Things go from bad to worse for Cowboys

When last we left the Cowboys (it wasn’t that long ago), they had two turnovers and the Giants had a 13-0 lead with more than three minutes to go in the first quarter.

It’s now less than two minutes into the second quarter and those qualify has the good old days. The Cowboys have turned the ball over twice more, including a Jason Pierre-Paul interception that the Giants defensive end returned 28 yards for a touchdown. That lifted the Giants lead to 23-0 and it is going to be hard for the Cowboys to stop the Giants from remaining undefeated at Cowboys Stadium without a sudden and total change in fortunes.

The Cowboys defense seemed to come up with a big win when they forced the Giants to go three-and-out after a Cowboys punt, but the Giants got the ball right back when Dez Bryant fumbled Steve Weatherford’s punt. The defense held the Giants to a third Lawrence Tynes field goal, but Tony Romo’s third interception was enough to suck any potential momentum right back out of the room.

There’s still plenty of time to play in Dallas, although it’s hard to tell if that’s a good thing for the Cowboys right now.
