Amongst QBs with a minimum of 10 video games performed remaining yr, his 27.1 speeding yards in line with sport remaining yr had been the sixth-most in the NFL. This yr, he ranks fourth with 43.0.
So, Saquon Barkley, a gorgeous runner in his personal proper, has given his quarterback relatively the nickname.
“Within the NFL” launched a mic’d up second when Barkley gave him the nickname “Vanilla Vick.”
After all, the nickname is a play on Jones’ pores and skin colour and Michael Vick, most likely the most efficient speeding quarterback of all time — in the event you performed “Madden 2004,” you could possibly by no means lose with the Falcons.
“If I smash an extended one, I higher see Vanilla Vick down there,” Barkley says to Jones in a huddle.
Jones has 3 speeding touchdowns this season, serving to the New York Giants to a stunning 7-2 file. They’re en path to their first playoff look since 2016.
The Giants rush for 164.8 yards in line with sport, the third-most within the NFL at the back of the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens, either one of whom have the benefit of speeding QBs in Justin Fields and Lamar Jackson, respectively.
The Giants will glance to strengthen to 8-2 once they host the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
