Like every Giants fan in the country, Brian Daboll was furious over quarterback Daniel Jones’ problems with turning the ball over.
After being nearly absent for three quarters against the Tennessee Titans, the New York Giants woke up in the fourth and began to engineer a comeback effort, down 13-20.
The Giants recovered a mishandled punt by the Titans with 10 minutes to go in the fourth. In the ensuing drive at the goal line, Jones tossed the ball straight to Titans safety Amani Hooker for the endzone interception.
Jones was promptly met by Daboll and received an earful from his HC over the errant throw.
Daboll’s disappointment apparently put the fear of God in Jones.
Jones and the Giants’ offense got another shot at tying (or winning) and reached the goal line with a minute left; still down one score.
DJ hit Giants fullback Chris Myarick for the 19-20 deficit, which was then followed up by a successful two-point conversation off a Saquon Barkley run. A missed field goal attempt by TEN’s kicker, Randy Bullock, capped a thrilling comeback win by the G-Men, 21-20.
One of the biggest takeaways from the Giants’ season-opener has to be coach Daboll’s massive clackers, said OutKick 360’s Chad Withrow.
And we agree.
