New York was down 13 in the third quarter and in the red zone with a chance to make it a one possession game, but Jones lost a fumble and it was curtains from then on.

On Monday, the Football Team signed Kyle Shurmur to their practice squad, but Taylor Heinicke will be the starter in this game. Heinicke can run the ball and should be able to open up the offense for running back Antonio Gibson and wide receiver Terry McLaurin to put up bigger numbers.
