Good Morning,Â New York GiantsÂ Fans!
The New York Giants have scored a combined 56-points over the last two weeks on the shoulders of rookie passer, Daniel Jones. The offense has been rolling, especially when it comes to the passing game and ability to move the chains through the air.
Their impressive statistical totals only attest to the elevation of the unit and forward momentum. Jones’ ability to escape the pocket and utilize his legs to pick up first downs and extend drives has been essential to the team’s success. To justify his quality, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pummeled the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday coming away with three interceptions on Jared Goff and a fumble, which was taken to the house for a touchdown. They also tallied two sacks against a quality Rams offensive line.
Jones didn’t turn the ball over a single time against the Bucs, in fact, he threw for two scores and ran two in as well. His 336-yard performance secured the Giants’ first win of the season. Fast forward one week and the Giants put down the Washington Redskins with ease (24-3).
This week, the team gains back an influential player/top pass-catcher in Golden Tate. The former Detroit Lion and Philadelphia Eagles receiver will give Jones yet another set of hands to trust in the passing game. Tate has earned extremely impressive marks during his career for yards after the catch. He’s one the most efficient receivers in the NFL since signing with Detroit, having the most yards after catch (2,736) in the NFL since 2014. He’s also an incredibly talented third-down receiver — 124 third-down conversions since 2014, second-most in the NFL.
The Giants are gaining a great player in Tate and a fantastic target for Jones in the passing game. Expect him to be a focal point moving forward.
