Leonard: Davis Webb rises to occasion in second chance for Giants, throwing first NFL touchdown

But once the play was overturned to an incomplete pass, Webb went to work, igniting the drive with a beautiful 27-yard pass to Sterling Shepard on 3rd-and-17 from the Giants’ own 14-yard line. He would complete passes to five different receivers on the drive: Gallman, Shepard, Cody Latimer (his first catch as a Giant; a tough one, at that), Shane Smith and Evan Engram.

The Giants have no clear solution in their secondary due to injuries, inconsistent play and lack of depth. Strong safety Landon Collins and shutdown corner Janoris Jenkins are studs, but outside corner Eli Apple needs to assert himself, Curtis Riley needs to grab ahold of the free safety spot that the Giants seem to want him to win, and either Donte Deayon needs to get healthy or someone has to step up and become a reliable slot corner. Not to mention the Giants can’t afford any injuries to D-backs, either, given a lack of depth. Veteran journeyman B.W. Webb is their best bet, and it would be nice to see undrafted rookie Grant Haley step forward to grab ahold of a key role, too. Haley could be that man in the slot, for example, but he needs to start making more plays, and fast.
