Quarterback Daniel Jones

Q: Is this about as good as you could expect it to go for your one series in the preseason?

A: I thought we did some good things. I thought we executed pretty well. A couple plays, could sharpen up a few things there, we'll look to do that. But overall, I thought we executed well. Yeah.

Q: Who's that No. 12 (tight end Darren Waller) you were throwing to? You guys seemed to have a pretty good chemistry.

A: Yeah, he showed up for us there a good bit. He's been big for us all camp and he played well again tonight, for sure.

Q: What does a drive like that do for the offense? Obviously, you guys are practicing, and you come out and are able to do that the first time on the field. Is that just confidence? What does it do for this group?

A: Yeah, I think it helps our confidence. I think, overall, we've been pretty confident in what we can do and our level of execution and yeah, it certainly helps that. But like I said, there's things we can sharpen up and clean up and we'll look to do that, for sure.

Q: Tell me about your connection with Darren in camp that's kind of allowed you guys to be so successful so quickly together on the field, it seems like.

A: Yeah, I mean, he's a big target. He runs good routes, creates separation, he's an easy guy to find. So, yeah, he's a talented player, smart guy, understands defense, understands where we're trying to use him and how to get open.

Q: I know you guys have no idea at this point – there's only one preseason game left – whether you're going to play in that game or not, but assuming you don't, how much is it at least that you go into the season feeling pretty good about yourself offensively?

A: Yeah, like I said, I think we can build on some of the things we did tonight and then there'll certainly be things we've got to clean up and do better, but we're always trying to do that. Whether tonight was good or bad wasn't going to change what the process is going forward and how we're going to approach these next few weeks. There's still a lot we need to do to clean up and get ready to go.

Q: Before Darren came here, how familiar were you with him as a player, as a tight end?

A: I watched a lot of his tape. You watch a lot of tape from teams across the league, so he shows up all the time making plays, and you've seen that, but it's definitely different when you get on the field with him. He's extremely versatile. I think that is something that's impressed me. He's got the vertical speed to run past people, but he's also got good feel and understanding of the underneath stuff also.

Q: This is your first game. You've been in so many practices. Did you feel sharp?

A: Yeah, I felt good. Yeah, I thought we all felt pretty good. I thought we executed well. Guys were in the right spots and guys up front did a good job protecting and, yeah, I thought it was pretty clean.

Q: How impressive is what (wide receiver Sterling) Shep(ard) is doing here for you, coming back from two serious back-to-back injuries and sort of looking the way he has – pretty explosive, pretty shifty?

A: It's extremely impressive. He's worked really hard to get back and yeah, he's been a big-time player for us these past few years when he's been healthy. He's worked hard to get back and made a lot of plays in practice and then looked good tonight, too. So, it's extremely impressive.

Q: I'm guessing you were on the radio. Did you know that (wide receiver Jalin) Hyatt touchdown was going to come when they called that play?

A: Yeah, I thought there was a good chance if we got a certain coverage that we did end up getting and letting him use his speed and go get it. (Quarterback) Tyrod (Taylor) threw a good ball.
