EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – For the fourth consecutive preseason game, former Newberry College star Corey Washington caught a fourth quarter touchdown for the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Friday night.

Washington’s previous three touchdowns were game-winners for the Giants, but Friday’s was “only” the one to put the G-Men’s 35-24 win over the Jets out of reach.

The North Charleston native had two receptions for 36 yards in Friday’s game, including the 31-yard touchdown catch to seal the victory.

Washington’s preseason totals now stand at nine catches for 152 yards and a NFL-leading four touchdowns.

For the third straight week, “Corey Washington” was trending on Twitter in New York City – this time also trending as “Nassib to Washington.”
