Logan Ryan can say he intercepted Tom Brady’s last pass as a Patriot. He’s hoping to catch the next one Brady throws his way.

The former Rutgers star defensive back will be counted on again on Monday night when the Giants welcome in Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Ryan is second on the Giants with 44 tackles after playing every defensive snap for the last five weeks. Few players have a better understanding of what it’s like to face the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

“I feel like he brings the best out of me,” Ryan said. “I know I have to be my best in order to compete with him. I love playing against him because it’s the greatest challenge in football.”

Ryan and Brady spent four years as teammates in New England, but their last encounter was as rivals. It came in the AFC Wild Card game last year when Ryan, then a member of the Tennessee Titans, scooped up a deflected pass with nine seconds left.
