1. A Daniel Jones masterclass in the biggest game of his career
In the most important season of his young career, Jones enters Week 15 playing in what is undoubtedly the biggest matchup he has seen in the NFL. Considering how strong Jones was when Kafka let him throw the ball in Week 13, we have no doubts Jones is ready to put the Giants on his back and lead them to victory.
In the aforementioned Week 13 matchup, Jones completed 25 of his 31 pass attempts for 200 yards and one TD in addition to running the ball 12 times for 71 yards. Jones gave it his all this game, but it’s just unfortunate that Kafka stopped letting him throw once the Giants took the lead.
Despite having almost nothing around him all season, Jones has proven time and time again that he can get the job done. With how poor the Giants offensive line has performed in recent weeks, Kafka and Jones must both find a way to dominate through the air. Whether it’s taking more deep shots to Darius Slayton, or running a more controlled, slow-paced drive in which the team makes its way down the field and chews the clock, something must change from what we’ve seen in recent weeks.
Regardless of how the Giants decide to go about this game offensively, we know Jones will be ready to cook the Commanders like he usually does. The only thing holding him back is that nasty 0-9 record in primetime games. Let’s hope he gets that first primetime win this Sunday.
