It didn't take long for Daniel Jones to win the hearts and minds of New York Giants fans - and seemingly, the New York media. There's no better example of that than when the two Giants quarterbacks sauntered through the tunnels beneath MetLife Stadium before their game today against the Washington Redskins.

Yes, that's Eli Manning, two-time Super Bowl MVP, being completely ignored as if he wasn't even there by three different camera men, as the new kid in town, Daniel Jones, gets swarmed by the cameras. I mean, he's even walking past the murals from the Super Bowls he's won. Give Manning some love.

It's hard to even recall now that Jones was booed as his name was called at the NFL Draft in April. So far, with a stellar preseason and last week's come-from-behind win, Jones has made Giant fans forget they ever doubted him.
