The former Duke Football quarterback Daniel Jones struggled against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon in a snowy and rainy MetLife Stadium.

In his first snow game of his football career, Daniel Jones struggled on Sunday afternoon against the Green Bay Packers on the first snowfall of the winter in New Jersey.

The former Duke Blue Devil saw his New York Giants team outclassed by Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, falling 31-13 which dropped the Giants to 2-10 on the season.

Jones completed 20-of-37 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown but tied a career-high with three interceptions on the afternoon. Daniel Jones also threw three interceptions in a loss to the New England Patriots earlier in the season.

On the ground Jones gained six yards on five attempts and did fumble on Sunday, but it was recovered by the Giants.

Daniel Jones connected with Sterling Shepard on the second drive of the game for the Giants on a 18-yard touchdown pass which tied the score at 7-7.

Green Bay followed the Giants touchdown with a touchdown of its own and Jones then threw his first interception of the day on New York's ensuing possession.

A field goal on the first possession of the second half for the Giants would cut the Packers lead to 17-13, but four points is the closest the Giants would get for the rest of the game as Green Bay scored 14 unanswered points to end the game.

Daniel Jones will get his first taste of the Philadelphia Eagles and its fans as Jones will make his second career start on ESPN's Monday Night Football next week.

Jones and the Giants lost in the rookie's MNF debut to the Dallas Cowboys back on November 4 but will try and get back in the win column on December 9 at 8:15pm EST against the Eagles.
