Jake Ballard TD Catch vs PatriotsHere is the video of NY Giants TE Jake Ballard game winning touchdown catch against the New England Patriots week 9 of the 2011 season, Eli Manning makes a great throw. This gave the Giants a 23-20 lead, after the extra point the final score was 24-20.

Number 85 has been HUGE for New York this season, I've been raving about Ballard for several weeks now. He made BIG catches in this game including an early catch where he took a viscous hit but got up as if nothing happened.

In this same drive he caught what may have been the most important reception of the game, a ball thrown down the middle of the field where Jake reached up with one hand and secured the ball to get us a first down and prolong the drive. The NY TE ended his day with 4 big catches, 67 yards and the game winning TD! Here is the video:

He is becoming a fan favorite, here is an article I wrote about him a few weeks back Jake Ballard Emerging for NY Giants.
