The New York Giants can’t buy a win. They hosted the (now) 9-3 Green Bay Packers at MetLife Stadium on Sunday in the midst of a torrential snow storm. The Giants gave it a valiant effort, tying the game at seven on their second drive.
Unfortunately, the Packers would wear down the Giants and pull off a 31-13 win. But not all is lost, the Giants are still mathematically in the playoff race and there are three things we learned from the loss:
Jones took some major hits on Sunday, including one that was so hard that the “Y” in “NY” was knocked off his helmet. He kept moving, though, even once that contact was made. Later in the game Jones suffered an ankle injury, but he played through it.
Say what you will about the rookie, but one thing you cannot question is his toughness or his heart. The young quarterback clearly loves football and is willing to do whatever it takes to help his team.
