Kevin Jonas, like most New York Giants fans, found optimism in the 2022 season. The team entered the playoffs with little to no expectations and seemed to have built a foundation for the future.
While it’s unclear if Daniel Jones or Saquon Barkley, two mainstays of the organization for the past five years, will return to the team in 2023, Jonas told Fox News Digital in a recent interview that he was happy with the way the season turned out. . .
«We’re Giants fans,» Jonas said of him and his famous family. «We’re very happy with the team this year. I think they surprised everybody. Danny Dimes did his thing and of course our guy Saquon. He was great.»

The Teaneck, New Jersey, native explained to Fox News Digital that his fandom for the Giants runs deep.
The Giants were heavy losers when they faced the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII at University of Phoenix Stadium, ironically, where Super Bowl LVII will take place on February 12, although it is now known as State Farm Stadium. . He said the Jonas Brothers had a concert that day and they made sure it was a matinee so they could get a chance to see New York beat the Patriots. He added that it was then that his now-wife, Danielle, knew the Giants meant a lot to him.
«One of our favorite memories is that Super Bowl, you know, the infamous helmet catch,» Jonas told Fox News Digital. «We had a concert that night in California and we had a show and we changed the time of the show to make it a matinee on Super Bowl Sunday so we can watch the Giants game. And we turned our stage into screens and had that as our setup. So that was great. I think at that moment she knew how important it was to us.»
Next week, Jonas will be able to watch his friend Patrick Mahomes take on the Philadelphia Eagles in a bid to win his second Super Bowl ring. Mahomes enters the game banged up dealing with a high ankle sprain in the AFC Championship. Still, he managed to help the Chiefs beat the Cincinnati Bengals and return to the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons.
The Jonas Brothers rocker was sure Mahomes could play well.

Jonas spoke to Fox News Digital inside State Farm Stadium in what appeared to be a suite converted from a hotel room. It was just that.
