Vote For The SB Nation NY Player Of The Week

It's Monday morning, so that means it's time to vote for the SB Nation New York Player of the Week. Last week, Eli Manning took the honors, due to his flawless performance against the Eagles. This week, the New York Yankees split the first two games of the ALDS, the New York Giants won in dramatic, comeback fashion, the New York Jets were pummeled by Baltimore, while the New York Mets finished out their season with a little controversy. Here are the new nominees. Vote now!

↵

Robinson Cano: The Yankee second baseman is one of the best hitters in baseball, and he proved it in Game One of the ALDS. Cano tied a postseason franchise record with six RBIs and hit a grand slam and two doubles, only missing a second home run by an inch. In Game Two, he broke up Max Scherzer's no-hitter, went 1-for-4 with a walk and was all set up to be the hero at the end but he couldn't quite pull it off.

↵

Ivan Nova: Who needs CC Sabathia? Ok, the Yankees do, but Nova pitched like a playoff veteran in his "relief" appearance in the Game One victory. His final line (six and 1/3 innings, two runs, five strikeouts, four walks, four hits) doesn't really tell the whole story of how well he pitched and how crucial it was for him to win that first game.

↵

Hakeem Nicks: The Giants' star receiver had a monster day on Sunday, catching 10 passes, for 162 yards, and scored the winning touchdown on a 29-yard pass, which came seconds after the confusing, almost-boneheaded play by Victor Cruz. Nicks' 24 receptions for the year give him a good head start toward being the second Giant ever to catch 100 passes.

↵

Eli Manning: Making magic in Arizona is nothing new for Manning. After a slow start for the offense, he came through when the team needed him most and ended up having his second consecutive spectacular game (QB rating of 108.4), going 27-for-40 (67.5 percent), throwing for 321 yards with two touchdown passes and, once again, no interceptions.

↵

Joe McKnight: There weren't many highlights for the Jets on Sunday night, but McKnight returned a kickoff 107 yards for a score, which was the longest play in franchise history, besting Brad Smith's kickoff return against the Colts in '09 by one yard. McKnight also got to take a turn on defense, and pressured Joe Flacco, which resulted in David Harris' interception return for a touchdown.

↵

Jose Reyes: Yes, he took the easy way out by removing himself from the game in the first inning last Wednesday, which did not go over so well with just about everybody, but Reyes did end up being the first-ever Met to win a batting championship. In the three games last week, he went 7-for-11, finishing with a .337 average, hit a pair of home runs and a double, drove in four runs and stole two bases.
