The Daniel Jones era began on Sunday for the New York Giants, and it provided something the fan base has been without for the past couple of seasons...excitement. Down 31-25 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the final minutes, Jones executed a perfect drive down field, leading the team to the red zone. On a pivotal fourth-and-five, the former Duke Blue Devil noticed an opening in the defense, and used his wheels to scramble for a seven-yard, go-ahead touchdown.
Now, with a 32-31 lead, the Giants defense did what they do, and surrendered a huge reception to Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans. With four seconds remaining, rookie Matt Gay attempted what looked to be an easy 34-yard field goal attempt. Instead, the kick sailed wide right, giving the Giants their first win of the season.
The Danny Dimes/Danny Wheels era is officially off to a strong start in the New York metropolitan area.
HOW. DID. THAT. JUST. HAPPEN?!
