The New York Giants experienced surprising success in 2022, making the playoffs, and winning a playoff game in the process.
Last season was Brian Daboll’s first as the Giants’ head coach, which many considered to be a rebuilding year.
However, due to several factors, including the rise of Daniel Jones, the team was able to outperform all preseason expectations.
Jones’ strong play earned him a contract extension, tying him to the Giants for the next four years.
Dan Orlovsky has recently commented on Jones’ talent, highlighting that he has only thrown 13 interceptions in his last 30 starts.

Pretty solid stretch for a guy who really struggled with that his first few season in NFL@Giants

Jones struggled in his first few NFL seasons but made marked improvements in 2022.
Last year, Jones threw for 3,205 yards, 15 touchdowns, and five interceptions, with an overall passer rating of 92.5.
This was Jones’ best passing-yardage mark in his career, the fewest amount of interceptions thrown, and his best season-long passer rating.
Whether it was Daboll’s coaching or just a realization of his potential, Jones did more than enough to earn himself a contract extension.
Seeing Jones’ success was a big indication for the Giants that they needed to surround him with more offensive talent.
During the offseason, the Giants added Darren Waller, Paris Campbell, and Jamison Crowder, along with drafting Jalin Hyatt.
With any luck, Jones will be able to take another step forward in 2023, now that he has additional receiving help.
The NFC East has continually gotten better, especially with the rise of the Philadelphia Eagles.
