The Giants double their average scoring output … and it still isn’t enough

The Giants’ struggles on offense have been well documented.

Entering Sunday, the Giants are averaging a league-low 11.7 points per game, Daniel Jones is the team’s leading rusher with just 137 yards, and New York has not scored an offensive touchdown in two-plus games. Prior to last Sunday’s 17-9 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, Giants running backs were averaging less than 2.5 yards per carry.

Not ideal.

Could this be the week that changes?

Fortunately for Jones and the Giants, the Cowboys enter Week 5 allowing 38.5 points per game, the most in the NFL.

Likewise, after the Giants showed signs of life in the second half against the Rams, perhaps some momentum carries over this week.

But, even if the Giants double their output — which I think they will — 24 points likely isn’t enough to get it done. Especially with Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott averaging 422 and over two touchdowns per game.
