Giants’ Saquon Barkley stakes claim in ‘Is Daniel Jones elite?’ debate

The Giants were viewed as underdogs as they traveled to face the Minnesota Vikings during the NFL’s Wild Card weekend. They didn’t look like underdogs one bit throughout the duration of this game, though. A lot of that had to do with how quarterback Daniel Jones played.

The fourth-year signal-caller was partaking in his first career playoff game, but he made it look like this is an environment he plays in annually. Jones led the Giants to their first postseason victory in more than a decade, and his play was just about immaculate.

Jones completed 24-of-35 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns.
