The Daniel Jones era officially begins on Sunday.
And while it may be earlier than many people expected, the sixth-overall pick will take over the reins of the Giants' offense from Eli Manning as the team faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
As SNY's Ralph Vacchiano notes, though, Giants fans shouldn't expect it to always be a smooth ride with a rookie under center.
"The Giants will start a rookie at quarterback on Sunday in Tampa for the first time since 2004, and if all goes well, Daniel Jones will end up starting 14 games. Of course, the reality is that things are not likely to all go well, or at least they won't all go smoothly, because rookie quarterbacks struggle," says Vacchiano.
"The reality is that this going to be an up-and-down ride. There will be some great moments for Jones and moments that will make people scratch their head, because defensive coordinators get very excited when they have to design a defense and a scheme against a rookie quarterback."
