With a minute-twenty left on the clock in the fourth quarter, no timeouts, and the Giants needing a touchdown, Daniel Jones makes the biggest play of his pro carrier. “Jones steps up, takes off, he’s in!! Touchdown!” As a result of this, the Giants would go on to win their first game of the 2019-20 season, and Jones would record his first win as a starter.

In the third quarter, down by seven, Barkley takes a handoff from Jones and splits defenders for a 68-yard rushing touchdown. Not to forget, Barkley adds a little spice to the play and throws up a peace sign as he torches past defenders.
