With Odell Beckham Jr. hobbled and Rueben Randle sidelined during the final drive of Sunday night's thrilling 30-27 win, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning looked to tight end Larry Donnell to seal the deal. Donnell delivered — he reeled in one of the most impressive catches of the Giants' season and the most impressive catch of his career.

Donnell's 12-yard touchdown catch was his first touchdown since Week 2. He finished Week 5 with six catches on seven targets for 35 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown was also his longest gain of the game.

With tight end Daniel Fells out for the remainder of the season with a staph infection, Donnell has been asked to take on a much larger role in the offense. Donnell has played 124-of-151 offensive snaps since Fells has been placed on injured reserve.
