Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Giants’ Daniel Jones outperformed by Patriots’ Mac Jones at joint practice

Daniel Jones tossed back-to-back touchdown passes to tight end Evan Engram in one 7-on-7 period, but failed to get the Giants into the end zone on the next 7-on-7 session. In the Giants’ first-team period, Jones completed a pass to Darius Slayton, had to pull the ball down and run when no one got open, then looked for Slayton over the middle but was intercepted by defensive back Kyle Dugger, the ball sailing directly into his hands.

In a two-minute drill series, Jones started strong, connecting twice with Slayton, but then threw wide of Sterling Shepard. There was a dropped pass by tight end Nakia Griffin-Stewart and, to end the “drive,’’ a throw to tight end Jake Hausmann that fell to the grass, with Adrian Phillips all over the intended target.
