1. Daniel Jones wasn't good enough for the Giants on Sunday night

Yes, the play of the offensive line was horrible and Jones barely had any time to scan the field. With that said, Jones played terribly and there's no defending the way he looked against the Cowboys. Jones final stats for the game were awful: he went 15-of-28 for 104 yards, no touchdowns and two picks. What happened to the young man who looked so sharp last year?

General manager Joe Schoen took a risk in giving him his $160 million deal, but with the way the QB market is set, he had little choice. NY supporters were hoping that Jones would prove all of his haters wrong and live up to that contract in Week 1. A 275-yard night with 2-3 touchdowns would have been just what the doctor ordered.

Jones' night was highlighted by his turnovers instead of touchdowns, though, which is easy because he never found the end zone. Jones and the Giants will have a fantastic opportunity to bounce back in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. There will be no excuses for the G-Men in that meeting. With the way Week 1 went, a win is desperately needed to provide the fanbase with some hope. It will be on Jones to clean things up and record a huge showing in the first road contest of the year. No more excuses for him.
