This Daniel Jones stat should silence his haters once and for all

How about the G-Men? The NY Giants are 5-1 on the season and in four of those games, quarterback Daniel Jones has led a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter. No other quarterback has been able to match Danny Dimes there.

The Jones stats thus far in 2022 might not overwhelm you at face value but don’t be fooled, Jones is playing excellent football. The Giants are getting more and more comfortable with their new personnel. The Giants have now won three games this season despite trailing by 10 or more points. Jones has taken a page out of his mentor Eli Manning’s playbook with his clutch late-game play.

Jones beat the last two NFL MVPs in Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson. It’s the first time any quarterback has done this since 2016. Jones didn’t just beat them – he outplayed them. He’s using both his arms and his legs to do it. He’s eliminated turnovers from his game and he’s seeing the field like never before. This is great news for Brian Daboll and Co.

Giants QB Daniel Jones keeps silencing his haters this season

After Sunday’s 24-20 win, Jones made it three straight games without an interception as well. His overall numbers improved to five passing touchdowns, just two interceptions and 1,021 passing yards. Although it wasn’t a factor in Week 6, his ground game performances have been a big factor as well. Jones has 236 rushing yards and two touchdowns to his name. Jones has done this with a injured wide receiver room.

The Giants have to love what they are seeing so far from Jones. It’s been a big season for him, as he’s playing without a contract for next season. Daboll has given him high praise the last few weeks. Jones is doing his part to try and  show the NY Giants that he can be the franchise quarterback for the long haul.

The G-Men have upcoming games against the Jaguars, Seahawks, Texans and Lions. It will be important for the Giants to keep their foot on the gas and have a strong stretch over those weaker opponents. They will lean on Danny Dimes to keep things moving in the right direction offensively. Jones has been strong in recent games and more of the same should be on the way.
