Daniel Jones trips on turf with end zone right in front of him

The Giants have taken the lead, but they almost came up short when Daniel Jones couldn’t quite close the deal.

Oh, Daniel Jones, what happened. The Giants quarterback scrambled into the wide open field and looked ready to rumble for a near 90-yard touchdown run. Instead, he tripped after 80 yards.

The Giants did manage to turn it into a touchdown on a Wayne Gallman dive into the end zone, but for a minute it looked like it would be a brutal beat for Big Blue. For now at least, the Giants lead the Eagles 14-10 on Thursday Night Football in the third quarter of Week 7.
