Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Fortunately Uani 'Unga had another solid performance for the Giants with seven tackles and a forced fumble in New York's 7-27 loss to the Eagles. 'Unga now leads the Giants in tackles, interceptions, and forced fumbles.

Former BYU wide receiver Jordan Leslie received some good news this week and will be joining the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad.
