Daniel Jones fails spectacularly, trips during 80-yard run for Giants
Yes, you read that headline right. New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones rushed for 80 yards on a play. In a National Football League game.
In the third quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles, Jones faked a handoff that was headed left and scrambled right.
With a fairly crowded box deployed by the Eagles, nearly every defender on the field was either stuck in that left side or out of position.
Only a cornerback remained on the right side, and one of Jones’ wideouts picked the block up, leaving Jones with nothing but daylight.
Jones got by that guy, and play-by-play man Joe Buck declared that Jones was “gone.”
He was, until he wasn’t, tripping over himself and coming up less than 10 yards short of the end zone.
Twitter was there to react to the hilarious fail.
