Another season another injury to Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott. 1-1 Dallas facing 2-0 Giants without their star QB who suffered a thumb fracture against Tampa on opening day. Unlike the previous injury suffered two seasons back, this one is not that serious should have him back in two shakes. However, Dalls fans need not worry, back up Cooper Rush did well in this one throwing a success rate of 68%.Giants have tightened up their defense in the first two weeks, key to them entering 2-0 in this one, conceding less than 20 points average. Both defenses in fact deserve special mention , particularly in the fist half. Watch the block from Cowboys’ Armstrong on 07:45 left in the first to save 3 points at 4th down. Desperation to get on the board from New York? Now contrast with 02:38 this time Dallas on the football for the 3 point kick. Brett Maher well shielded by the ROBUST defense, such moments key to outcome of matches. 6-3 Dallas going into the second half.

First TD of the game going to the Giants. Giants QB Daniel Jones’s strength over his opposing QB Rush was that Jones had BETTER rushing stats. 96 yards that he got indicate ability to see gaps in defense, makes up for shortcomings in throwing(196 yards). Watch the start of third Q. Back to the aforementioned first TD, more than what New York deserved for holding possession so well. Saquon Barkley with a 40 yard dash to the EZ, diagonal running is the key to this 6 points although due credit must go to that defense again. If there is a player who has Dallas’s back in terms of TD scoring and yards its CeeDee Lamb. The Wide Receiver’s 87 yards is second high only to teammate Pollard’s 105. However it was Zeik Elliott with the crucial TD to tie the game with the third winding down, Cowboys too hot and close to the EZ for the otherwise strong. The decisive moment of the game? Yes , the drive from Dallas on 09:20 in the 4th Q finished off the you guess it CeeDee who got hit just a yard from the EZ. Cowboys didn’t need the other 3 Downs as they did the business on 1st and Goal, Lamb stretching to catch with the one hander. Still early days in the season but if you must know CHECK OUT the NFC standings below. Philly ruling the division 3-0 but the newly named Washington Commanders(we can’t say Redskins no more lol) not in command of NFC just yet.
