Giants quarterback Daniel Jones made one of the craziest plays of this NFL season when he broke into the clear, ran past the Eagles’ entire defense, and then with a clear path to the end zone just fell to the ground at the 8-yard line.

Afterward, Jones didn’t know quite what to say about the play, which lit up social media.

“I was just trying to run faster than I was running and got caught up,” Jones said, via Newsday.

According to the NFL’s Next Gen Stats, Jones reached a speed of 21.23 miles per hour, fastest of any quarterback in the NFL this season.

The Giants did end up scoring a touchdown on the drive, which let Jones off the hook.

“That was a relief,” Jones said.

The touchdown made it easier to laugh about the play, which many of Jones’ teammates were doing on the Giants’ sideline.
