1. Daniel Jones will need to have a strong showing vs. the Lions defense

Lastly, we of course want to see how quarterback Daniel Jones will fare facing off against Detroit defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn's unit. Just like Goff, countless doubters are ready to try and bring down Danny Dimes whenever they have the chance. People are just waiting for Jones to slip, then they'll race to social media to bash him.

Luckily, Jones is in the middle of an incredible summer and he will be ready to light up the Detroit defense on Tuesday and Wednesday. On top of Waller, new additions Jalin Hyatt and Parris Campbell will help this offense take things to the next level. Jones is already having a ton of fun hitting his new targets in stride. More will be on the way facing off against the Lions defense.

Jones was on fire during training camp and that's a positive sign with the regular season sneaking up on us. Soon enough, Jones will lead the team out onto the MetLife Field turf in hopes of living up to his $160 million extension. The pressure is through the roof, but Jones is calm about things. And for those of you nervous about his play moving forward, pay close attention to him this week.
