Watch: Giants CB Trumaine McBride returns fumble 63-yards for TD
Defense was essentially nonexistent in Sunday’s matchup between the New Orleans Saints and New York Giants, but Giants cornerback Trumaine McBride made sure that there would be at least one defensive highlight.
With a little over seven minutes left in the fourth quarter and the score tied 42–42, McBride snagged the ball out of the air after receiver Willie Snead lost control of it following a huge hit from Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. McBride then took the ball 63-yards for a huge score.
The play was ruled a catch and a fumble, although it initially appeared to be an interception.
McBride’s touchdown was not enough to give the New York the victory, however, as the The Saints took the win 52–49 on a game winning 50-yard field goal from kicker Kai Forbath.
