“The guys were very happy” said Joe Judge. “There’s been a lot of pressure that they’ve put on themselves and that we put on them. They’ve been fighting hard for six weeks and working through training camp for us. You hit this point right here and you just want to get the results. And I’m happy the fans were able to have it and I’m happy the players were able to enjoy it today.”
Daniel Jones completed 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The attempts, completions and yards were all Jones’ lowest totals in his 18 career starts.
“It was an exciting moment in the locker room with everyone and like I said, we battled these first five weeks, hadn’t gotten the result we all hoped for so to get it was thrilling and it was Coach’s first win so it was a lot of fun to do that” said Daniel Jones. “We were able to give him the game ball and rightfully so, he deserves it.”
Jones threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Darius Slayton with 1:36 remaining in the first quarter. It was Jones’ and the Giants’ first touchdown pass since Jones and Slayton hooked up twice in the season opener.
