New York Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones is dominating NFL jersey sales since his first career start.

According to Darren Rovell, the former Duke star had more of his jerseys sold in the two hours after his win over the Bucs than anybody had all day other than Patrick Mahomes. (RELATED: Daniel Jones Dominates Against The Buccaneers In First NFL Start)

Jones finished the day first in sales, and the Kansas City Chiefs star finished second.

I can’t say I’m surprised at all. The Giants have a huge fanbase, Jones dominated against the Bucs, there’s excitement in the air and that’s the perfect formula to move some merchandise.

It’s so crystal clear that Jones is the face of football in New York, and that means people are going to want to represent.

It’s really cool to see Jones out here playing well. I’ll be the first to admit that I was skeptical as all hell when he was drafted sixth overall.

I thought it was an atrocious pick, especially with Dwayne Haskins on the board. We obviously don’t know how good the former OSU star will be just yet, but it’s clear that Jones was greatly underestimated.

It should be fun to see how Jones does going forward. In the meantime, he’ll have to keep moving some merchandise.
