David Tyree (85) runs a post pattern, Steve Smith (12) a short corner, Brandon Jacobs (27) a swing, Amani Toomer (81) and Plaxico Burress (17) in-routes. Eli Manning (10) sees Patriots FS James Sanders (36) sitting on Smith's route and realizes Tyree should be open to the post. When Tyree sees Manning getting swamped by the pass rush, he drifts back upfield and toward the middle. SS Rodney Harrison (37) reacts from the opposite side but fails to prevent Tyree from making the reception.
