Business As Usual For Dallas Cowboys
Finally, business as usual for the Dallas Cowboys beating the New York Giants although it was a slow start. The result most people would have predicted and I thought this division opponent would keep Dallas occupied early which they did. Ultimately, Dallas prevailed rather easily with the defense tallying a scoop and score for the nail in the coffin.
Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys offense did what they do versus the New York Giants as he threw for 3 touchdowns and over 250 yards. Ezekiel Elliott ran for 139 yards as well. The best highlight came from Michael Gallup who tight-roped down the sidelines and leaped into the end zone!
The Dallas defense kept the New York Giants offense at bay all night stymieing Saquon Barkley to 28 rushing yards and rookie quarterback Daniel Jones running for cover as he was pressured all evening. The bend but don't break approach worked well for the Cowboys with the Giants only amassing 271 total yards. This is the kind of effort that this team needs to make a run through the playoffs and to get to Miami.
Coming back to AT&T Stadium should keep the momentum going for Dallas as they prepare for the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The schedule becomes more difficult as the weeks progress. If the Cowboys play with the same intensity and execution, they will be competitive throughout the rest of the season.
