Cowboys Contain Giants 20-13, Send New York to 0-2
The Dallas Cowboys scored just eight points last week in a loss to Panthers. They weren't much better on offense last night, but the Giants were even worse. This game was over early thanks to a lot of no-gain run plays and check downs that milked the clock, and we're thankful for that. Don't be fooled -- this was a 20-3 Cowboys' lead in the 4th quarter before some garbage points.
Giants Need Juice
New York QB Eli Manning was average (279 yards and 1 touchdown), but the Giants still can't find a way to block for him. They have an abismal two touchdowns in two games. The Cowboys' defensive line sacked Manning six times and forced a fumble. The No. 2 overall pick in the draft, running back Saquon Barkley ran for a measly 28 yards on 11 carries. He did catch 14 passes for 80 yards, though. That's the only way New York could get him the football and give him a chance to make plays.
Defense in Dallas
Dak Prescott threw for just 160 yards and one touchdown (64 and the TD on one play to Tavon Austin). Ezekiel Elliot ran for 78 yards and another score, but it was the Cowboys defense who looks to be the star in Big D. They gave up 16 points to the Panthers last week and just 13 points this week. That's 5th in the league through two weeks.
The NFC East is the only division where every team has a loss through two weeks.
