Giants QB among NFL stars on Sunday

Five NFL wildcard games are on the books (we still have Monday night’s Cowboys-Buccaneers game) and the best performances deserve recognition from our MMQB staff.

Here are the stars of this weekend:

Gary Gramling: Abracadaniel, franchise quarterback, Giants. There was a long list of “is he worth another contract?” quarterbacks entering the season, and only one of them answered emphatically in the affirmative. For some reason, Daniel Jones – who has drawn unwarranted cackles from pundits since the day he was drafted – was still in heat at the start of this season despite, for example, spending a Monday night warding off some time and space against the relentless Cowboys. pass the rush and shoot peas all over the field to see them fall by a collection of equally run receivers. He spent the season working with those receivers and often overcoming their struggles. He also had a creative attacking brain trust, led by Brian Daboll, and they all found their way through Jones’ increasingly reliable work from the pocket, his underrated ability to create late down and his streak. to play big games with his legs. Now here we are, a historical performance (24 of 35, 301 passing yards, two touchdowns and 78 rushing yards against the Vikings) in a road playoff win for a quarterback that earned the Giants quarterback right for the next half decade.
