed something to happen, to win that game and Eli got rid of that ball on the third down and he knew Rashad was one on one and he threw him a good ball, a ball he could run after the catch.
"And that stuff matters, being able to throw a ball, to a receiver in a spot where he can go make a play after the catch. A lot of quarterbacks struggle with that, Eli does a great job, and Rashad made the first guy miss, made the second miss, and that stiff arm fired up the whole side line. It was just a relief that we got into the end zone and to do it like that on a play that was probably the number one play of the weekend was pretty special."
Jennings fourth quarter play helped the G-Men seal the deal in the final period, something they couldn't do the first two games. But now New York has two wins in a row as they host the 49ers on Sunday Night.
