It’s debatable whether or not that’s worst than being known for being a very questionable draft pick. But aside from his less-than-fleet feet, Jones has justified himself as the Giants quarterback of the present (and potentially future). And now he’s made up for tripping up with a solid touchdown run on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

And naturally, everyone made sure to put the run in context based on what came before it…

Also, in case you wanted this to sound even weirder, Jones’s run puts him very rare company. He is now the only NFL quarterback to run for 30+ yards who isn’t named Lamar Jackson. Wild.
Daniel Jones' 34-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter today vs the Eagles was his 3rd rush of 30+ yards this season.
That is the same number of such rushes this season as…Lamar Jackson. pic.twitter.com/QSwTO27QUf

You can’t stop Daniel Jones, you can only hope to contain him. Or hope he trips…
