The little guy was not happy, but his anger soon turned to extreme joy when they finally gave him the jersey he wanted.

The Giants' best player is hobbled and their offensive line needs work, which led to a 24–10 defeat to the mighty Lions.

At least Brandon Marshall (of the Broncos) had fun with fans mistaking him for Brandon Marshall (of the Giants).
