Rueben Randle Key Ingredient in New York Giants Turnaround


The New York Giants had an extremely disappointing beginning to their season as the G-Men started off 0-6. However, they have rattled off four consecutive victories and sit just a game and a half back of the Eagles in the weak NFC East. Rueben Randle’s major improvement from a year ago has been a big help in the Giants improbable turnaround.

Last season, Randle  struggled as a rookie, playing in 16 games with only 19 receptions for 298 yards and three touchdowns. He has improved dramatically and is a vital part of the Giant’s passing game. He is currently third on the team in receptions with 29 and receiving yards with 460.

Most importantly, Randle has a nose for the end zone and has innate  ability to score. The former LSU Tiger, leads the team in touchdown catches with six. In fact, Randle has been on the receiving end of exactly half of Eli Manning’s touchdown throws.

Randle’s improved production could not have come at a better time and he has caught a touchdown in all but one of the games during the Giant’s current winning streak. Randle should be able to continue his success next week, against a Dallas Cowboys team that ranks dead last in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game, with 313.
