Cruz’s sensational 156-yard, three touchdown effort was weeks in the making.
“Justice has been served,” said Tom Coughlin after the game.
“Young man Victor Cruz really has had an outstanding camp. He works his
tail off every day. He’s made a lot of plays this past week.”
An undrafted player out of UMass last year, Cruz has a legitimate chance to make the Giants roster and challenge the players above him for snaps. He could push Sinorice Moss off the roster, and there have been some suggestions he could have a Domenik Hixon-like role as a returner and No. 4 wideout.
“Growing up, watching the Giants, seeing the blue all my life, I feel like I’m dreaming right now,” Cruz said.
