The two offseason acquisitions grabbed a pair of interceptions for the secondary on Tuesday. Thurmond, a former Seattle Seahawk, picked off Eli Manning’s pass intended for tight end Daniel Fells, taking it the other way for a would-be pick-six. That came after Bowman, a former Chicago Bear, notched one of his own on a nice play down the sideline. It was a good back-and-forth day between offensive and defensive playmakers.

>> FIVE THINGS WE LEARNED AT PRACTICE

LB Devon Kennard
The rookie out of USC usually stands out because of his physical play. And while the pads were in fact on during Tuesday’s practice at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center, Kennard showed what he can do in coverage. The linebacker tracked a pass over the middle from Manning in 7-on-7 drills, knocking it up to himself for an interception. It was the first of three picks on the day for the defense.

WR Corey Washington
The preseason hero is leading a strong push for the front office to keep six wide receivers. Washington and fellow receivers like Marcus Harris and Julian Talley continue to make plays, doing so again on Tuesday. Washington caught a deep, over-the-shoulder touchdown from Curtis Painter; Harris looked impressive in 1-on-1 drills; and Talley made a nice sideline grab from Ryan Nassib. “Definitely, we’re all making plays,” Harris said after practice. “[Washington is] a big guy. I’m a former quarterback, I’m going to throw it over to a 6-4 receiver myself.”
