Evan Engram’s First TD Ends In Costly Penalty

Touchdown good, celebration bad

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Rookies will give, and take away. Evan Engram’s first NFL touchdown, the Giants first touchdown of 2017, was an 18-yard beauty.

The crotch grab part of his celebration, though, drew a flag. Let that be a lesson — relaxed rules or not, there are some things you still can’t do in celebrations. That, combined with rookie Aldrick Rosas putting the kickoff out of bounds, put the ball at the Giants’ 45-yard line.

That touchdown, though, was beautiful. An 18-yard pass off play action with Engram flying down the seam uncontested. That Giants fans want more of. Crotch grabs? Nope.
