Three Takeaways from the New York Giants Victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars

By

 

The New York Giants have been accustomed to playing close games this season and their win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday is no exception. The Giants were literally inches away from suffering a gut wrenching loss but non the less, they’re 6-1 for the first time in 14 years. The Giants offense again, led by Daniel Jones, had to use fourth quarter magic to rally and win as the offense for the majority of the game looked really good. With the Giants now sitting at 6-1, here are my three takeaways from Big Blue’s victory.

Daniel Jones can be the Giants franchise quarterback:

I have had my doubts about Daniel Jones as the Giants starting quarterback after two disappointing seasons in 2020 and 2021. Now, he has proven me wrong. Again, Jones rallied and helped the Giants comeback and take down the Jags in the fourth quarter making it five fourth quarter comebacks for the Giants in just seven games this season. He is also limiting turnovers and being smart with the football and using his legs having rushed for over 100 yards against Jacksonville. Plus, look what he’s working with, no Kadarius Toney, no Kenny Golladay and no Sterling Shepard and the Giants are 6-1! Say what you want about the Giants and Daniel Jones but he has shown he can be the Giants long term answer at quarterback.

Brian Daboll is the Coach of the Year

Brian Daboll has turned this franchise around into a winning culture. He is a winner and does not quit! He keeps his players optimistic and gives his team opportunities to come back. Also, he has won six of his first seven games from a team that was only able to muster four wins all last season. Daboll is the right man for the Giants job and has turned this team into a legit contender in the NFC.

The Giants defense stepped up when it mattered

When it mattered the most, again the Giants defense stepped up and held the Jaguars in check. Though Trevor Lawrence seemed to pick apart the Giants defense for the most part of the game, New York came out with the win. That has been a recurring theme for the Giants defense, when the game is one the line, they always seem to play their best football and today was no exception. It will be interesting to see if this trend can continue for the Giants, but for now, it’s working.
