Giants - Cowboys preview, analysis and prediction


Last week
Giants: lost 31-18 vs. Lions
Cowboys: won 40-3 at Vikings

The Dallas Cowboys took care of 1 fraudulent opponent this week. Can they make it 2? I guess we'll find out on Thursday when the Cowboys host the New York Giants on Thanksgiving Day. But if you're a Dallas fan right now, you're likely jumping for joy at this point after what just happened on Sunday.

Here's the thing. I think we all looked at that game on Sunday against Minnesota and thought that the Cowboys were going to eventually beat the Minnesota Vikings. I don't think there was any doubt that they were going to win because the Cowboys were due for a frustrated bounce-back game after what happened in Green Bay the week prior, and the Vikings really needed some humble pie. And if there was any defense that was going to supply that humble pie it would be this Dallas defense. And Oh my God did they ever.

Dallas ran away with this game from start to finish in perhaps the most impressive complete game on the road in franchise history, defeating Minnesota 40-3 in a game that can only be described as a rout. Dak Prescott threw for 276 yards and two touchdowns, both of them going to Tony Pollard, yes the running back, who reeled in 109 yards on six receptions for both touchdowns while also running for 80 yards. Ezekiel Elliott returned to the lineup on Sunday and ran for two short yardage touchdowns and there was nothing else to be said. Dallas absolutely kicked the crap out of them.

"We kind of found our formula, just running the ball, pounding the defense, dominating on all phases of the game," Pollard said.

I don't want to formally believe that the Cowboys are back. That loss against Green Bay last week was definitely an eye-opener that they can't afford to play like that the rest of the way. And looking at the grand scheme of things knowing that Dallas could be 8-2 and only one game behind the Philadelphia Eagles right now is sort of disheartening. But this is one way for Dallas to continue putting the foot on the gas.

A lot of people have looked at what the giants have done this year and have called it impressive when in reality, it has just been of mediocre defense somehow surviving the play of a mediocre quarterback and going about their business accordingly. And that's exactly what happened to the Giants on Sunday when they face the Detroit Lions and lost 31-18.

Daniel Jones threw for 341 yards and two interceptions while leading the team in rushing with 50 yards, and Detroit just punked them with its defense. It wasn't going to last forever for the giants and now we are seeing the benefit of them looking like a fraudulent team.

"It just wasn't good enough today," Daboll said. "Again, it's hard to overcome three turnovers."

You have to remember that the last time the Cowboys and giants based each other, Cooper rush was the quarterback for the Cowboys. Prescott was still dealing with a broken finger. If this offense shows up the way it did against Minnesota and does it against the Giants, this is going to be a very bad day for New York.

Prediction


If this game isn't over by halftime then the Cowboys are doing something wrong. There is no way Dallas should keep this team in this game for a long period of time and now considering the fact that the Giants are facing a Dallas team with Prescott at quarterback this could be a very long day for New York.
