Two young QB’s will enter their second season in the NFL with loads of pressure. For Drew Lock and the Denver Broncos, it’s a question of if Lock can build off his stunning finish to his rookie season. Another player to keep an eye on is Daniel Jones of the New York Giants. Can he put the pieces together and lead this young team?
But if we had to break it down, who will have the better season in 2020? Will it be Jones or Lock?
In 2019, Jones took over for Eli Manning. And while he did encounter some rough times and ever harsher criticism from the New York media, Jones still performed considerably well in his first year in the NFL. In 12 starts, Jones passed for 3027 yards, completed 61.9 percent of his passes while tossing 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
The New York Giants struggled all season as they finished 4-12. While they do have holes to fill on the offensive side, it all starts with Jones.
On the other side of the coin is Drew Lock. Lock began the season watching former Super Bowl-winning QB Joe Flacco lead the offense for the first half of the season then watched as backup Brandon Allen took over before he went down. When Lock was given the starting nod, he excelled and so did the Broncos.
In his five starts, the Broncos went a staggering 4-1 with the rookie at the helm. Lock would finish the season passing for 1020 yards while completing 64.1 percent of his passes and tossing seven touchdowns along with three interceptions.
With 2019 behind them, how will Drew Lock and Daniel Jones fair in 2020? And most importantly, who will have the better season?
