Daniel Jones’ Best Throw of the Day
Situation: 2nd & 9 from the WFT 16-yard line, with the NY giants up 13-3, with 2:12 remaining in the 2nd quarter.
Jones and the offense gave the Giants a nice, much-needed first-half lead this Sunday. NY started the game with an early Wayne Gallman one-yard touchdown, coming off a short field thanks to a WFT muffed punt.
The Giants struggled to finish some drives but they managed two more field goals before their last drive of the half.
Up 13-3, Jones led the offense on a 10-play scoring drive. The drive ended with a gorgeous throw to Evan Engram for a 16-yard touchdown. Engram had to come down with this pass after a wide-open drop right in his hands earlier in the game.
Engram’s drop issues has become a major and legitimate issue but it all came together for #88 on this key play. Engram fought off press coverage from the defender and created enough separation for a possible window for Jones to hit Engram in the endzone.
Jones saw his talented tight end get open immediately, he made Engram his first read, and delivered a pefect touchdown strike. Danny Dimes threw the ball right where only Engram could reel it in and no oncoming defender could make a play.
It was a great pass and great touch was displayed from Jones. Scoring a touchdown was big for the team to come out and stay ahead with a 17-point 20-3 lead.
Jones and Engram need to become a deadly pairing together. Both players have all the talent needed, they just need to focus both on the mental aspects of their game to play mistake-free football.
If this pairing comes alive, the Giants’ offense should pick up considerably in the second half of the season.
