PLAYERS: Victor Cruz
TEAMS: New York Giants

New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz is returning to where his on-field salsa dancing began - Philadelphia. Believe it or not, it was roughly a year ago that Cruz started his rise to national prominence by catching two touchdown passes in the City of Brotherly Love in helping the Giants post a 29-16 win over the Eagles. Until that game, Cruz was known mostly for catching three touchdowns the previous preseason in a win over the Jets. On Sept. 25, 2011, Cruz jumpstarted a season that would see him set a single-season team record for yards receiving by catching TDs of 74 and 28 yards in the Giants' only win over Philadelphia in the past three seasons. Each TD was celebrated with a rhythmic Latin American dance.

Are these two actually best friends who are just toying with all of us and laughing every time we write something about their feud? If that’s the case, they are doing a terrific job of acting.

Victor Cruz: I would admit I didn’t catch the ball if I was Golden Tate

When the officials were trying to sort out what had happened on the final play of the Packers-Seahawks game on Monday night, Golden Tate had no choice but to insist he had joint possession of the ball and had caught the game-winning touchdown. Tate’s job is to do anything he can to help his team win, so obviously you can’t fault him even if M.D. Jennings clearly intercepted the...
