Jones caps off impressive preseason in style
Daniel Jones had another perfect outing, completing all four passes as a starter in the New York Giants’ final preseason game.
Jones finished off his first NFL preseason the way he started, connecting on every throw he made. It was a brief cameo for Jones, the rookie who has enthralled what not long ago were skeptics wondering why the heck the Giants used the No. 6 pick in the NFL draft to take him.
The best throw from Jones was one he made under pressure, as he hung in the pocket and found Golden Tate on the left sideline for 23 yards. Jones was facing the Patriots’ second-team defense and his series stalled when Paul Perkins was stopped for no gain on third and fourth down on the New England 13-yard line.
“He made some great decisions and you got to love that,’’ Tate said. “He’s a guy that shows up every day, doesn’t say much. He’s quietly becoming a leader, for sure.’’
