What else is there to say about Sunday other than it's a must-win game for the NY Giants. There are no more excuses for this team and Brian Daboll, as Big Blue has a very winnable game coming up against the Commanders. But, will Daniel Jones be out on the field for this one?

Jones missed the Week 6 loss to the Buffalo Bills due to a neck injury and he's been a limited participant in practice in recent days. On Friday, the Giants listed Jones as questionable to suit up at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. It remains up in the air if he'll play or not.

Jones has said that he wants to play and that he's feeling better, but the last thing Daboll wants to do is rush him back too quick to make things worse. Jones took a HARD hit against the Dolphins in Week 5, with his head snapping back in a way that made plenty of people gasp.

Now, Jones is improving by the day, but he's yet to be cleared for contact. With this being the case, it feels like a bit of a long shot that he'll be taking the field in the upcoming NFC East battle vs. Washington and its stingy pass-rush.

Should Jones be forced to sit out his second consecutive contest, veteran signal-caller Tyrod Taylor will get the start. Taylor got the nod last Sunday night against Buffalo, tossing for 200 yards and delivering with some big-time plays late in the action.

Taylor had the Giants one play away from pulling off the biggest of the year. Coach Dabes is confident in Taylor's abilities, which should give him confidence going into the Washington showdown. We could end up seeing Taylor start, but you never know, Danny Dimes could be ready to roll as well.
