A stat correction from Sunday’s New York Giants victory over the Washington Redskins allowed Markus Golden to earn a $1 million bonus.

Golden received the early Christmas gift Tuesday when he was informed that a half sack of Dwayne Haskins early in the third quarter was being changed to a full sack.

Golden raced around the left edge on the play and brought down Haskins, whose ankle was being held by linebacker Lorenzo Carter.

The Giants teammates originally shared the sack.

But after further review, which happens on a weekly basis with certain disputed plays, a correction was made.

Golden was credited with the full sack. It gave him 10 this season and triggered the lucrative incentive.
