Unfortunately for New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, he’ll forever be on blooper sports reals after he flubbed what would have been a near 90-yard touchdown run after making the opposition defense look absolutely silly.
Instead of taking it to the house, Jones tripped over his own two feet. Thankfully for him and the Giants, they were able to score just a few plays later, so it wasn’t a total lost cause.
It didn’t take long for social media users to come up with some absolute gems in response. Take a look at a few of the best ones below:

CBS Sports suggest Detroit Lions make trade involving Marvin Jones Jr.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. has seen his name pop up in trade rumors as he’s entered the final year of a five year contract he signed in 2016. With Kenny Golladay in need of a new contract, Jones could find himself a casualty of the team’s salary cap restraints.
And now, CBS Sports has put forward the latest proposal involving Jones, which would see him head out east.
The proposal? Jones being sent to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for Baltimore’s 2021 sixth-round draft pick and 2022 seventh-round pick.
Check out the reasoning below:
“The Lions can’t really expect much more for Jones at this point in his career, but the Ravens can certainly afford to surrender a few late-rounders if it means giving Lamar Jackson someone other than Marquise Brown as an option out wide. When you’re run-based and have Lamar Jackson, Willie Snead and Devin Duvernay and Miles Boykin will pass. But Baltimore is aiming for a title. Does Jones bring that closer? Not by much, if at all. But the gamble is worth it if he can be even a fraction of his old self amid new scenery.”
Should the Lions not be able to come to terms with Jones on a new deal prior to this year’s NFL Trade Deadline, is this a move you’d like to see them make?
