As 'X' factor, Giants WR Hakeem Nicks' unique skills draw extra attention

All of Nicks’ skills have led defenses to roll coverage his way or put a safety on his side of the field.

Manningham’s touchdowns against the Niners and Dolphins on fade routes were against single coverage while Nicks was facing a double-team on the opposite side of the field. (Newark Star-Ledger)
