Daniel Jones winless prime-time record b

  • Daniel Jones' tenure as the Giants' starting quarterback has been filled with lowlights. The former No. 6 overall pick just hasn't put it together in his three years and some change in Gotham, grading out as an average to below-average signal-caller so far in his short career.With that, Monday night provided Jones and Big Blue with the perfect opportunity for a reset. The Giants entered their prime-time clash with the Cowboys with a 2-0 record. Midway through the third quarter, it seemed Jones and the G's were headed to a third straight dub to start the year.That's when Jones' prime-time game struggles reared their ugly heads. The Duke product was thoroughly outplayed by Dallas backup Cooper Rush, who proceeded to lead the Cowboys to a 23-16 Kristaps Porzingis Jersey comeback victory. In an all-too-familiar scene, New York saw its late-game rally go up in smoke after Jones was picked by Trevon Diggs.Monday night's dour affair was the latest in a string of ugly performances for Jones and the Giants in prime time. In fact, New York's latest defeat represents the ninth time Jones has lost a game under the bright lights. He hasn't yet won a game New York Knicks T-Shirts held in a prime-time slot.MORE: | |Is Jones' unfortunate record in nationally televised games simply a product of his own torpidity? Or is he just wildly unlucky? The Sporting News breaks down just how poorly Jones has played in big games so far. 1,731Jones' numbers in prime-time games don't make for pretty viewing at first glance. He's thrown for 1,731 yards in his nine career games under the bright lights. That's an average of le s than 200 yards per game, a number that would put even the worst starting signal-callers in the league to shame.He's never hit the 300 pa sing yard plateau in a nationally televised game, and has failed to reach 200 pa sing Willis Reed Jersey yards in four of his nine prime-time appearances, including against the Cowboys on Monday. Yikes.12Jones hasn't shown too much moxie in the red zone during his NFL career, only recording 11 and 10 pa sing touchdowns in his last two seasons, respectively.Those foibles have surfaced during prime-time contests, too. Jones has just 12 pa sing touchdowns through his nine prime-time appearances. That's an average of just 1.33 pa sing touchdowns per game, numbers that simply won't cut it against football's best.Monday night represented the first time Jones failed to bag a touchdown pa s in a prime-time game in his career. That's certainly not ideal.MORE:13Having a touchdown-to-interception ratio below one is always a cause for a concern. And although Jones' career TD/INT ratio is OK (48 touchdowns to 31 picks, or 1.55 TDs per INT), his prime-time numbers definitely leave something to be Tim Hardaway Jr. Jersey desired.Jones has found the mitts of an opposition defender on 13 different occasions in games under the lights. Jones' interception numbers are largely inflated by a series of multi-pick games Jones has had so far in prime-time, including a three-interception display in his first prime-time game, a 35-14 Thursday night beatdown by Tom Brady and the Pats in October 2019.8.71For all of Jones' pa sing struggles, he's actually showed a lot of promise once he gets a move on. He's averaging 8.71 yards per carry during prime-time games, a rate comparable with Lamar Jackson's 9.3 yards per carry average he has posted so far this season.His standout rushing performances under the bright lights came in a Week 7 lo s to Walt Frazier Jersey Philly in 2020 (four carries, 92 yards) and Week 2 lo s to Washington last year (nine carries, 95 yards). The Giants dropped both games by one point.MORE:3For all of the joy Jones has found running the football, his limitations are still more than apparent. He has fumbled the ball four times, losing three of them, in nationally televised matchups.---
