New York Giants’ Daniel Jones caps impressive opening drive with touchdown run

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The New York Giants looked smooth against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on their opening drive, which ended with a Daniel Jones 6-yard touchdown run.

Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett called Jones’ number on second and goal from the Washington 6-yard line. Guards Will Hernandez and Nick Gates sealed their defenders and Jones ran through a sizable hole up the middle. He powered through safety Kamren Curl at the 4-yard line and dove across the goal line for the opening score at 7:39 of the first quarter.

It capped an 11-play, 79-yard drive after Washington had gone three-and-out.

For Jones it was his second rushing touchdown of the season. He also rushed for a touchdown late in a season-opening 27-13 loss to the Denver Broncos. Jones also completed all four of his passes for 45 yards on the drive.

Jones is the first Giants player since 2005 to rush for a TD in the team’s first two games of the season. Both Brandon Jacobs and Tiki Barber did it in 2005.
