5 plays that defined the NY Giants epic 2022 season
4. Daniel Jones’ 10-yard touchdown to put the Colts away
While this may not be a game-winning play, or anything insane, it was the one that not only sent New York to the playoffs, but also likely cemented Daniel Jones’ status as the QB of the future for this team.
Not only was this arguably the best game of Jones’ career, but it was his most important, as a win against Indianapolis in Week 17 meant the Giants were playoff-bound. As we all know now, Jones stepped up in the biggest way and delivered when it mattered most in the regular season.
We have seen so many plays like this where Jones has an opponent heading towards him at the goal line, and per usual, Jones led forward, took the contact, and got the touchdown to put the finishing touches on this game.
You can say what you want about Jones, but one thing is certain: he is one of the toughest QBs currently in the NFL. Game after game we see Jones put his body on the line for this team while not even thinking twice about it. It really speaks levels about how much he cares about Big Blue.
