MVP: QB Daniel Jones
Jones looked as good as he’s looked in his first two seasons. But what really set him up to be this week’s MVP is what he didn’t do, turn the ball over.
For the first time in his young career, Daniel Jones was able to string together two consecutive starts without a turnover. It’s no secret that turnovers are his biggest weakness. But Jones showed he can improve. He was noticeably protecting the ball more in this game than in any other, especially when the pocket collapsed or when he ran.
And run he did! His rushing ability is his best asset, and he flashed it throughout this game. He started the game with a 34-yard rushing touchdown, and would go on to lead the team in rushing yards with 64. He also got a little redemption with that rushing touchdown, since in Week 7 against the Eagles he tripped before he could score.
Jones finished the day 21/28 for 244 yards and a rating of 100.9. He made some key throws on a windy game — no easy feat. But what really made him this week’s MVP was his ability to hold onto the ball.
He snapped the Eagles four-year win streak over the Giants, adding them to his list of defeated teams, which now stands at three. Without Jones playing as good as he did, and as mistake free as he did, the Giants don’t win this game. He is well deserving of this week’s MVP.
