Daniel Jones’ Worst Moment of the Day
Daniel Jones and the New York offense started to click again as they marched down the field on their first drive of the second half. Jones hooked up with Engram again for a huge play for 44 yards. Gallman was churning yards and cutting through the Bengals’ struggling defense before Jones had a keeper that changed the entire game.
On 1st & 10 from the Cincinnati 27-yard line, Jones kept the ball himself and took off running for 7 yards. After taking an awkward tumble forwards, Jones appeared to injury his hamstring after the tackle. Jones got up and was clearly limping and holding his right upper leg area.
Jones stayed in for two plays, handing the ball off to Gallman for a gain of 2 before throwing it to Wayne for the first on 3rd and 1. On that throw, Jones noticeably threw with zero lower body movement and had no explosion or torque behind his throw.
Jones then went down and took himself out of the game. He was clearly hobbling and was in much pain while making the throw with just enough zip to thread the needle to Gallman.
He sat out the rest of the drive as it stalled once Colt McCoy entered the game. Big Blue’s field goal regained them the lead 13-10.
The next drive, Jones kicked McCoy off the field in a questionable move at best. After one more throw, it was painfully obvious that Daniel’s leg was in too much pain and he would not be able to carry on the rest of the day.
