EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – The biggest play of the season for the New York Giants came from Daniel Jones.
It only came from his legs, not from his arm. Jones drew read-options in the second quarter of Sunday against the Washington Football Team for a 49-yard run.
It was his second run this season playing at least 20 yards, and the longest run of his young career.
Jones forged the handoff to the middle of the first-and-10 game with 11:50 left in the first half to run Devonta Freeman and keep the ball.

He splits a gaping hole in the left side inside the hip of the tight end Evan Engram and walks down the left sideline.
Jones seemed to have a chance to fight the defenders, but he was tracked down the Washington line in Jimmy Moreland’s 29 yards. The Giants will eventually settle for a field goal.
