Giants Receivers Suddenly Getting A Lot Of Attention

Three days before the biggest game of his life, Victor Cruz wasn’t discussing either the Green Bay Packers’ secondary or the New York Giants’ chances against the defending Super Bowl Champions on Sunday in the NFC divisional round.

Cruz instead was answering questions about being a dad for the first time, how much sleep was he getting and spending his first night at home with his daughter, Kennedy.

In some senses, the scene was remarkable. A year ago, no one would have cared about Cruz. He missed most of the season with hamstring injury after making the roster as a free agent.

People can’t get enough of him now after a season that saw him set a team single-season record for yards receiving (1,536), while being named second-team All Pro.
