Daniel Jones PFF Offensive Player of the Week

The Giants’ quarterback gets recognized for his outstanding game. vs. Washington.

The Giants may have let Thursday Night Football slip away from them in their one-point loss to the Washington Football Team, but quarterback Daniel Jones did everything he could to lead them to victory. He led all quarterbacks in Week 2 in total completions on passes thrown 10 or more yards downfield with 11, and even that could have been more, as two more of his downfield throws were dropped.

The third-year quarterback also led the position in positively graded throws and recorded the week’s lowest negatively graded throw rate, an impressive feat, given that he was under pressure on 44.7% of his dropbacks.

Jones didn’t let pressure disrupt the timing of the offense, standing tall in the pocket and delivering accurate throws. He also showed off the impact he can make in the running game with three runs of 10-plus yards, tying Lamar Jackson and Jalen Hurts for the most of the week.

The Duke product earned the first 90.0-plus single-game grade (91.3) of his career, a step in the right direction in a pivotal year.

Toney simply doesn’t have a significant role within this offense yet. The tape doesn’t show a clear reason why this is the case. His routes look sharp and productive, but he didn’t receive a single target on 19 snaps this week. Toney at this point is an occasional decoy.
