New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones addressed his ongoing turnover woes after the team’s 37-18 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Once again, the turnover bug made its way to New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. In what ended up being a 37-18 defeat at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, the rookie turned the ball over three times. This included an interception and two lost fumbles, one of which the Cowboys returned for a touchdown in the waning seconds of the game.
After the loss, Jones addressed the turnovers, which has remained an issue for the young quarterback. He now has 16 turnovers in eight games (seven starts), with eight picks and eight lost fumbles.

“Anytime you turn the ball over it’s costly to the team,” he said. “I gotta work on that and make sure I’m securing the ball.”
The lone interception was to Cowboys safety Xavier Woods near the end of the first half. The turnover led to a Dallas go-ahead field goal to give them a 13-12 lead heading into halftime.
You could argue the final lost fumble was the responsibility of left tackle Nate Solder, who was beaten to the outside by defensive end Dorance Armstrong. The pressure led to the strip-sack of Jones along with the scoop-and-score from cornerback Jourdan Lewis.
The Giants have now lost five consecutive games to the Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, and now the Cowboys. At 2-7, they’ll take on the 1-7 New York Jets next Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET.
