The fourth quarter has proven to be when the Giants are at their best. Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley led another comeback in the final period to get New York to 6-1 on the season after beating the Jaguars 23-17. The Giants rushed for 236 yards in the win — 100 each from Barkley and Jones — as they paced New York in a dominant fourth quarter to win their fourth straight game. 
New York had a scare in the final seconds when Christian Kirk caught a Trevor Lawrence pass inside the 1-yard line with seconds left on the clock, but Fabian Moreau and other defenders prevented him from scoring what would have given Jacksonville the lead with a score and an extra point. Kirk was stopped inside the 1-yard line, and the Giants held on for the win since Jacksonville had no time left on the clock. 
Jones gave the Giants the lead on a 1-yard touchdown run with 5:31 left to cap a 10-play, 79-yard drive to put New York ahead 20-17. That was the Giants’ first lead of the second half. After holding Jacksonville to a three and out, the Giants went on a nine play, 63-yard drive that led to a Graham Gano field goal with 1:04 left to put New York up 23-17. 
Jones rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown to lead the Giants ground game, which helped put up 126 total yards in the fourth quarter. New York trailed 17-13 entering the final frame before using Barkley and Jones to wear down the defense en route to the win. Barkley ran for 72 yards in the final quarter after being shut down the majority of the game, while Jones added 50 yards on the ground in the fourth. 
The Jaguars had chances to extend their lead multiple times in the second half. Trevor Lawrence scored on a 1-yard touchdown to give Jacksonville a 17-13 lead early in the third quarter, but the Jaguars couldn’t preserve the lead. A blocked extra-point attempt and a turnover on downs at the Giants’ 20-yard line in the fourth quarter paved the way for the Giants to come back for another victory.  
Miscues by the Jaguars led to the final result, leading to the Giants going 6-1 for the first time since the 2008 season.
New York played disciplined and efficient football, not turning the ball over and only punting twice the entire game. The Giants also had two key defensive stops in the fourth quarter and rushed for over 120 yards in the final frame. The running game was efficient again, as Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley combined for 227 of the team’s 236 yards while the Giants averaged 6.1 yards per carry. 
The Giants wore down Jacksonville’s defense and used the pass to set up the run, setting the stage for another comeback victory. New York had 150 yards in the fourth quarter on two possessions — scoring 10 points. The Giants continue to shine late in games as the Giants don’t beat themselves. 
The Jaguars made too many miscues to beat New York and take a victory. Travis Etienne fumbled at the Jaguars’ 5-yard line in an 11-7 game that would have led to points and extended Jacksonville’s first-half lead. That was Jacksonville’s lone turnover of the game. 
Jacksonville also failed to convert a third-and-1 and a fourth-and-1 at the New York 20-yard line in the fourth quarter, which led to a turnover on downs and the Giants getting the ball back. Both red zone miscues led to six total points by the Giants on the ensuing possessions. A missed extra point after a touchdown in the second half negated a two-point conversion earlier in the game. 
Situational football cost the Jaguars. 
Jacksonville drove to the New York 20-yard line with a 17-13 lead and an opportunity to extend it. Etienne took a direct snap on third-and-1 and was stopped short of the first down — or was he? 
Doug Pederson didn’t challenge the spot and went for it on fourth-and-1 at the 20 instead of kicking the 38-yard field goal. Trevor Lawrence was stopped short on the quarterback sneak with 11:28 left and the Giants got the ball back. New York scored the go-ahead touchdown on the ensuing drive to take a 20-17 lead.
The Giants have the ball back after a big stop!

In a six-point game, a field goal would have made a huge difference. 
The final play of the game takes the cake here. Fabian Moreau made sure the Giants improved to 6-1 by tackling Christian Kirk just shy of the goal line, preventing Jacksonville’s best receiver from crossing the plane in the final seconds.
Lawrence threw a dart across the middle of the field to Kirk that resulted in a 16-yard gain. Kirk tried for 17 and the end zone, but Moreau was right there to make the tackle and get Kirk down with no time left on the clock. 
What a wild ending in Jacksonville 😳 #NYGvsJAX
No tackle by Moreau, and the Jaguars are kicking an extra point for the win. 
“He played good again. He played the way we needed to play.” — Giants head coach Brian Daboll on how Daniel Jones played. 
Jones finished 19 of 30 for 202 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions (94.0 rating) while rushing for 107 yards and a score in the win. He had his fifth game-winning drive of the season as well. 
The Giants (6-1) travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks next week while the Jaguars (2-5) head to London to face the Broncos next Sunday. 
Christian Kirk catches the ball inside the 1-yard line in a 23-17 game — but Fabian Moreau keeps him out of the end zone with no time left!
Giants stop the Jaguars at the 1-yard line! They go to 6-1.
Wild, crazy finish to a weird game. 
Third down now. At Giants 17 with 7 seconds left. 2 plays here. 
