Washington keeps bringing out the best in Daniel Jones originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

It doesn't matter how bad the Giants are, the Washington Football Team just somehow finds a way to bring out the best in them, especially Daniel Jones. 

After Sunday's 23-20 loss, Washington helped keep New York (laughably) improve in the NFC East race to 2-7, while Washington (also laughably) is kind of in the mix too at 2-6. 

The bigger issue though, is that apparently, Jones turns into a Pro Bowler every time they meet.

Jones has turned the ball over in 20 of his 22 starts in the NFL and both times he didn't turn it over happened against -- you guessed it -- Washington. 

Entering Sunday's matchup, defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio emphasized the importance of forcing turnovesr, going as far as to dubpractice "Turnover Thursday." But for the second-time this season, Del Rio's talented defense was unable to force turnovers from Jones.

Oh, and he's 4-0 against Washington too, but just 1-17 against everyone else. 

2020 continues to be a frustrating year for this football team, and Sunday's loss was just another example that many tough Sundays are likely ahead for Ron Rivera and his rebuilding club.
