Daniel Jones plays a turnover free game … for the first time this season

Daniel Jones has a turnover problem. You might have heard.

Through four games, Jones has already tossed five interceptions and lost two fumbles. He’s on pace for 28 turnovers.

However, this feels like the week that Jones puts it all together and holds onto the ball.

Jones’ back-breaking interception along the sideline that dashed the Giants’ comeback hopes in the waning moments of last Sunday’s loss aside, the second-year signal caller played a much cleaner game against the Rams.

Given that protecting the football is a point of emphasis for Jones, and the Cowboys have a pitiful -7 turnover ratio entering Week 5, this feels like the game that Jones doesn’t throw an interception or lose a fumble.

The biggest question, though, is whether it will matter in the final score.

Until the Giants prove that they are able to put up the kind of points that the high-flying offenses around the league are, and the defense can generate consistent pressure on the quarterback, it’s difficult to predict this team to beat anyone on their schedule.

Final score prediction: Dallas Cowboys 29, Giants 23
