Patrick Mahomes joins in as social media explodes over Daniel Jones trip

Of course, Daniel Jones’ meeting with the Turf Monster wasn’t going to go unmentioned on Twitter.

The Giants’ second-year quarterback looked like he was on his way to a long touchdown run during the third quarter of Thursday night’s 22-21 loss to the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia until he tripped in the open field with no defenders near him.

He had to settle for an 80-yard dash that began on the 12-yard line and ended with his fall at the 8. Fortunately for Jones, the Giants wound up scoring four plays later on Wayne Gallman’s 1-yard touchdown run that gave them a 14-10 lead at the time.

Though the gaffe didn’t cost Big Blue, it didn’t stop Twitter from exploding. Here’s a sampling of some of the reactions:
