Let’s make this as simple as possible. The Cowboys out-rushed the Giants, 156 to 104. You can start there, because everything else is secondary.
The Giants head into their bye week feeling as though they played an better game. But they still have consecutive losses to the two teams ahead of them in the NFC East.
Romo matched his season high with three touchdown passes, including the first two-touchdown game of second-year tight end Gavin Escobar’s career.
The New York Football Giants (3-4) looked to restart their season against the first-Place Dallas Cowboys (6-1) after a disappointing loss last week to the Philadelphia Eagles. But New York did not particularly fare well on either side of the football in another losing effort, 31-21 at AT&T Stadium.
The Giants (3-4), already dealing with a hobbled Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, will have extra time to heal heading into their bye week.
Tony Romo has been the focal point of Dallas’ offense for quite some time, but with DeMarco Murray and a cohesive offensive line guiding the Cowboys’ NFL-best rushing attack, Romo is having an easier time of it under center this season.
The front seven — specifically LBs Jameel McClain, Jon Beason and Jacquian Williams — must hold their ground and fill those rushing lanes in order to contain DeMarco Murray.
With the Giants traveling to Dallas to take on Tony Romo and the Cowboys this Sunday, Al opened his sack of hits one more time.
DeMarco Murray could become the first running back to begin a season with seven 100-yard rushing games as the Cowboys seek a sixth straight victory when they host the Giants on Sunday.
After the way their team was vaporized by the Eagles, Big Blue devotees are back to the September song of death. Just 60 minutes turned the tune from elitism to defeatism.
The New York Giants are very aware of one thing. They are facing one of the best teams in the NFC in the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, posing an enormous challenge to a struggling defense.
After playing its worst game of the season, the New York Giants offense line has something to prove against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Giants face a tough opponent this weekend, but are preparing for another another just as carefully.
The New York Football Giants (3-3) jump out of the frying pan and into the fire this week as the team travels to Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys (5-1). The G-men are still smarting from a 27-0 pasting at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles, while the Cowboys upended the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks 30-23 in Seattle.
Don’t think for a minute that just because the old lion lost the battle, he is doomed to lose the war. These are Tom Coughlin’s Giants, after all.
