Met Life: Daniel Jones biggest game of his career gives Giants their first playoff berth since 2016.

Let's take a trip down memory lane. It's August of 2022. The Giants had a successful draft in the spring and a new regime in the building, but key veterans were cut and the expectations for the Big Blue were mid.


Yahoo predicted the Giants to barely win 6 games. Power Rankings Guru gave the Giants a 24% playoff probability, CBS said they would be 1-7 in their first 8 games.


Fast forward to the end of the year. The Giants surprised the league and upset Aaron Rodgers, Lamar Jackson, and many others across the board. December rolls around and reality start to settle. Injuries were stacking up, the Vikings nail a 61 yarder on Christmas Eve, things were bleak.


Then, the New Years bell dropped, 2023 began, and the Giants absolutely dominated the Colts for their 9th win of the season.


Earlier today, some friends joked about how the Giants were trash, and Daniel Jones wasn't a good quarterback. Well, the Giants are now back to the promise land, and Daniel Jones had the best game of his career, and the most meaningful too. It's the first postseason berth in his career, and the first since the infamous photo.

What a refreshing game, refreshing season, everything just feels right again. In a loaded division, the Giants had limited resources, and brought themselves back into the playoffs. Since Eli left, there has always been questions of Jones. For years, there's been questions about the franchise as a whole. Today, we don't have to think about either of those things.


News broke that the Giants would like to extend Jones, and today he reaffirmed the organization, and the fanbase. 19-for-24, 177 yards, and two touchdowns. 91 yards on the ground and two more touchdowns running. Danny Dimes, Danny Runs, Danny Wins.


The fans came out, the atmosphere created by the win-and-in scenario erupted MetLife.


The Giants locked into the No. 6 seed in the NFC and will play on the road in the wild-card round of the playoffs against the third seed. Next week's games against the Eagles has no meaning. Maybe they rest players, maybe they beat down the Eagles, but for now, we celebrate the season and today.


Proud to be a Giants fan, today, tomorrow, and always.
