Facing a 2nd-and-7, the Giants went at Claiborne and completed an 8-yard pass to Hakeem Nicks, enough for the first down and enough to put New York into field goal range.

Tiki Barber used to have a big fumbling problem as well but the Giants were able to turn that around to the point where he became one of the more sure-handed players in the league. Wilson's got plenty of time to get it right.
