D for Dimes!
If it’s starting to sound repetitive, that’s because it is. Jones continues his streak of turnovers in every game this season. He overthrew receivers who had steps on their defenders downfield, and many of his passes were batted down at the line. The ball always seems a bit too high or too low or too outside, even when a receiver brings it in. He never seems to hear the rush when it’s coming, and he looks completely overwhelmed when it gets to him. He was sacked three times, one of which took the Giants out of field goal range.
Jones’ interception after Dion Lewis returned the ball 40+ yards on the second half kickoff gave away all the momentum the Giants built up in the first half. And after his second interception of the game, ESPN put up a graphic comparing him to Ryan Leaf. That alone should be grounds for failure.
But Jones did break JPP’s ankles on a play action bootleg in the second quarter. And he lead the team downfield on what was nearly a game winning drive. The game should have never came down to a missed defensive pass interference call. Jones’ turnovers continue to be the constant on why the Giants lose games.
