2.) Daniel Jones will score three touchdowns

Second-year quarterback Daniel Jones hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass in over two games, but the Dallas defense is welcoming. Having just handed out 49 points to the Cleveland Browns, the Giants enter the game with “breakout” in mind.

Jones has been a different quarterback this year under Jason Garrett’s thumb, mainly failing to progress through his reads at an optimal rate. He has tended to stick to his first read and shy away from taking risks downfield. His ability to throw outside the numbers has also been problematic, which resulted in an interception late in the game against the Rams in week four.

Dallas has two reserve corners in there starting secondary, so we can expect the Giants to take shots of them early and often.
