Cowboys Drubbing Of Giants On Sunday Night Football

Such as a Super Bowl! Cowboys destroy Giants to win a statement game. To make a statement to the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys thrashed the divisional rival New York Giants on Sunday Night Football.

Star linebacker Micah Parsons compared the significance of the Dallas Cowboys’ season opener against the New York Giants to that of the Super Bowl.

With a 40-0 thrashing of their NFC East rivals on “Sunday Night Football,” the Cowboys played as though a title was on the line. The Cowboys’ victory over the Giants in this game is their biggest since they won 52-7 at Dallas in 1966.

After the convincing victory, Dak Prescott remarked that “this belongs to the defense.”

The Cowboys didn’t really do anything particularly noteworthy on offense. With 265 total yards and 18 first downs, their offensive performance was respectable but not very noteworthy.

Despite this, the offense didn’t need to play above their level given how well the defense played. The Giants’ offense was completely neutralized by the Cowboys, who only allowed 174 total yards and 14 first downs. Dallas also had five forced fumbles with one recovery, five sacks, two interceptions, including a pick six by safety DaRon Bland.

Dallas’ pass-rush was possibly the night’s most impressive unit, which is saying a lot. While Dorance Armstrong and Asa Odigihizuwa each had two sacks, Parsons, DeMarcus Lawrence, and Chauncey Golston each had one. The Cowboys had 11 quarterback hits as a team for the evening.

On Sunday night, Dallas’ special teams also performed admirably. On their first drive, the Giants attempted to score a field goal to take the lead, but the Cowboys blocked it, and newly acquired cornerback Noah Igbinoghene returned it 58 yards for a touchdown.

Dallas kicker Brandon Aubrey made two of two field goals and four of five extra points in his NFL debut while New York missed its only other field goal attempt of the game.

Dak Prescott, the quarterback for the Cowboys, had a somewhat quiet game with 13 completions on 24 attempts for 143 yards, but again, he didn’t really need to do much… and by not turning the ball over, he avoided his 2022 bugaboo of interceptions.

Even better, Cooper Rush, the backup quarterback who finished the game, got to rest for the majority of the fourth quarter. Tony Pollard, the running back, put up a strong performance, gaining 70 yards and two scores on just 14 carries.

There were basically no gains for New York, especially on offense. Daniel Jones, the quarterback, had a terrible game, completing only 15 of his 28 passes for 104 yards and two interceptions. Saquon Barkley, another running back, didn’t do much better, managing only 51 yards on 12 carries.

On September 17, Aaron Rodgers and the Jets will visit the Cowboys’ home stadium, and no, unlike this game, that matchup won’t be “like a Super Bowl.” But what if the Cowboys keep performing at this level? It’s possible that Micah Parsons and his buddies are meant to someday go through it.