Marvin Jones catches the ball on 4th-and-15 — AND WE HAVE A ROUGHING THE PASSER. 28-yard pass play plus a 15-yard penalty puts the Jaguars deep in Giants territory with 16 seconds left
The Giants have Jacksonville on the ropes here, but penalties keep getting in the way. Fabian Moreau had an INT to seal the win — but a holding penalty gave Jacksonville the ball back. Jaguars need a TD here with 32 seconds left. 
This is MVP like from Saquon barkley in the fourth quarter. He’s beasting this worn down Jaguars defense. Barkley up to 21 carries for 106 yards against a good run defense. 
Trevor Lawrence missed Christian Kirk wide open on 1st-and-15. Would have easily been a 30-yard gain into Giants territory. 
Daniel Jones. Keeper. TD.
Another efficient day for DJ as he’s looking for his 5th GW drive of the year. Jones is fired up as the Ginats take a 20-17 lead. That extra point looms large now. 
Saquon Barkley is a cheat code on that jump cut. Ginats are in business in Jaguars territory. 18 carries for 66 yards on a bad shoulder. 
So the Giants are down Evan Neal, Daniel Bellinger, and Adoree Jackson. That’s their starting RT, TE, and CB — and they are only down 4 with the ball.
Can New York pull off another miracle? How can they keep this up? 
Doug Pederson is not happy with that failed 4th-and-1. Thought the Giants had the first down on third down and didn’t review the spot. Jaguars get nothing when they had 3 in the bag. 
Very methodical drive by the Jaguars here, but they’re in position to get a FG right now. A TD here and the Giants will be in trouble — but we all know they’ve overcome double-digit deficits three times already this year. 
This game is going really slow. Lots of challenges and not a lot of excitement. Conservative football, but well executed. 
Yes this could have been caught. Daniel Jones has every right to be upset. 
“CATCH THE BALL” 🤬 Daniel Jones is PISSED
The Giants go for it on 4th and 2 from the Jaguars 3, but Daniel Jones’ pass is incomplete to Marcus Johnson. I would have taken the points there. 
It’s still 17-13 Jaguars. 
Rare Daniel Jones iNT. Devin Lloyd with the pick, but this is coming back. Roughing the passer. Can’t launch at the head of the QB. Oloukun the culprit as the interception taken away leads to New York in the red zone. 
This was the roughing the passer call by Dexter Lawrence in question. Heads up, this was not roughing the passer. 
Dexter Lawrence was called for a roughing the passer penalty on this
The extra point was deflected , so there goes Doug’s conversion from the first half. It’s 17-13 now, so Giants still need a TD to take the lead. 
Thought Trevor Lawrence got over the goal line there on 3rd-and-2 at the 2, but he did get the first down. Next play, scores.
Jaguars take the lead. 
Travis Etienne. RB1
7 carries for 92 yards and a TD today.
Good decision by Daniel Jones to throw that ball away on 3rd-and-4. Take the points. I like this Daniel Jones — no fumbles and smart with the football. 
Travis Etienne had the TD, but fumbled the ball two yards short of the end zone and Julian Love picked it up. Just a terrible end to a great possession by the Jaguars.
Wonder why the Giants win? They don’t beat themselves. 
Wan’Dale Robinson also limed off on that last drive. 6 catches for 50 yards on 7 targets in the first half.  
Give the Giants credit for moving the ball with Neal out and getting the FG. The hurry-up offense and creative play designs are paying dividends. Daboll working with what he has. 
Evan Neal OUT for the Giants (knee). Had to reshuffle the O-Line with Neal out. Joshua Ezeudu in at left guard and left guard Be Bredeson move sto RT. 
Wan’Dale Robinson is everything the Giants hoped Kadarius Toney would be. 39 total yards in the first half. 17 rushing, 22 receiving. 
Still liking the aggressiveness by the Jaguars as they get a FG on this drive. Lawrence had James Robinson in the end zone, but the few looked a bit too far. Evan Engram also was thrown a pass in the end zone only to be broken up. 
Promising drive results in points. 11-7 Jaguars in 2Q. 
Doug Pederson has been aggressive twice in this first quarter.
2-point attempt — Good
4th down attempt from Giants 27 — Good
The #Giants WRs were a problem that drive. Two dropped passes by Marcus Johnson and Richie James cost NY an opportunity to extend the dive.
Darious Williams may have gotten his hand in there on the James incompletion. Jacksonville gets ball back after Giants drive stalls. 
The offsides penalty by Josh Allen cost Jacksonville’s defense an opportunity to get off teh field. Daniel Jones Finds Wen’Dale Robinson on 3-and-3 to give the Giants a first down and extend the drive. Jacksonville biting themselves in the foot with penalties.  
Switch that, the Jaguars will go for 2 after an illegal formation penalty on the Giants. Doug Pederson goes for 2 and dials up a handoff to Travis Etienne and he scores. Jags up 8-7.
