No. 2: The 49ers defense was effective in forcing turnovers, Jamal Adams is incredibly effective at doing just that

Jamal Adams stole New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones’ money in the Week 10 game between Adams’ Jets and Jones’ Giants.

Jones would be happy if he didn’t have to face Adams for another four years, unless both teams make it to the Super Bowl before then, but that’s not going to happen.

Adams was a pain for the Giants, and specifically Jones in this game. Adams destroyed the run and pass game with his exceptional play. Adams showcased his full ability in this game, and he set the tone in the first quarter of the game with a strip-sack of Jones.

Adams is lined up outside the Giants’ tight end who is off the line of scrimmage but next to the Giants’ left tackle. The Jets have four down linemen, however Adams has started to creep down to the line of scrimmage, suggesting Adams will be blitzing. Jones identifies this and communicates with his offensive line and running back to get them into the correct pass protection. At the end of the day, that was a waste of time as the Giants running back Saquon Barkley had no chance at blocking Adams, who had an incredible get off off the line of scrimmage.

Adams goes straight through Barkley and forces the fumble, only for the ball to fall into Barkley’s hands.

The Giants should have learned their lesson, but they didn’t.
