Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett called Jones’ number on second and goal from the Washington 6-yard line. Guards Will Hernandez and Nick Gates sealed their defenders and Jones ran through a sizable hole up the middle. He powered through safety Kamren Curl at the 4-yard line and dove across the goal line for the opening score at 7:39 of the first quarter.
It capped an 11-play, 79-yard drive after Washington had gone three-and-out.
For Jones it was his second rushing touchdown of the season. He also rushed for a touchdown late in a season-opening 27-13 loss to the Denver Broncos. Jones also completed all four of his passes for 45 yards on the drive.
That’s how you finish a drive! ?

Jones is the first Giants player since 2005 to rush for a TD in the team’s first two games of the season. Both Brandon Jacobs and Tiki Barber did it in 2005.
