The schedule makers did young Mr. Jones no favors, presenting him with the tough Denver and Washington defenses right out of the gate. Jones acquitted himself reasonably well in the Giants' opener, completing 22 of 37 passes for 267 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. The bad news is that the Giants scored only 13 points, and Jones coughed up another fumble. He's fumbled 30 times in 28 career games, losing 18 of them. (Yikes ... is he eating greasy finger food right before kickoff?) In two 2020 games against Washington, Jones threw for 324 yards and two TDs, though he did have a 74-yard rushing day in the earlier of the two meetings. It's not a very good spot for Jones. He's the QB26 in my rankings this week.
