Daniel Jones has another good outing but loses two fumbles

Chris Simms goes through the preseason performances so far of rookie quarterbacks like Kyler Murray, Daniel Jones, Drew Lock and even Jarrett Stidham.

Daniel Jones had almost as many fumbles as he had incompletions in the first half of the Giants’ game against the Bears on Friday night.

A week after going 5-for-5 for 67 yards and a touchdown, Jones went 11-for-14 for 161 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown was a strike to T.J. Jones in the corner of the end zone for a 15-yard score with 1:14 remaining in the half.

Earlier in the half, Jones dropped in a pass to Cody Latimer in tight coverage for a 40-yard gain.

The only negative for Jones were his two lost fumbles, one on a dropped snap and another when James Vaughters got around the corner and knocked the ball out of Jones’ hand.

Eli Manning played one series, leading the Giants on a 10-play, 79-yard touchdown drive. Manning was 4-for-4 for 42 yards and an 8-yard touchdown pass to Bennie Fowler.

Jones entered the game on the Giants’ second possession.

In his five drives, he lost a fumble; the Giants went three-and-out; he lost a fumble; the Giants kicked a field goal; and Jones threw a touchdown pass.

The Giants lead 19-6 at intermission.
