Daniel Jones showed NY Giants fans yesterday he is capable of not making the same mistakes over and over. Even better, they were no turnovers as NY won and moved to 2-7.
NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones finally put together the perfect recipe: No turnovers and going home with a massive win on the road. It was never easy for the NY Giants but they survived and escaped the Washington Football Team by a score of 23-20.
The Giants saw firsthand how turnovers played a major role in this game. The Giants’ defense forced a turnover on their first snap on the field, leading to a crazy scrum on the field that NY recovered. From there, Washington went on to turn the ball over four more times Sunday.
For once, it was the Giants that forced two late turnovers in the game. Jabrill Peppers and Logan Ryan made the two key plays to put the game away and let Danny Dimes and the offense come out in victory formation and take the game-winning kneel downs to close it out.
Jones finished the day 23-of-34 with 212 passing yards, good for a season high completion percentage of 67.65%. Jones also linked up with Austin Mack for a team-high 50 yard completion.
Most importantly, Jones finished the game with two touchdown passes and zero interceptions. The zero interceptions is a massive win for Jones’ development. Jones was sacked five times and still had two fumbles but both were recovered by Big Blue. He fought though adversity and played mistake-free ball when it mattered most.
The team’s last snap on offense before their game-ending kneel downs could have been catastrophic as Jones got rocked into the turf on an incoming blitz he never saw from his blindside. Daniel held onto the ball for dear life and may have saved the game for the entire team.
