EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – The biggest game of the season for the New York Giants came from Daniel Jones.
But it was from his feet, not his hand. Jones withdrew a reading option in the second quarter on Sunday against the Washington football team for a 49-yard run.
It was his second run this season of at least 20 yards and the longest run of his young career.
Jones falsified the handball in the middle of the game in the first and 10 with 11:50 left in the first half to repel Devonta Freeman and keep the ball.
She even fooled the man on camera

He split a gaping hole on the left side of Evan Engram’s inner thigh at the tight end and rushed down the left side line.
It looked like Jones had a chance to outrun the defenders, but he was followed on the 29-yard line of Washington by Jimmy Moreland. The Giants would eventually settle for a field goal.
