Tonight, New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is determined to do something that’s never been done before. On 11 separate occasions in history, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has dueled a rookie signal-caller at home during the regular season.
Brady is a perfect 11-0 in all those games.
Jones will seek to buck that trend on Thursday Night Football, and it certainly won’t be easy for him. Apart from Brady being 11-0 against rookie quarterbacks at home, this Patriots team is also 5-0 on the season. While those wins haven’t come against the strongest of competition – Steelers, Dolphins, Jets, Bills, and Redskins – the Giants aren’t really viewed as being much better than many of those teams anyway.
