The Dallas Cowboys got the football first in Sunday’s confrontation with the New York Giants, yet the Giants shockingly scored first. In the wake of constraining a punt following an underthrown and fruitless third-down change, the Giants went on a seven-play, 91-yard touchdown drive. The lead didn’t keep going long. Dak Prescott went off with three touchdown goes to finish off the principal half with 21 unanswered points.
At that point, it was all Cowboys, all the time as they moved to a 35-17 win over their division rivals. In a game that escaped hand halfway through the second from last quarter, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott tossed only seven passes goes to go with his four touchdown passes and 405 passing yards. Prescott was so overwhelming the Cowboys didn’t need to give Ezekiel Elliott his typical remaining task at hand, as the running back came back to the group from his holdout short of what multi week prior.
The Cowboys totaled 494 yards of offense and the Giants weren’t too a long ways behind them with 470. In spite of totaling only 24 less yards, the Giants set up only 17 – and that included one last drive in what we like to call “trash” time – the group previously trailing by 25. Together, the two groups totaled 964 yards of offense.
The Giants neglected to change over on third down and they neglected to stop the Cowboys on the other side. They likewise neglected to compel any turnovers notwithstanding submitting two of their own. The wonderful finish for the Giants was their absence of accomplishment in the red zone where they changed over on only two of four shots. That is a catastrophe waiting to happen in the NFL, and it’s nothing unexpected this was one of the most unbalanced games on the Week 1 record.
