Heroes, zeros and the full blitz for the Giants’ loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott did whatever he felt like against the Giants defense all game.
By halftime, Prescott was 18 of 24 for 239 yards with two TD passes and a rushing TD. He finished 26 of 35 for 404 yards, four TDs, one INT.
Cowboys receiver Brandin Cooks entered the game with very modest stats — 17 catches for 154 yards and two TDs.
In the first half alone, he caught seven passes for 104 yards and a TD and finished with nine catches for 173 yards and the TD.
Yes, Giants rookie free-agent quarterback Tommy DeVito had little chance, but he struggled mightily, completing just 14 of 27 for 86 yards with two TDs and one INT.
He was just 4 of 9 for 24 yards in the first half as the offense went 0-for-6 on third downs
20-1 difference in first downs between the Cowboys and Giants in the first half.
“Confidence is not where it needs to be, obviously. We got our asses kicked by a team in our division, so that stings even more. It’s on us to win a game. No one’s coming to save us. Go out and win a game.” –Giants offensive lineman Justin Pugh
