Giants’ Jenkins had Bryant’s number in 2016


  • Dallas’ Dez Bryant (84.8 season grade, No. 11 WR) and the Giants’ Janoris Jenkins (88.4 season grade, No. 8 CB) were both top-ranked starters at their position in 2016.
  • Jenkins’ dominant Week 14 performance against Dallas earned him the fourth-highest coverage grade of any CB during the 2016 season.
  • Bryant’s combined stats against the Giants in 2016: 2 catches, 18 yards, 1 lost fumble. Bryant’s Week 14 performance was his lowest-graded of the season.
  • With Jenkins in coverage, Bryant saw 1 target in Week 1 and 6 targets in Week 14. The only catch from all 7 targets was subsequently stripped by Jenkins, resulting in a turnover.
  • In fact, two of Bryant’s Week 14 targets were intercepted, one by Jenkins and one by Leon Hall, with Jenkins also in coverage.

    Any reason why this particular match is being highlighted above any other match up in the NFL?

      Sounds like a hater or a cowboys fan. Its just showing a second team all pro CB’s dominance against the games best. Respect it. He played good games against AJ Green, Antonio Brown, Aaron Rodgers etc.
