The New York Giants’ defense bailed out the offense after another lackluster performance against the Washington Football Team on Sunday.

Washington made it close, scoring late but just missing out on a two-point conversion.

Daniel Jones was 12-for-19 with 112 passing yards and a touchdown pass to Darius Slayton in the first quarter. But Jones had another brutal interception to Kendall Fuller in the red zone.

Jones had a nice run earlier in the game. He scampered for a 49-yard run and even fooled the broadcast cameras. He finished with 74 rushing yards.

Only one Giants player had more than two catches. Kaden Smith had three catches for 15 yards.
