4 bold predictions for the NY Giants vs. Eagles matchup in Week 14
3. Daniel ‘Vanilla Vick’ Jones outrushes Jalen Hurts
Both quarterbacks bring their rushing abilities into Sunday’s NFC East rivalry game, but Daniel Jones will outrush Jalen Hurts when it comes down to it.
On the season thus far, Hurts has rushed for 609 yards and five touchdowns, while Jones has gained 522 yards and four touchdowns using his legs. Hurts may have the better offensive line and wide receivers who can spread the field, but Jones will have to get the job done with his legs if the Giants are to find victory.
Whether it’s by design or necessity, it’ll be the case come Sunday. Jones will be running a lot, and it’ll show on the stat sheet. Look for him to have a big game on the ground, which will prove to be crucial for offensive coordinator Mike Kafka. He needs to put Jones and Saquon Barkley in the best position to be explosive. Oh, and speaking of Barkley…
