The former Duke Blue Devil was the sixth overall pick of the Giants in last April's NFL Draft, which was met with shock and boos from the Giants faithful, and experts around the league, especially with Dwayne Haskins still available at the time. The rookie slowly started to quiet those doubters with a strong preseason, which saw him complete 85.3 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
The Giants have dropped games to the Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills to begin the season, which signaled the end of the 38-year-old Manning for now. He has made 232 starts for the Giants since taking over for Kurt Warner in 2004, which was his rookie season. He has won the Super Bowl MVP both times they won it all, but he has completed just 62 percent of his passes for 556 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, along with a fumble loss this season. The team has lost the first two games by a combined 32 points, and are 0-2 for the sixth time in seven seasons. The veteran is 22nd out of 32 with a 37.5 QBR, so Jones could start a brand new chapter of New York Giant football beginning Sunday evening.
