New York Giants rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux has made a big impact for his team in recent weeks and the strong play continued against the Indianapolis Colts.
The young pass-rusher had four tackles, one sack and two tackles for a loss against Colts quarterback Nick Foles in the first half of their game. New York took a 24-3 halftime lead.

But it was a sack by Foles late on the Colts’ final drive of the first half that raised eyebrows. Thibodeaux came to Foles for his fourth sack of the season and celebrated by making snow angels on the dry turf of MetLife Stadium. Next to Thibodeaux’s snow angels was Foles, who was in pain.
Foles seemed to writhe in pain as the pass-rusher celebrated next to him. It wasn’t clear if Thibodeaux knew Foles was injured on the play, but the optics didn’t look great and the NFL world that watched the game had their say on the move on social media.

The Giants came into the game needing a win to make the playoffs for the first time since the 2016 season.
