Daniel Jones report card as NY Giants survive 23-16 over Raiders
Daniel Jones’ Best Moment of the Day: Opening Drive Touchdown
The NY Giants had their best opening drive of the season this week.
Jones was crisp, clean, and efficient up and down the field.
Jones opened the game up with a 9-yard pass to Kyle Rudolph followed by a 1st down pickup by Devontae Booker. It was a sign of complementary, run-oriented offense to come for the drive and much of the game itself.
After Booker’s run came a Jones check-down to Booker for five yards, run to Booker, run to Booker for 1st down.

Jones then ran it himself for another five yards before they finally ripped it downfield.
Jones uncorked a dime to Evan Engram right in his hands in coverage for an impressive 30-yard touchdown pass to give the NY Giants a much-needed 7-0 lead. If the offense can open games up like this more often, they will be in much better positions to win games.
