Daniel Jones is gone! Well … almost.
The New York Giants‘ quarterback seemed destined for an 88-yard touchdown run. Until the turf got him.
With nobody in sight, Jones had a certain touchdown disappear midway through the third quarter when he stumbled and fell at the Eagles’ 8-yard line. The 80-yard run still was the longest quarterback run since 2015, when Marcus Mariota had an 87-yard scamper against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jones reached a max speed of 21.23 mph, the fastest by a quarterback since 2018.
DJ’S GOT TURBO SPEED

Fortunately for New York, it eventually scored three plays later on a 1-yard run by running back Wayne Gallman.
