Daniel Jones’ debut prompts bold bettor to put $50K on Giants in Week 4

  Daniel Jones’ debut prompts bold bettor to put $50K on Giants in Week 4 Danny Dimes’ debut convinced one emboldened bettor to plop down 50 Gs on the Giants in Week 4. The SouthPoint Casino Sportsbook in Las Vegas took a whopping $50,000 bet on Friday for the Giants to beat visiting Washington and cover as three-point favorites on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro confirmed on Saturday to the Daily News that a gentleman came in and made the big-time bet on Big Blue. At -110 odds, the gamble would win the bold bettor $45,454.55.Vaccaro saw one obvious reason for such a large bet coming in on the Giants: Eli Manning’s benching for Jones, and the resulting 32 points in the rookie QB’s debut win at Tampa.

But the Giants were absolutely convinced that if they wanted Jones , they couldn't wait that long. What should be made out of Giants ' Saquon Barkley returning to practice so soon? But he bounced back each time, never looked rattled, and made more than enough plays to help the Giants beat the And that, just as much as anything rookie quarterback Daniel Jones did, is why the Giants ended

When it comes to Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones , don’t pay too much attention to the numbers. His stats lie. In three starts, Jones is averaging just He will be the best quarterback the Patriots have faced yet — yes, better than an injured and uninterested Ben Roethlisberger in Week 1.

In Tom Brady’s fifth career start, he threw four interceptions against the Denver Broncos, had only 202 yards passing and the Patriots lost 31-20. And that was with a team that would go on to win a Super Bowl.

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones’ rookie season wasn’t going to be perfect. He certainly wasn’t perfect on Thursday night. The Patriots seemed to confuse him, causing him to hold the ball too long at times and make some bad reads that were intercepted. Despite multiple key injuries on offense, New York kept the game close into the fourth quarter and might have had a chance at a massive upset had the offense played better. Instead, the Patriots and their No. 1 ranked defense did enough for a 35-14 win that wasn’t as dominant as the score would indicate. Either way, they improved to 6-0. The Giants are 2-4.

To make matters worse, his backup might be out, too.Barkley suffered a high-ankle sprain during Week 3, a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and was expected to miss at least six to eight weeks.

Young quarterbacks, even ones who turn out to be as great as Brady, are going to have rough games. As Bill Belichick has done to many other rookie quarterbacks, he and the Patriots gave Jones a lesson he can take with him in his development.

Daniel Jones has one dime

Even in a loss, on a night he didn’t play well, Jones had the type of throw that shows why Giants fans should be excited about his future.

In the second quarter, Jones lofted one up to Golden Tate. Tate was covered very well by Jonathan Jones, but Daniel Jones’ pass was even better than the coverage. He put it where it had to be, and even though the coverage was so good that the ball was slightly tipped, Tate eventually hauled it in and ran for a 64-yard touchdown.

TAMPA, Fla. — The first prominent high note in the Daniel Jones era of Giants football was a daring 7-yard touchdown scamper in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jones wasn’t great on Thursday night. Far from it. The throw to Tate was one of his few highlights. But he was a rookie on a short week in a road game against the NFL’s No. 1 ranked defense. He was playing without top two running backs Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman, top receiver Sterling Shepard and tight end Evan Engram. It’s hard to be too critical of his mistakes. Late in the game Jones threw a perfect pass to tightly-covered rookie Darius Slayton down the sideline, right over Pro Bowl cornerback Stephon Gilmore. But the veteran was able to reach up and knock the ball away before the rookie could secure the catch. There’s not much Jones can do about that. Jones finished 15-of-31 for 161 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was criticized relentlessly for taking Jones with the sixth overall pick in April. Jones looked very good in the preseason, led a great comeback win in his first start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and has had good moments and bad since then. Most rookie quarterbacks are inconsistent, especially ones on bad teams. Even though Jones’ stat line was awful on Thursday he had some good excuses, and the Giants shouldn’t be any less excited about what’s to come in the future.

The Giants continue to rave about rookie quarterback Daniel Jones ' maturation this summer, and praise Jones ' first and only interception of camp earlier this week came on a throw that should have come out a Here's why Jones was upset, in his own words. “Well, I think just the situation," he said.

The Giants began preparing for life after Eli Manning by selecting Duke's Daniel Jones with the sixth pick, but GM Dave Gettleman Bill Barnwell explains why Giants draftee and Eli Manning heir apparent Daniel Jones does not project to be an above-average NFL QB . He is just perfect for us.

Giants stayed in the game vs. New England

The Giants hung in the game a lot longer than expected, but not because of Jones and the offense. The defense played well. Markus Golden scored on a long fumble return for a score after a Lorenzo Carter strip sack. New England’s offense didn’t hit many big plays and struggled to finish drives in the second half until the Giants defense was gassed from being on the field too long. With less than nine minutes to go the Giants had the ball trailing 21-14. A fumble by third-string running back Jon Hilliman was scooped up by Kyle Van Noy and returned for a touchdown. That put the game away.

The Patriots offense didn’t play well. Tom Brady missed some throws that he generally didn’t miss in his 30s. At 42, he’s going to miss a few. A blocked punt touchdown in the first half and a fumble return touchdown in the second half made the night easier than it should have been for the Patriots. The Giants weren’t expected to win but can’t be upset with the effort.

On a different night in the future, with a better or at least more healthy team around him, Jones might play well enough to close that gap. He’s learning. The Patriots were just too tough for him, at this point.

Giants will not go back to Eli Manning after Daniel Jones’ struggles .
Jones has thrown eight interceptions and has lost two fumbles in his past four starts.

The team is going nowhere fast.
