Giants' Jones: Golladay outburst wasn't directed at me

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones doesn't believe Kenny Golladay targeted him with his sideline tantrum during Thursday Night Football.

"I think he was frustrated with the situation, but I don't think it was to me or anyone in particular," Jones said after the Giants' heartbreaking 30-29 loss to the Washington Football Team. "We're all good. I love Kenny, I thought he played hard and did a lot of good things out there."

Golladay was seen shouting in Jones' direction late in the fourth quarter after the Giants responded to a Washington go-ahead touchdown with an uneventful series that yielded a punt.

Golladay, the Giants' marquee offseason acquisition, finished the contest with only three receptions for 38 yards. The former Detroit Lions star has seven catches for 108 yards on the season.

"I've got to do a better job of finding him in some places and we'll work through it," Jones said.

Jones added he and Golladay spoke after the game and are on good terms. Giants head coach Joe Judge said he saw the two hugging in the locker room and wasn't aware of the sideline saga.

Golladay didn't speak to reporters postgame, but fellow wide receiver Sterling Shepard downplayed the explosion.

"I think you guys have that all mixed up. Kenny was just heated at the situation. We needed some big plays and he was heated at the situation," he said. "We all love each other. That's what happens in this game, your emotions get into it and you say what you've got to say and you move on. We all love each other, we dap it up at the end of the day, give each other a hug and keep on pushing. That is the way that stuff goes."

The Giants, who are 0-2 for the fifth consecutive season, will face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3.
