Daniel Jones threw a touchdown pass to cap his lone drive and the New York Giants held on for a 21-19 win over the Carolina Panthers on Friday in East Rutherford, N.J.

Jones was fully in control while marching the Giants 75 yards in 10 plays to open the game. He completed 8 of 9 passes for 69 yards and ran once for 6 yards. Jones connected with Daniel Bellinger for a 4-yard touchdown to open the scoring.
