Daniel Jones and the New York Giants are set to take on the Green Bay Packers in Week 13 NFL action. While the Giants are going to be viewed as major underdogs against the Packers, who are 8-3, they are going to do everything in their power to make this a trap game. It isn’t likely that they will pull out the win, but he will do everything he can to make it happen.
Green Bay is coming off of an embarrassing 37-8 blowout loss at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers. Jones will have to go up against an angry team looking to take their frustration out on the Giants.
All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at some bold predictions for the rookie quarterback.
He Will Throw for 250 Yards, Two Touchdowns
While it isn’t going to be an easy game, Jones is still going to make some plays. When everything is said and done, he will throw for 250 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers.
That may not be enough to pull out a win, but it will still show that he can step up against quality opponents. Green Bay has an excellent pass rush and a secondary capable of making plays. Jones is going to find ways to move the football even against that kind of pressure.
Jones Will Turn the Ball Over Two Times
We’re going to go ahead and say that Jones will split the turnovers between an interception and a fumble. He has had a ton of issues with fumbles this season and both Preston and Za’Darius Smith are capable of getting to the quarterback often. Green Bay will force at least two turnovers this week.
Jones has a lot to learn when it comes to taking care of the football. He has shown the ability to make some big plays, but taking care of the football is the biggest thing that he must do moving forward.
The Giants Won’t Win, But Will Be Competitive
Finally, Jones isn’t going to be able to lead the Giants to a win over a tough Packers’ football team, but he will do enough to keep them competitive. That isn’t to say that New York will only lose by a single possession, but they aren’t going to go down without a fight.
Jones will find a way to move the football and put points on the board. Saquon Barkley should have a solid game as well against a run defense that hasn’t been all that good. It won’t be a win, but it will give the Giants and their fans more optimism.
