Darius Slayton’s leaping catch sets up Giants touchdown

DALLAS — The New York Giants took a 10-7 lead early in the second quarter thanks to an acrobatic jump grab by wide receiver Darius Slayton at AT&T Stadium.

Quarterback Daniel Jones launched a pass 52.5 yards down the right touchline, according to NextGen Stats data. Slayton jumped right over cornerback Anthony Brown in second and fourth near midfield and made a spectacular 44-yard catch at the Dallas 1-yard line.

Two plays after Slayton’s catch, running back Saquon Barkley rumbled into the middle and scored a 1-yard. It gave the Giants a three-point lead at 9:28 of the second quarter.

Slayton’s catch was the Giants’ first completion of 40+ air yards this season, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. Their first such attempt came in the first quarter when Jones and Slayton failed on the right touchline in a similar play. The Cowboys didn’t allow a 20-yard pass in last week’s 40-3 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
