This is what the offense was always meant to be
After four weeks of predictability and lack of ingenuity, Garrett pulled out all the stops, which was absolutely necessary to provide a spark against the Cowboys on Sunday.
From running a pair of jet-sweeps to tight end Evan Engram, including the Giants’ first touchdown of the game, exploiting the Cowboys’ propensity for giving up big plays on screen passes, and sticking with the running game throughout, this was as balanced and effective as the Giants’ offense looked all season.
Garrett even showed some creativity with a misdirection pass to rookie left tackle Andrew Thomas on a two-point conversion to lift the Giants to a 8:46 remaining.
The Giants produced a season-high 300 yards of total offense, scored the most points, and finally were able to dictate to a defense.
In a division race where the Philadelphia Eagles, Cowboys, Washington Football Team, and the Giants have now combined for four wins, with a home game against Washington slated for next week, if this is the offense that shows up for the rest of the season, the Giants have a chance to steal a couple of wins.
Unfortunately on Sunday, Jones and the offense weren’t able to seal the deal.
