They're one of us! On Sunday night, how happy were you to see the Dallas Cowboys, one of the biggest NY Giants rivals out there, completely (expletive) the bed in the Wild Card Round? Dallas was expected to cruise to a win, but the Packers embarrassed them at AT&T Stadium.
Big Blue supporters were loving every minute of it and it turns out that several NY players were also catching the action and enjoying the show being put on display by Jordan Love and Co. The list included Darius Slayton and Graham Gano, who took to social media to cheer for the Cowboys' downfall:
Darius Slayton and Graham Gano loved seeing the Cowboys blow it against Green Bay
Slayton delivered his tweet in support of Green Bay midway through the first half, with the NFC North side shocking everyone with how dominant they looked. The Packers defense held Dak Prescott in check, with Jaire Alexander getting the party started with a fantastic interception to put GB in business.
Then, late in the second quarter, Darnell Savage read Prescott like a book and took an interception all the way back for a pick-six. That score put the Packers up 27-0 and you could hear a pin drop at the stadium in Arlington. Meanwhile back home, Gano had a massive smile on his face:
We sure did, Graham. In the end, the Packers took down Dallas 48-32 and everyone in Big D has lost it on Prescott and head coach Mike McCarthy. People are clapping back at Slayton and Gano, reminding them that the Giants are 0-4 against Dallas the past two seasons with Brian Daboll in charge.
Sure, you got them there, but the Cowboys choking in the playoffs and letting everyone down is the gift that keeps on giving. The Giants are watching the postseason on TV, but the exact same can now be said for the Cowboys. A Super Bowl run for America's Team? Yeah, that thought was comical from the start.
