Play Index Spotlight: Daniel Jones

The New York Giants decided to start the Daniel Jones era early, giving him his first career NFL start in Week 3. That debut ended in a thrilling go-ahead 7-yard rushing TD from Jones. Jones finished the game with over 300 passing yards, 2 pass TDs and 2 rush TDs. Since 1950, the only 2 quarterbacks to pass and rush for multiple touchdowns in their first career start are Jones and Eric Hipple in 1981.

Play Index Spotlight: Darren Waller

Fantasy players may be pleasantly surprised by the rise of Darren Waller as Oakland's top tight end. What follows is a list of most receptions by tight ends through the first 3 games of the season, showing Waller is second only to Antonio Gates in 2007 at this point in the season. Notably, Waller is the only player at the top of the list without a touchdown. It's also worth pointing out that Evan Engram is also racking up receptions this year for the Giants, with 23 receptions so far.

Play Index Spotlight: Shaq Barrett

On the September 13th edition of the Pro Football Stathead newsletter, we included a segment about Shaquil Barrett's 3 sacks on Thursday Night Football, and he followed that up yesterday with a 4 sack game against the Giants. Barrett now has 8 sacks through the first 3 games of the season. Since 1982 when the sack was first officially tracked, only Mark Gastineau in 1984 had that many sacks this early in the season. Gastineau would go on to set a then-record of 22 sacks that year.

Here's the list of players with at least 7 sacks through the first 3 games of the season since 1982.
