3. Turnovers

The Giants had a game in 2013 against the Cowboys in which they turned the football over six times…no wonder they lost that game. There were three fumbles and three Manning interceptions in the 2013 opener. In the second 2013 Giants showdown with the Cowboys they only had one fumble and no interceptions. The fumble proved costly though in their defeat.

The 2014 season had similar findings on the turnover front against the Cowboys. In the first meeting the Giants fumbled the ball twice, giving the Cowboys two huge turnovers. In the second game the Cowboys only got one turnover, a Manning interception.

So in four games and two seasons the Giants have had ten turnovers against the Cowboys. That’s four interceptions and six fumbles in four games…talk about frustration. The Giants need to take care of the football if they have any chance of beating the Cowboys to open the season.
