Through 10 games, Jones might not have taken the significant leap forward the Giants had hoped in his second season, but he’s made great strides the past two weeks.
Completing 63.5 percent of his passes for 2,122 yards and eight touchdowns, Jones has had time flashed moments of tantalizing brilliance, but he’s also already tossed nine interceptions. Jones does deserve credit, though, for playing consecutive turnover free games and flawlessly executing the Giants’ zone-read concepts, while leading the team with 384 rushing yards.
Finding a way to walk the tightrope between maximizing his aggressiveness and getting him to consistently make sounder decisions about not putting the ball in harm’s way will be critical both down the stretch and in his development. Grade: B+
By all accounts, McCoy has done a nice job serving as a mentor to Daniel Jones and running the scout-team offense, which can’t be undervalued in terms of the Giants’ improvement on defense in recent weeks. McCoy hasn’t played a snap all season, but he’s been everything the Giants could ask for as a veteran backup. Grade: B
