The NY Giants again couldn’t get it done on primetime TV, and spoiled what might be Daniel Jones’ strongest performance to date, against the Washington Football Team.
The NY Giants are continuously dancing to the same song.
Thursday night, that tune was a disastrous collapse amid a 30-29 loss to the Washington Football Team.
Daniel Jones did his best tonight in a losing effort. Jones led numerous scoring drives, along with some clear missed opportunities. The Giants‘ offense as a whole was much better than it was in Week 1 but still left too many points on the board.
The Giants came up with a massive turnover when they needed it most. James Bradberry stepped in the way for a massive interception with just over 2 minutes to play.
Jones finished the game with 22 completions for 249 yards and a touchdown. He electrified the game with his legs and the incorporation of RPOs opened up the offense significantly. Jones finished with 9 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown. It was an exciting performance that was most importantly, a turnover-free game for the Giants’ quarterback.
The Giants are going to go as far as Daniel Jones will take them. His career is depending on this season and the margin for error has become far too short.
Here is a look at Daniel Jones’ Performance in the NY Giants Week 2 loss
Daniel Jones’ Best Moments of the Day
Daniel Jones had a lot of really positive plays in Thursday’s game. The NY Giants scored on four consecutive drives spanning both halves.
The Giants scored first off a nicely designed Jones keeper. The 4-yard scamper was Jones’ second rushing touchdown.
Daniel Jones’ best moment of the day was tough to decide. The refs took his 58-yard rushing touchdown off the board with a very suspect holding call on C.J. Board. To make matters worse, Darius Slayton dropped a potentially game-ending touchdown on a deep wide-open route. The ball just went off his hands which were reminiscent of Evan Engram’s drop to the Eagles last season on Thursday Night Football.
However, Jones’ shining moment came in the 3rd quarter. Jones orchestrated a beautiful drive that he capped off with a 33-yard touchdown strike. to Slayton. It was a perfect pass that further highlights the need for the Giants to go deep more often in their offense.
