Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had some advice for New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones after Sunday’s matchup.
On Sunday, the New York Giants dropped their eighth-consecutive game. They’re now 2-10 after the Green Bay Packers ousted them 31-13 at MetLife Stadium. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was able to pick apart the Giants secondary, tossing four touchdowns in the snow.
Giants rookie Daniel Jones, on the other hand, didn’t have the greatest game whatsoever. The first-year player completed 54% of his throws for one touchdown and three picks.
He was able to catch up with Rodgers after the game, as the two-time MVP quarterback gave the 22-year-old some great advice.

“Hang in there brother,” Rodgers said. “Long career right? Learn from these days, and the good ones too.”
Rodgers has been in this league for 15 years now. Therefore, he’s had days like the one Jones had on Sunday. His advice is most definitely valid for the young rookie quarterback.
Rodgers completed 63.6% of his throws for 243 yards and zero picks. The four scores were to Davante Adams (twice), Allen Lazard, and Marcedes Lewis. Jones’ lone touchdown pass was to Sterling Shepard.
The score tied the game at seven in the first quarter. It was Shepard’s first touchdown reception since the Week 3 win in Tampa Bay.
With the loss, the Giants are now at the very bottom of the NFC East division. This is due to the fact that the Washington Redskins ousted the Carolina Panthers for their second consecutive victory.
Big Blue’s Week 14 matchup will be against the struggling Philadelphia Eagles next Monday night.
