2. Tyrod Taylor had more success making plays downfield than Daniel Jones

One of the biggest challenges for the Giants' offense this season has been their ability to drive down the field and score. Through six weeks, the G-Men are averaging 11.8 points per game, 71 combined points. There are several people you can point the finger at for these struggles, but regardless, as a collective, the offense has to be better at making plays. 

Giants QB2 Taylor showed Daboll and the coaching staff some optimism on Sunday night against Buffalo. Tyrod threw for 200 yards and had a 66.7 percent completion rate against his former team. Despite no touchdowns against the Bills, the veteran backup looked great and was crucial in helping the Giants move the chains to keep it a close and competitive game.   

Taylor was named the starting quarterback after Danny Dimes suffered a neck injury during Week 5. The injury could Danny Dimes out for Sunday, but Coach Dabes hasn't ruled him out yet. Jones was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Still, if he cannot go on Sunday against the Commanders, Taylor will get the nod for his second consecutive start, as the Giants look to snap a four-game losing streak.
