On September 18, Dane Belton, a rookie safety for the New York Giants and a former top defensive back for the Iowa Hawkeyes, took his first career snap in the National Football League. He made a strong first impression.
Belton made his debut by recovering a fumble that was committed by Chubba Hubbard during the opening kickoff. This gave the Giants possession of the ball at the 22-yard line of the Panthers. The Giants prevailed over the Panthers by a score of 19-16 thanks to a field goal from Graham Gano from 36 yards out, which proved to be the deciding factor in the game.
Belton had a spectacular first performance in his professional career, which began with the recovery of a fumble. In spite of the fact that he is listed on the Giants’ depth chart as the backup for both safety positions, he racked up five solo tackles, which placed him in second place among all Giants.
The rookie defensive back is one of only three safeties that the Giants listed on their 53-man opening day roster, despite breaking his collarbone just seven weeks earlier. Despite this, the Giants classified him as one of their starters.
