NYG Postgame (vs. Cowboys) Transcripts: QB Daniel Jones -- November 4, 2019
Q: How frustrating is it for you to see you guys start fine, start fast and then kind of hit a rut in the middle of the game and try to fight your way out of it? How tough is that to go through when you guys are so young as a team?
A: Yeah, thatís tough. I think we started better than we had in previous weeks, but we still missed a couple of opportunities to score touchdowns when we had the ball down there. That was costly for us. Yeah, in the middle of the game, kind of struggled. We were stagnant a little bit and couldnít move the ball consistently. Itís frustrating. Itís frustrating to lose, but we have to make sure we learn from it and we improve. I think thatís what weíll do this week.
Q: How much of a factor was the pass pressure?
A: They have a good pass rush and some guys up there who can do that. Credit to them, but I have to do a better job of getting the ball out and making sure weíre where we need to go up front and protections.
Q: Do you view games like this more along the lines of losses or lessons, and if itís lessons, what are you able to pull out from a game like this, or games like this?
A: Well, itís certainly a loss. I donít thinkÖ You canít hide from that. Itís a loss. But like you said, there are things to learn from that. I think a number of things. For one, just scoring in the red zone was huge tonight. I think first and second down, we have to do a better job. I have to do a better job making sure weíre moving the ball forward and getting third downs down there that are manageable and chances to score or get the first down. I think that was big for us tonight.
Q: How bizarre was it to see a black cat on the field?
A: Yeah, that was strange. I didnít exactly know what was going on at first. But yeah, you donít see that every week.
Q: The fumble earlier on and then the one late, is that a particular source of concern for you that things keep happening with ball security?
A: Yeah, anytime you turn the ball over, itís costly to the team. I have to work on that and making sure Iím securing the ball.
Q: Do you feel like games like this, you feel like you make progress, in a game like this? You kind of feel the light come on in certain spots?
A: I think week to week, Iíve gotten better in some areas and I havenít in others. The challenge is to continue to get better and correct the things I havenít done well. Yeah, I have to keep working at that.
Q: The pass to Golden (Tate) where he made the one-handed catch, did you kind of think there was some momentum built from that?
A: Yeah, that was a big time play there from him on third down. He came up big for us. Yeah, we felt some momentum there in the first half and felt like we were in control of the game. But like I said, we didnít score touchdowns in a lot of those situations and didnít do that throughout the rest of the game.
