Martellus Bennett already had three receptions Sunday, as he walked through the MetLife Stadium exit tunnel after the New York Giants had trounced the Green Bay Packers, 38-10, when realized he was about to make the biggest catch of his night. The Giants tight end was throwing his gloves up to a kid when a middle-aged man wearing a David Wilson jersey leaned over the youngster and fell over the rail and onto Bennett 15 feet below. Bennett said he got tangled up with a cameraman but was able to catch the man and was not hurt. "I was doing what I usually do, moseying to the locker room and meandering around," said Bennett.  "Naturally, I just wanted to step back, like, 'oh (shoot),' but I did the righteous thing and I stepped up. I caught him, I saved his life, I tapped into my inner superhero, which I do have." "I'm usually a ninja, but my Spidey-senses told me he was going to take a fall, so I saved his life," said the immodest Bennett.  "He owes me his first-born or something.  Actually I don't want that.  Maybe a sandwich or something." The boisterous Bennett may never get a chance to cash in on his hero sandwich. When last seen, the fallen fan was seen pleading his case to New Jersey State Troopers while being escorted to the MetLife Stadium offices, where he was to be booked on undisclosed charges. What did the superhero have to say about that. "That sucks," said Bennett.
