The quarterback injured his Achilles tendon in the third quarter and did not return when the Giants extended their winning streak to three games

CINCINNATI – After losing their starting quarterback, the Giants held a late rally for the Cincinnati Bengals without Joe Burrow

Daniel Jones suffered a thigh injury in the second half of the Giants’ 19:17 win on Sunday. The third straight win put the Giants (4-7) in first place with Washington Football TeamF in the sad NC. East and comes after losing the top five under first year head coach Joe Judge

It remains to be seen when or if Jones will return to meet the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday for a magnetic resonance imaging test to be performed on Monday

“I’m not going to say I’m optimistic right now,” Judge said after the game, “No, I don’t want to go ahead or say yes or no because I don’t have any medical information. You know I’m sure he will try what he can ”

Jones fell in a 10-10 draw after a brief pass in the third quarter. He returned for two games in the next series but was then relieved by backup Colt McCoy

“I’m certainly not discouraged,” Jones said, “You know, I think it’s difficult to say exactly what it is right now”

Wayne Gallman ran back for a six-yard touchdown in the first quarter and scored a touchdown in five consecutive games This was the longest such streak for the Giants since Saquon Barkley in five consecutive games in 2018.Gallman, who secured the starting job after Barkley and Devonta Freeman were injured, scored three touchdowns in his first three seasons and finished at 24 Runs for 94 yards against Cincinnati

Brandon Allen, who was promoted from the training team, started at quarterback for the Bengals (2-8-1) instead of the dynamic Burrow who sustained a knee injury at the end of the season in last week’s loss to Washington

Allen couldn’t keep the Bengals moving. He was 17-for-29 for 136 yards, and Cincinnati only amassed 155 yards of offense. It wasn’t all his fault: the passes were dropped and with Joe Mixon in the injured reserve the Giants didn’t have to worry about a Cincinnati run game, the Bengals went out four times, three and three times, and killed rides by fumbling twice

Still, the Bengals had a chance too late. A 1-yard touchdown pass from Allen to Tee Higgins – triggered by a pass interference penalty in the end zone – put the team 2:33 within two points remaining points

Cincinnati got the ball back, but Allen fumbled when he was released 57 seconds ahead to seal it for the Giants

“We never got our rhythm, our first-down efficiency really got us,” said Cincinnati coach Zac Taylor. “We were in many seconds and eighths, seconds and nines, seconds and ten, whatever it felt like , and that’s not a great recipe for that defense””

One of the few highlights in Bengals came in the first quarter after Gallman’s goal was scored by a 53-yard pass from Jones to Evan Engram. The next whistle, Brandon Wilson took the ball from three meters in the end zone, found a seam in the middle and rumbled for a touchdown of 103 yards, the longest in franchise history

Before leaving with the injury, Jones was 16 for 27 for 213 yards Engram caught six passes for 129 yards

“I don’t think you can compare this year to any other year,” said the judge. “However, I’m proud of our players and the way our players work. I’m proud of the improvement that is made they have scored I take pride in the way they get to work every day ”
