It is hard to believe that we are heading towards the start of the NFL Season, and with the schedule now out for every team, fans are now getting excited about what's to come - especially for the New York Giants in the always-competitive NFC East.

For the most part, the quarterbacks will remain the same with the exception of the Washington Commanders drafting reigning Heisman Award winner Jayden Daniels with the No. 2 overall pick. That means this division will have the likes of Daniels, Jalen Hurts, Dak Prescott and of course Daniel Jones, who is coming off an injury-plagued 2023 season where he only played in six games. So, who's the top QB in the division? It's not Jones, we can tell you that much:

4. Daniel Jones

This seems harsh, but it's unfortunately a reality for the Giants and their fans. While he's had his moments during his five seasons playing in New York with most notably winning a playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings in 2022, you have to put a couple of things into perspective about Jones.

First, you have to put Jones' injury history into perspective and how this could be a make-or-break season for him after the Giants signed Drew Lock and were reportedly trying to trade up in the draft to select a quarterback. From knee injuries to neck problems, ankle sprains and more, it has really become a concern, as Jones has only started in every game of the regular season once throughout his career.

The former No. 6 overall pick also still has turnover problems, as he's had 24 fumbles since 2019 and has thrown 40 interceptions since his rookie season. A lot of the turnovers have also cost the Giants a lot of games and when you fumble the football on a consistent basis, you're not expected to win any games. Jones can prove this ranking wrong this season, but until then, he is the worst quarterback in the NFC East.
