Collins recorded nine tackles (seven solo) across 73 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the 49ers.
Collins had another productive outing Monday, as he now has 71 tackles on the season -- currently tied for 15th highest total in league. He played in 100 percent of the Giants' defensive snaps, as he has done in every game this season.
Collins has led the defense in tackles each of the last five games, but the team's success continued to be limited by a Giants offense that provided the Eagles a short field twice within the first quarter. The 25-year-old should continue to be one of the top IDP options as the team heads to Atlanta for Week 7.
Collins posted a team-high eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.
The Giants' secondary managed, for the most part, to keep Cam Newton in check, and while the defensive back was not responsible for either of the two interceptions, he did manage to lead the team in tackles for the second straight week. With New York boasting a shaky run defense this season that's giving up 124.4 yards per game, Collins should continue to have plenty of chances to rack up tackles on running backs advancing to the second level.
Collins posted six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Cowboys.
Collins finished tied with fellow defensive stars Alec Ogletree and Janoris Jenkins for a team high in tackles, and all three were the only Giants to play every snap on defense. Collins is still considered one of the best safeties in the NFL and is off to a decent start in 2018 with 11 total tackles through the first two weeks.
Collins underwent surgery on his broken forearm in December and had a follow-up procedure in late April, eventually making it back for limited participation in individual drills during OTAs and June minicamp. He doesn't seem to be much danger of missing Week 1, even if the Giants opt for a cautious approach throughout training camp and the preseason. The fourth-year safety is well established as an elite IDP, averaging 7.3 tackles per game for his career.
