Daniel Jones, Giants rally from 20-0 hole to stun Cardinals

The New York Giants defeated the Arizona Cardinals 31-28 in Glendale, Arizona on September 17. Daniel Jones led the Giants to victory by throwing two touchdowns and running for one. The Giants scored all their points in the second half, outscoring the Cardinals 17-0 in the fourth quarter. Jones completed 26 of 37 passes for 321 yards.

Jones connected with Saquon Barkley for a 9-yard touchdown pass and with Isaiah Hodgins for an 11-yard touchdown pass. He then led the Giants on a 56-yard drive that ended with Graham Gano’s winning 34-yard field goal with 19 seconds left on the clock.

Joshua Dobbs filled in for the injured Kyler Murray and passed for 228 yards and one touchdown. James Conner rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown for the Cardinals.

The Giants had a rough start to the season, suffering a 40-0 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys in their season opener. They trailed the Cardinals 20-0 at halftime.

However, on the first offensive play of the second half, Jones connected with Jalin Hyatt for a 58-yard pass completion. Two plays later, Jones ran for a 14-yard touchdown, giving the Giants their first points of the season.

The Cardinals responded with Dobbs’ 3-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown and Dobbs’ two-point conversion run, extending their lead to 28-7.

But the Giants fought back. Barkley scored a 1-yard touchdown run, bringing the Giants within 28-14 at the end of the third quarter.

In the first quarter, Conner ran 4 yards for a touchdown, giving the Cardinals a 7-0 lead. In the second quarter, Dobbs scrambled 23 yards for a touchdown, and Matt Prater kicked a 37-yard field goal, extending the Cardinals’ lead to 17-0.

The Giants had a chance to score in the second quarter, but a pass from Jones was intercepted by Jalen Thompson, who returned it 35 yards to the New York 34. Prater then kicked a 44-yard field goal, increasing the Cardinals’ lead to 20-0 at halftime.

In the end, the Giants rallied in the second half, securing their first win of the season.
