New York Giants Improve To 6-1
The New York Giants never make it easy on themselves, but they always find a way to get things done. In the final seconds of the game, Trevor Lawrence completed a pass to Christian Kirk to the 1-yard line but New York's defenders were able to wrap him up as time expired. The Giants survived and won over the Jaguars 23-17.
New York improved to 6-1 on the season and they also had to overcome some horrendous officiating in this football game as well. The Giants are being well coached in all three phases week in and week out.
With 5:31 remaining in regulation time, Daniel Jones scored the game-winning 1-yard rushing touchdown. He and Saquon Barkley were able to run it at will all day long against Jacksonville.
Daniel Jones completed 19-of-30 passes for 202 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for 107 yards on 11 carries and one touchdown.
Jones's 32-yard touchdown pass to Darius Slayton came on the opening drive of the football game. Slayton caught six passes for 58 yards receiving and one touchdown in this football game. He and Wan'Dale Robinson were not dropping passes and there were other drops as well in this football game.
Saquon Barkley rushed for 110 yards on 24 carries. He also caught four passes for 25 yards receiving.
They lack talent but they are playing hard under head coach Brian Daboll. Mike Kafka, the New York Giants offensive coordinator continues to call games brilliantly week in and week out. Defensive coordinator Wink Martindale has a defense that has a bend but doesn't break mentality.
General manager Joe Schoen has to be pleased with what he is seeing from the New York Giants, but despite the success so far this season, he is still envisioning the long-term future for this football team.
Key injuries for the New York Giants: Evan Neal (knee) and Daniel Bellinger (eye). Both were carted off the field and didn't return. Neal has an MCL injury and it appears as if they avoided major injury. Bellinger was bleeding and had to be taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.
The New York Giants trail the Philadelphia Eagles (6-0) in the NFC East Standings by a half-game.
