That’s how you bounce back! With the NY Giants ticked off following the Monday Night Football loss vs. the Dallas Cowboys, this team was hoping get back on the right track in a big way at MetLife Stadium against the Chicago Bears. Well, they did just that.
Thanks to strong play on both sides of the ball, the G-Men were able to record a 20-12 victory over Justin Fields and Co. Things got worrisome late, as Daniel Jones went down with his ankle injury and Tyrod Taylor took a massive shot, forcing Jones back into action before Brian Daboll was hoping. Despite that adversity, NY indeed recorded a win and there were plenty of positives to discuss.
5. Daniel Jones put on a show
We’re going to have to start calling him Danny Wheels instead of Danny Dimes. In the victory, Jones made big plays with his arm and legs. The highlight of his day no question had to be the two rushing touchdowns that he was able to record in the first half for New York.
Offensive coordinator Mike Kafka did a great job of keeping the Chicago defense guessing, as the play-action surely had them confused up front. This opened the door for Jones to get things done with his wheels, as the fans at MetLife surely enjoyed seeing him make his way to the end zone not once, but twice.
This was a needed performance from Jones. He’s always going to have haters calling him out for poor play, but he did little wrong on Sunday against the Bears. Despite the loss in Week 3, Jones also played well against the Dallas Cowboys. Now, he’s surely got confidence leading up to the Week 5 matchup with the Green Bay Packers. We’ll keep an eye on his ankle this next week in practice, but this doesn’t appear to be a serious injury.
