But not paying attention to the “Grass Monster,” as Troy Aikman of Fox Sport called him, turned out to be the 23-year-old’s failure.
With no one in between and a 87-yard touchdown, the New York Giants quarterback stumbled into the grass of Fincadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Finance Field in the middle of the third quarter on the 8-yard line.
And although his display of supreme athleticism provoked the giants̵
As a repeat of his desperate journey played on the big screen of the stadium, Giants linebacker Carter Coughlin and quarterback Leonard Williams were spotted pointing and laughing as Jones fell to the floor.
Although the Giants continued to score their second touchdown of the evening just a few plays later, that didn’t stop other NFL players from having fun with the incident on social media.
Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mohammes was much nicer to Jones.
Jones ’embarrassment was added later, as after a 21-10 run, the Giants’ defense could not stop Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and brought them back to victory 22-21.
Thanks to the victory, the “eagles” improved to 2-4-1, while the “giants” fell to 1-6.
