Giants’ Daniel Jones hits Darius Slayton on 41-yard TD pass vs Steelers
Daniel Jones and Darius Slayton built a rapport for the New York Giants in 2019 and they’ve begun where they left off in 2020. In the first half of Monday’s contest, Jones delivered a 41-yard touchdown pass to Slayton versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

One of the concerns that many have with the Giants is their offensive line’s ability to protect Jones. Despite the concerns, on this play, the offensive line gives Jones plenty of time to scan the field before finding Slayton down the field.
The second-year quarterback threw a pinpoint pass to Slayton, who is also in his second season with the Giants. After Slayton’s touchdown grab, New York was able to take their second lead of the game.
After catching his first touchdown of the season on Monday night, Slayton and Jones have connected on nine touchdowns in their first 15 games together. If the Giants want to defeat the Steelers in Week 1, New York may need more plays from Jones to Slayton down the stretch.
