New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones made his preseason debut on Sunday, finishing 17 of 22 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown. Jones found Kaden Smith on a 23-yard touchdown pass for his first score of the preseason.

Offensive lineman Laken Tomlinson started for San Francisco this weekend and helped the 49ers to a 34-10 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.

Indianapolis Colts running backs Deon Jackson recorded 81 rushing yards in 10 carries with a single scoring and added a three-yard touchdown reception in Friday’s game against Detroit. The Atlanta, Ga. Native led the NFL in week three of the preseason with his last rushed total.
