Patrick Peterson: Patriots exposed weaknesses in Daniel Jones' game

Against the New England Patriots in Week 6, New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones struggled. And in watching the film last week, the Arizona Cardinals were able to pinpoint what Bill Belichick & Co. had done to expose a flaw in the rookie’s game.

On Sunday, cornerback Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals’ previously struggling defense carried out that game plan to perfection, leading to the worst game of Jones’ early career.

“We saw that he has some trouble with that two-shell [coverage] against New England,” Peterson told NFL Network’s Kim Jones after the game. “And we tried to not resemble the same game plan, but give him some of those same looks because he had trouble with it 10 days ago.”

In addition to running the two-deep shell and their focus on shutting down the middle of the field, the Cardinals did a great job disguising their formations, including their many stunts, which led to an incredible eight sacks and three turnovers (one interception, two lost fumbles).

“Just close the windows, the middle of the field, and give him some confusing looks,” Peterson said.

In a copycat league, this is bad news for the Giants and Jones. Teams have discovered his kryptonite early and now it’s on the rookie and offensive staff to readjust and find a way to counter-balance what defenses are doing.
