Andrew Thomas protects Daniel Jones’ blind side. Now he also catches touchdowns from his quarterback.
The Giants’ left tackle made a bouncing overhead 2-yard TD catch in Monday night’s game in Tampa Bay to tie the game with 10 pieces.
Thomas had gotten a 2-point conversion from Jones in Week 5 of Dallas during his rookie season in 2020. But it was sweeter to secure six points Monday in his first game after injured reserve.
Thomas’ offensive linemates joined him in a festive party dance, something they had obviously planned for the occasion, knowing that this was in the game plan.
Joe Judge actually got his offensive linemen to catch passes during individual practices at Saturday’s practice. So here it was to emerge in a game that counts.
