Kay Adams video with New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones went viral this past week.
On Sunday, Jones and his squad faced off against Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys. It was a highly-scrutinized game that many believed would offer a glimpse into what sort of campaigns each team would have in 2023.
When it was all said and done, Dallas walked out of MetLife Stadium with a 40-0 victory.
In the aftermath of the Giants’ embarrassing loss to the Cowboys on Sunday night, Adams’ video with Jones went viral all over again.
“He’s been in my shoes. He’s been there most recently, dealt with the same things that I’m dealing with now.”

What’s interesting about that clip is that, while Eli Manning was never the natural talent his brother Peyton was, he had a knack for knowing how to win important games. Jones seems to lack that.
Fresh off receiving a four-year, $160 million contract this summer that many believed he didn’t deserve, this Cowboys game was Jones’ opportunity to prove his doubters wrong.
Instead he put up 104 yards through the air and two picks on 15-of-28 passing.
It’s probably a safe bet that Adams won’t have much reason to have Jones on her show again this season.
Adams, meanwhile, has been in the headlines nonstop as of late. Between her video with Prescott and handsy encounter with Washington Commanders QB Sam Howell, she has become a permanent fixture in the news cycle.
It is pretty telling that in a weekend that saw Erin Andrews’ video with Aaron Rodgers cause such a stir, Adams was able to come along and so expertly steal the headlines away from her.
Big day for the Mayfield family. https://t.co/SwqEag7xdS

Big picture, you never want to read too much into one week of football. The sample size is simply too miniscule. That said, getting blown out by 40 at home doesn’t exactly evoke confidence.
On deck for New York are the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
If the Giants rebound and can win two of those, at least, then maybe this 2023-24 NFL season can be salvaged. Should that not occur, though – this is going to be a long year for Jones and Co.
