The Giants played a complete game…..in the first quarter. Forcing three Dallas turnovers, and leading 13-0. The Giants offense was steady and efficient while staying balanced despite not having a great numbers in the running game. A Dez Bryant fumble to begin the second quarter led to another Giants Field Goal when Martellus Bennett dropped a ball on the Dallas one.
The Giants defense then decided to take matters into their own hands when Jason Pierre Paul, who seems to love to play in Dallas, interceted a Tony Romo screen pass, and return it for a touchdown…23-0 just 38 seconds into the 2nd quarter.
The Giants did make one huge mistake when Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled near mid-field halfway through the 2nd quarter, but Tony Romo looks lost. He seems like he and his receivers have no idea what they are doing. At 10:38 in the second period he was 6/15 for 55 yards with 3 interceptions…a rating of 11.1 The Cowboy defense has actually played well or the score could be much worse.
The Cowboys finally settled down a bit and had a nice drive for a touchdown with 5:22 remaining in the half. The Cowboys have made some changes, and are starting to feature their standards like Jason Witten instead of the inconsistent Dez Bryant, who has been removed from punt return duty. This game is far from over because of the play of the Cowboy defense, and the Giants must stay aggressive.
The Cowboys will receive the 2nd half kickoff
