With the game on the line, Leonard Williams was watching. For the first six plays of the Eagles’ Monday night overtime possession that would result in a game-winning touchdown, the former Jet defensive lineman was on the sideline.
“We had a rotation going and that’s basically it,” Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Tuesday.
Williams, dealt from the Jets to Giants in exchange for a third-round pick in 2020 and a 2021 fifth-round pick, was having a quality game, despite receiving just 51 of 89 defensive snaps. He had five solo tackles, one tackle for loss and deflected a Carson Wentz pass.
