EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- One by one, Daniel Jones is winning them over, just about every last one of them. The draft day critics who mocked his selection at sixth overall in the 2019 NFL draft -- then doubled and tripled down over his first three professional seasons -- have pretty much all been converted, just before his rookie contract expires after the season.

It certainly hasn’t been a smooth road to the divisional round of the playoffs. Jones has hit potholes, craters, even had the wheels fall off on multiple occasions in years’ past.

But he’s done everything this season -- and especially in his first postseason appearance -- to dispel the narratives, most notably that he’s a turnover machine.
