Game notes

[From the Giants PR Department]

  • The Giants trailed at halftime, 28-10. This was their first victory when trailing by 18 or more points since Nov. 15, 1970, when they fell behind Washington, 33-14, but scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to win, 35-33.
  • The Giants trailed entering the fourth quarter, 28-25. They had lost their previous 23 regular-season games in which they were behind after three quarters. The Giants had last rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit to win in the 2016 game against the Bengals. They trailed after three quarters, 20-14, but scored the only touchdown of the final period to win by a point.
  • Jones became the second player since the 1970 merger to throw at least two touchdown passes and run for two scores in his first NFL start. On Oct. 19, 1981, Detroit’s Erick Hipple threw for four scores and ran for two more in a 48-17 victory over Chicago.
  • Jones is the first Giants rookie quarterback to win his initial career start since Dec. 7, 1980, when Scott Brunner completed eight of 18 passes for 161 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in a 27-21 victory at Seattle. Since then, Jeff Hostetler, Dave Brown and Danny Kanell won their first pro starts as Giants, but they weren’t rookies.
  • Jones was the first quarterback drafted by the Giants to start a game for them since Dec. 28, 2003 – the final game before Manning’s arrival the following spring – when Jesse Palmer, a fourth-round choice in 2001, played the entire game in a 37-24 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Giants Stadium. Palmer completed 18 of 43 passes for 110 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.
  • Evan Engram’s 75-yard touchdown reception was the longest ever by a Giants tight end. The previous long was a 71-yarder by Aaron Thomas vs. Philadelphia on Oct. 17, 1965. Engram’s previous career long was 54 yards in a game last season against Tampa Bay.
