Devonta Freeman emerges as dominant running back NY Giants desperately need, but defense lets Dallas Cowboys off the hook in 37-34 loss Sunday
The NY Giants were in control for much of Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, even holding a 34-31 lead with 8:41 remaining in the fourth quarter, but the result was a familiar one as Joe Judge’s team fell to 0-5 following a 37-34 loss to their NFC East rivals.
“Look, obviously they’re disappointed after any game where we don’t come out winners,” Giants head coach Joe Judge said afterwards. “But, one thing I know about our team is it’s a resilient group and it’s a hard-working bunch. We’ll come back to work this week, we’re going to get tuned in and ready for another division opponent [next week].”
Judge will need to wait another week to try for his first career win, but has to be pleased with how his offense finally was able to be productive and dictate to an opponent.
The NY Giants produced a season-high in points, yards (300), someone other than Daniel Jones led the team in rushing, and the Giants even converted two of three trips into the red zone into touchdowns.
But, it still wasn’t enough, as the NY Giants were unable to move into position for a game-winning field goal on the offense’s final possession and remain buried in last place in the NFC East.
Before looking ahead to next Sunday’s battle of winless division rivals against the Washington Football Team, let’s take one last look back at Sunday.
