It’s got to be getting old now for the New York ‘football’ Giants. After their 37-18 loss on Monday Night Football, it’s now been six in a row that they have dropped to the Dallas Cowboys. It had started oh so well for them as well, intercepting Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott on his first pass of the game and then scoring a field goal to go up 3-0. Dallas answered back with one of their own to close out the first quarter, but the Giants then put up nine points consecutively in the second.
Dallas, of course, would respond by putting up ten of their own within the last minute of the half, allowing them to take a 13-12 lead. The two teams traded field goals again in the third, but the fourth quarter is where the Cowboys took control. They would go on to score three touchdowns, outscoring the Giants 21-3 in the closing 15 minutes to grab the big win. Prescott finished the day with three touchdown tosses and 257 yards on 22-35 passing. Ezekiel Elliott also had a big night, rushing for 139 yards, while Amari Cooper had four catches for a TD and 80 yards. It’s been said that if all three of them play well, the Cowboys will be unbeatable. This pretty much proved just that. Dallas are now 5-3 on the season, while the Giants are languishing at 2-7.
