After his not-so-warm reception on draft night, it appears Daniel Jones is out to silence the doubters.
The New York Giants rookie quarterback opened his NFL career with a perfect touchdown drive against the New York Jets. Jones found Bennie Fowler on a twelve-yard touchdown pass to give the Giants an early lead.
Jones went 5 for 5 passing on his first drive with 67 yards. Jones entered the game after Eli Manning played one series, completing his only pass attempt.
Jones got his feet wet with a quick pass to Cody Latimer for five yards on the opening play of the drive. He would hook up with Latimer again three plays later for a 31-yard strike down the sideline.
In between Latimer receptions, Golden Tate made his first catch in a Giants’ uniform, an 11-yard catch short left.
Fowler made the last two catches of the drive, an 8-yard snag on a 3rd & 7 followed immediately by the touchdown. Both catches came on out-routes to the right side.
