Daniel Jones has all of the tools to grow into a great quarterback for the New York Giants, and expect him to be able to show off some of that skill-set in Week 5. Itll be a test that is quicker with the Vikings pass rush and talent in their secondary — but Jones has weapons to throw to.
If New York will give some time and space to operate at the pocket to Jones, he needs to be able to make his reads and connect downfield. Jones has Evan Engram at end, Sterling Shepard, and Golden Tate whos returned from suspension.

Search to discover a way to shield Daniel Jones, and the talent of the recipients of New York to make a difference. Look for the Giants to hang around in this one, while securing the win will probably be tough.
