Two-Minute Drill: Cowboys Beat Giants, Garrett Wrecks Car

Jonathan Grant | September 27th, 2022

1st Down: The Dallas Cowboys have taken the early season superiority over the New York Giants, doing so on Monday Night Football this week with a 23-16 win on the road. With Cooper Rush under center, they won for his third consecutive outing thanks to solid performances from running back Tony Pollard (13 carries for 105 yards) and wide receiver CeeDee Lamb (eight catches for 87 yards and a TD). The touchdown grab from Lamb was phenomenal; a one-handed catch that put them up for what proved to be good. Trevon Diggs’ interception of Daniel Jones with just over a minute to go sealed it, pushing both teams to 2-1 through three games this campaign.

2nd Down: Myles Garrett, it appears, has emerged relatively unscathed and fortunate following a one-car accident on after practice ended for the Cleveland Browns on Monday. The defensive end did have to go to the hospital after flipping his Porsche, but only ‘minor’ injuries have been reported at this time and his agent did confirm that he was responsive. While the investigation is still ongoing by police, they do not suspect drug use. The Browns face the Atlanta Falcons this weekend.

3rd Down: Jae Crowder, amid an agreement with the Phoenix Suns that will allow him to find a trade partner to join, did not go to NBA media day as part of the team on Monday, further giving ammunition to rumors and forcing the team to respond. The team confirmed previous reports while new sources indicate that a few teams are interested in landing the forward. The Miami Heat, Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks, and Memphis Grizzlies are said to be piqued, so we will see where his landing spot ends up being.

4th Down: Jimmie Johnson is retiring as a full-time driver. That news came out, seemingly in dejavu fashion, on Monday as it was announced he would not be returning to Chip Ganassi’s Indycar team full-time for 2023. Johnson, a seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, ran the full Indycar schedule in 2022 and had disappointing results. He is now set to run ‘bucket list’ races according to his statement, so he is not completely retired as of yet. One speculated bucket list item is running the ‘double’ that consists of the Indy 500 and the 600 mile race at Charlotte. We’ll see if that comes together as well as what else the veteran comes up with to race.
