2. Daniel Jones will continue to cut down the turnovers

One of Jones' early struggles were his constant turnovers, both with interceptions and fumbling, as both issues made even the supporters of Jones wonder if he would be the long-term guy for the Giants.

In 2022, Jones did a tremendous job working on both, as he had just six fumbles with four lost and five interceptions. A year earlier, Jones had seven interceptions and seven fumbles with two lost. Some thought Jones would be plagued with the issue when he got strip-sacked in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans, but ultimately, it wasn't an issue that lingered on.

On the flip side, Prescott had a league-leading 15 interceptions with four fumbles and three lost. The year before, Prescott had 10 interceptions and 14 fumbles with seven lost. Jones is trending in the right direction as far as keeping the football and not giving it away, as it was a major problem in his first few years in the league.

His rookie year alone saw him fumble the ball 19 times and losing 16 of them with 12 interceptions. You can credit Daboll and Mike Kafka's coaching with Jones, or perhaps it was them telling Jones to get out of the pocket and take off with the ball as opposed to standing there long enough to get hit and fumble.

Whatever they did with Jones, it worked, and the turnovers were dramatically cut down and turned into rushing yards. Given the old saying, "if it's not broken, don't fix it," this has worked well for Jones and it should continue, as he should turn the ball over less and get more yards with his legs.
