New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones threw a pick to Dallas Cowboys cornerback Stephon Gilmore in the second quarter of Sunday’s game. The Giants are currently having a tough time against the Cowboys as they have manhandled the Giants by taking a mammoth lead of 26-0.
Daniel Jones and the Giants made a successful entry into the red zone to start the 2023 season opener versus the Cowboys. Daniel Jones had several outstanding scrambles, while Saquon Barkley delivered some potent runs that were reminiscent of their playoff run the year before, which won Brian Daboll the NFL Coach of the Year title.
Sadly, their early success abruptly changed for the worse. On a crucial 3rd-and-2 close to the goal line, Micah Parsons’ aggressive play forced Andrew Thomas into a false start penalty, moving the line of scrimmage back five yards.
In the 2019 NFL Draft, the Giants selected him with the sixth overall choice after his NCAA football career at Duke. Jones, who is 220 pounds and 6 feet 5 inches tall, is renowned for his impressive combination of mobility and arm strength. He shines as a quarterback with a dual threat, showing skill in both passing and running plays.
In 2019, Jones’ debut season, he accumulated 3,027 throwing yards and threw 22 touchdown passes, showing great promise. He had difficulties in his next two seasons, recording 10 touchdowns and 7 interceptions in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
Jones, a rookie quarterback, is still getting used to the nuances of the NFL game. Although it is clear that he has greatness in him, he still needs to improve his consistency and give ball security more importance. Jones signed a new deal with the Giants in 2022 that would pay him a staggering $40 million every year.
