The Giants’ 38-10 victory over the Colts included both heroes and zeros.
Daniel Jones completed 19 of 24 throws for 177 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing 11 times for 91 yards and two more scores. He was substituted out of the game to chants of “Daniel Jones!”
Former Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Nick Foles completed eight of thirteen throws for 81 yards, but his interception by Landon Collins late in the second quarter effectively ended the game. Shortly later, he was eliminated from the game by Kayvon Thibodeaux.
The Giants led 7-3 after Richie James caught seven passes for 76 yards and scored the game’s first touchdown. After a midseason absence, he has returned with 15 receptions for 166 yards over the previous two games.
