VIDEO: Victor Cruz Smiles At Idea Of Facing Patriots' Julian Edelman

The New England Patriots defense was the target of plenty of criticism this year as they finished the regular season ranked 31st in yards allowed. One of those guys in the secondary is Julian Edelman, a receiver who also plays defensive back.

A receiver also playing defensive back has to bring a smile to the New York Giants receivers, particularly Victor Cruz, who could match up with Edelman. In the video below, NFL Network's Deion Sanders asks Giants receiver Victor Cruz about facing Edelman and his eyes quickly light up.


Cruz's teammate said something similar earlier this week so you can bet that Edelman and the Patriots are aware of it, maybe even using it as bulletin board material.

Check out our look at the key matchup of the Giants receivers vs. the Patriots secondary.
