NFL ICYMI: Maybe the Giants found a new QB in Daniel Jones

September 23rd, 2019

''Probably the story of the game will be the rookie quarterback,'' New York coach Pat Shurmur said at his news conference, stating the obvious and likely relishing it. Jones, who played in college at Duke, went 23 of 36 for 336 yards and zero interceptions, throwing for a pair of touchdowns and rushing for two more, including the go-ahead score on a 7-yard run on fourth down with 76 seconds left. Until this afternoon, he hadn't played in a regular-season NFL game,'' Shurmur said about Jones.
