After a stunning comeback in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals, the New York Giants fell flat on Thursday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Giants lost 30-12 as they failed to move the chains much against the 49ers defense.
New York was severely shorthanded on the offensive end as they were without Andrew Thomas and more importantly Saquon Barkley.
Without his starting left tackle and star running back, Daniel Jones struggled to throw the football as he only managed 137 passing yards and got intercepted once.
At 1-2, questions are mounting whether or not the Giants made the correct decision extending Jones in the offseason.
However, Greg Jennings went the other way and wondered if Jones should have accepted New York’s offense via First Things First.
“Watching Giants-49ers I had to question whether Daniel Jones made the wrong decision — to sign back with the Giants. “He was out there literally by himself. The takeaway was can they even protect him?” Jennings said.

Jennings has maintained the belief that Jones is a top-10 quarterback in the NFL and argued that Jones’ poor performance in Week 3 was more a failure on the organization to not surround him with enough help.
Without Barkley, the offensive weapons are a bit lacking even though they have Darren Waller on board.
Waller hasn’t been able to live up to the training camp hype so far while the receiver room has been inconsistent.
Jones may not have his primary weapon in Barkley or even a healthy offensive line at the moment, but for what he’s making he also needs to be better and find ways to get New York back in the win column.NEXT: Victor Cruz Recalls Infamous Giants Boat Picture
