New York Giants: Two times Daniel Jones showed his potential in week 10

It’s been an up and down season for New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, but week 10 against Philadelphia was one of his better performances. Jones avoided turning the ball over and helped the Giants to their firmest win of the season so far, bringing them up to a three win record and keeping them loosely in the hunt for the division.

It’s worth going back and looking at this performance in more detail, because there’s a few moments where Jones’ potential to improve with the team shone through.

34 yard rushing touchdown


When the Giants drafted Daniel Jones, part of the reason they did so is the need for a mobile quarterback. Eli Manning wasn’t exactly mobile and it was said that Jones would be an upgrade in this area. And Jones has shown that this season, where the Giants have struggled with rushing overall – he’s still the team’s leading rusher, even at this point in the season.

The Giants having to rely on Jones in the rushing game isn’t an ideal situation but it did work out when Jones rushed for a touchdown against Philadelphia.

The offensive line opened up a gap through misdirection and Jones really showed off his speed on this play. The Eagles recovered from their initial mistake of falling for the bait play quickly enough that they could have made a stop. However, Jones ended up being too fast for them and outran multiple defenders to reach the end zone.

This play was pretty significant because it showed just what the Giants are getting with the more mobile Jones compared to strictly pocket passing QBs. And as the offensive line improves, we may see more runs like this with Jones going outside the pocket to gain yards rather than to avoid defenders who have broken through the line.

Deep sideline pass to Golden Tate

This one comes in the third quarter when the Giants were driving down the field, and Jones showed good skills in a couple of areas. For one, he did a better than usual job of actually reading the field and finding his target under pressure. The pocket started to get pushed in on this play and by the time the ball was thrown, Andrew Thomas was already in Jones’ face.

Jones has been criticized for throwing passes that aren’t hard for defenders to intercept, but in this case Jones put the ball high up and ahead of the cornerback, ensuring that the only one that could actually come down with the ball was Tate.

It’s not the only play like this that Jones made during the game. And we can take these plays as a sign of Jones improving at both reading the field and putting the ball somewhere where it won’t be intercepted by the opposing defense.

The Giants take on another bad team that they have a decent chance of beating when they face the Bengals after their bye. Will the improvement of Jones continue then? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Kansas Hospital Officials Fear Nursing Shortage Amid Surge

Hospital and nursing officials fear that if COVID-19 cases continue unchecked there won't be enough nurses to staff new hospital beds in the near future in the Kansas City metro area.

“All the things we were worried about could be possible in March, April and May are actually happening right now, and that should be scary for all of us,” said David Wild, vice president of performance improvement at the University of Kansas Health System.

Kansas health officials on Monday added 4,425 cases to the state’s pandemic tally since Friday, bringing the total to 157,446. Data showed that Kansas averaged 2,198 new confirmed and probable coronavirus a day for the seven days ending Monday. That is below the record average of 2,766 cases.

The number of COVID-19 related deaths also rose by 31 to 1,560.

It is too soon to see how Thanksgiving gatherings have impacted coronavirus numbers, but medical providers expect to see another rise in hospitalizations in 10 to 14 days once people begin showing symptoms.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment reported on Monday 87 new hospitalizations, bringing the total of hospitalizations to 5,105 since the start of the pandemic. The state’s COVID-19 dashboard showed 227 coronavirus patients were in ICU units, with 39% of ICU capacity remaining in Kansas.

High community spread means more nurses are liable to contract the disease, forcing them into quarantine. Child care also is an issue, says Kelly Sommers, state director of the Kansas State Nurses Association.

The Kansas Hospital Association’s dashboard on Friday showed 14 of the metro area’s 33 hospitals, or about 42%, reporting they anticipated critical staff shortages in the following week, KCUR reported.

“The obvious answer is to get some temporary people, traveling nurses,” says Dr. Steve Stites, chief medical officer at the University of Kansas Health System. “But they’re just not as available as they once were because everybody’s scrambling for the same folks.”

Health providers anticipate the need for more COVID-19 testing following the Thanksgiving holiday, as testing numbers have more than doubled since cases began rising again in the Kansas City area.

Hospitalization numbers were also back up Monday after stabilizing over the holiday weekend, said Dr. Dana Hawkinson, an infectious disease expert at the University of Kansas Health System. The hospital is now treating 102 active cases, of which 46 are in the intensive care unit and 30 are on ventilators, KCUR reported.

“It looks like social gatherings, not so much school, but those other places where people are getting together where they aren’t really necessarily wearing masks as they should be, distancing as they should be, is really a concern,” Hawkinson said.

Hawkinson recommended that anyone who traveled or celebrated in a group for the holiday should act as if they are infected by quarantining and getting tested.
