1. QB Daniel Jones

One of the biggest storylines this past offseason and this season has been the Giants' starting quarterback, Danny Dimes. Last season, Jones led Big Blue to a 9-6-1 record and their first playoff appearance since 2016, leading the 26-year-old QB to receive a four-year, $160 million contract extension with the Giants.

This season, DJ has struggled tremendously, which has left many fans worried about the decision to extend their franchise quarterback. Jones has thrown for 884 yards, two touchdowns, and six interceptions through five games. He suffered a neck injury in Week 5 against the Dolphins, which has kept the veteran quarterback sidelined for the Giants' last two games.

The G-Men have turned to their backup QB Taylor, who is in his 13th professional season and second with the Giants. The veteran is 1-1 as a starter this campaign, losing to his former team, the Buffalo Bills, 14-9 and recently defeating the Commanders 14-7 at MetLife Stadium. While Tyrod has given the Giants some hope the last two weeks, Big Blue fans look forward to seeing their starter return to the lineup.

While Jones has said he feels much better speaking with the media after practices, he is yet to be cleared for contact. While Jones hasn't been ruled out for Week 8, all signs are pointing to Taylor making his third consecutive start.
