Don’t let all the Kenny Golladay drama distract you from the fact that the NY Giants are 7-2 on the year and quarterback Daniel Jones quietly had a solid showing in Week 10. The man known as Danny Dimes finished the contest throwing for 197 yards and touchdowns to Lawrence Cager and Darius Slayton.

That TD to Slayton was a 54-yarder, but it looked like nothing was ever going to materialize. On the play, Jones had heavy pressure in his face, but he was able to get the ball off at the last second. Then, Slayton did the rest, recording easily the most exciting score of the year for this team.

That was a money play from Jones, and an even better finish by Slayton. This play had sack written all over it, but Jones managed to get the ball out in time. Then Slayton not only hauled it in, but also put his fantastic wheels on display for everyone at MetLife Stadium to enjoy. Also, a quick shout out to tight end Tanner Hudson – he delivered a key block allowing Slayton to get free.

This is what the Giants need to see from Jones moving forward. In the past, it’d be easy to assume he would have either gone down too early, or thrown a desperation ball that would have been intercepted.

Not this time, as Jones created some magic for his team, and Slayton showcased the kind of skill and talent you’d expect to see from a No. 1 wide receiver. Seeing Slayton and Jones build chemistry is great to see too. More positives from these two should be coming against the Detroit Lions in Week 11 as well. MetLife will once again be electric for that matchup.
