WATCH: Every Boston Scott aka “The Giants Killer” touchdown against New York
Like the classic tale of David and Goliath, Boston Scott is a prime example of a real-life underdog story. Drafted in the sixth round of the 2018 draft out of Louisiana Tech by New Orleans, Scott spent his early years being waived and then signed to the Eagles practice squad.
Despite his relatively small size at 5-foot-6 and 203 pounds, he has earned the nickname “The Giants Killer” for his historic and memorable performances against New York. So far in his career, 11 of his total 17 touchdowns have come against the GMen. Scott’s tenacity and determination on the field make him a fan favorite, proving that size doesn’t always determine success.

Giants’ first-year defensive coordinator Wink Martindale made a great attempt to mush Boston Scott and his automatic touchdown scores against New York.
Wink Martindale on Boston Scott
If it predates my time here, I can’t answer that,” said Martindale. “He’s a good running back. They’ve got a stable of good running backs. I can’t answer it…just because he scored, I don’t think he’s a Giant killer.
However, the “The Giants Killer” streak continues and will live on in Philadelphia sports lore forever.
