Quarterback Daniel Jones

On maintaining confidence at halftime:

I think we always remain confident. Just getting back to simple execution, and trusting it, seeing it, and ripping it. We had some opportunities to make plays in the first half. We didn't do it and I knew that it'd be there. I just had to execute, give our guys a chance to make those plays and we did it and built off of it going forward.

On how his personal confidence has evolved and the ability to persevere when things are dire:

I think we did a great job of creating some of those opportunities and calling stuff, getting guys open and guys did a really good job making plays and the offensive line did a good job, really the whole game, and especially there in that second half.

On the 58-yard pass to start the second half:

I think it was important. Big time play by (Giants WR) Jalin (Hyatt) there, to make it, and it gave us some confidence and momentum going forward.

On how to right yourself after a 21-0 score at halftime:

I think it's about execution, and you can't really afford to think about any of that or get emotional or think about anything outside of what your job is and that's to execute and focus on one play at a time and being right there in that play and making sure you're taking advantage of it and making good decisions, giving guys chances to make plays. That was my focus and I thought we did that well as a team.

On whether Jones had to address the team after his late touchdown got called back:

No, I don't think so. I think we all knew where it was and knew what the task at hand was. We got a resilient, tough-minded group, so we trust everyone to get back focused and know what they got to do to make the play.

On whether he felt like he missed some opportunities:

Yeah, I think so. There were some throws that I'd like to have back and then a couple of things I got to see better and read out. So, definitely look to improve those situations going forward.

On seeing RB Saquon Barkley's injury late in the game:

It's always tough to see anyone go down, especially Saquon. He's a huge piece of what we're doing. He's an important player on the team. So, I know he'll work hard to get back, get through whatever he is going through. Look forward to having him back as soon as possible.

On how Giants Head Coach Brian Daboll handled halftime:

Same as he always does. He definitely preached the urgency we needed and the importance of starting fast in the second half and taking advantage of some opportunities. But he's consistent. He's that fiery, passionate same message he always gives and guys took to it.
