New York Jets safety Jamal Adams trolled New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones after the game. Here are all the juicy details.
The New York Jets won the Battle for New York vs the Giants on Sunday 34-27.
A big reason for that was Jamal Adams having arguably the best game of his career.
Adams led the team in tackles (nine), eight of those solo, two sacks, two tackles for loss, one pass deflection, two quarterback hits, and a defensive touchdown.
How did he put six points on the board for the green and white? The Jets official Twitter account provides the assist:

It was a game-changing moment early in the third quarter.
The Jets got off to a quick 14-0 lead before the Giants started to make a rally. With the game’s momentum hanging in the balance, a big-time player made a big-time play.
Daniel Jones finished with a sexy stat line: 26-of-40, 308 passing yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions. But it wasn’t as pretty as it looked.
Jamal Adams literally took the ball away from Jones and took it 25 yards back to the house. If that wasn’t embarrassing enough, after the game Adams took the trolling to another level on social media with some help from a guy who lives in a pineapple under the sea.

One of the big underlying storylines in this game was the matchup between the two young quarterbacks in Daniel Jones and Sam Darnold.
With Adams’ help, DJ continued to show a propensity for turning the ball over. While Sam Darnold showed grit, determination, and promise.
Darnold finished 19-of-30 from the field for 230 yards and two touchdowns (one on the ground and one through the air), but the most important statistic was his turnover-free game.
At 2-7, the Jets still believe they have a chance at the postseason if they win out. While that would be amazing, this season no longer hinders on wins and losses, whether 2019 is deemed as a success or failure should purely be based on Sam Darnold’s development.
If his arrow is pointing up heading into 2020, this wild Jets season was a success. If he has regressed and questions about his future remain, this season was all for naught.
