It's funny how quickly perception can change because of one play.
If Corey Webster doesn't come down with an interception near the goal line with just over four minutes to play on Sunday afternoon, there's a good chance that the Giants lose to the Bills and that we're sitting here discussing the bleak future of the Giants.
Instead of being 4-2 and in first place in a mediocre division, they would be 3-3 and stuck in the muck of a division that would look even worse.
One play that takes the Giants from being back page buffoons for the second straight week to being the subject of fawning work from columnists who certainly had the knives out before Webster's pick.
And let's not forget the dropped interception of an Eli Manning pass on third down before the winning field goal when we discuss shifting perceptions as Manning would be skewered instead of praised simply because another player held onto a pass.
Let us not write any grand narratives then about what...

Webster's big game comes at the perfect time for Giants
The line between being the hero or the goat is thin for an NFL cornerback, and the Giants' Corey Webster spent Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium teetering precariously on that line while battling Buffalo wide receiver Steve Johnson.

Corey Webster saved the Giants’ defense from having to answer some unpleasant questions by making two crucial interceptions in yesterday’s 27-24 victory over the Bills at MetLife Stadium.
Webster picked off Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick at the Giants’ 4-yard line with 4:10 left in the game and the...
The last time the Bills moved down the field in the closing minutes against the Giants in a big game, it ended with Scott Norwood going wide right from 47 yards in the final seconds of Super Bowl XXV. And the last time Corey Webster had a game-saving interception in a big game it was against Brett Favre in overtime of the NFC Championship Game four years ago in Green Bay.
Cornerback Corey Webster was beaten for a game-tying touchdown pass to Stevie Johnson but also had two interceptions against Ryan Fitzpatrick, who came into the game with only four INTs all season. Webster on both picks was in man coverage on Johnson and jumped on underthrown passes.
It is far too early to know how this Giants season is going to finish up, but it certainly seems like it is going to be an exciting ride.
The Giants looked like they were on their way to another brutal fourth-quarter loss when Corey Webster snatched the ball and the game away from the Bills. Webster's second interception of the game came on the Giants' four-yard-line with...
On the verge of blowing their second straight fourth-quarter lead, the Giants turned the tables on the Buffalo Bills in the final 4:02.

Defensively, they overcame two big plays by the Buffalo offense and got a perfectly-timed interception from Corey Webster with four minutes remaining to spark the win. Offensively, Ahmad Bradshaw scored three times and the running game showed signs of life. More importantly, Eli Manning played...
