Dak Prescott played the Giants at home, 364 days since the compound fracture and discloation of his right ankle in Week 5 against the Giants last year. Prescott left in tears on his way to the hospital last Oct. 11. He left Sunday’s game with a huge smile.

The Cowboys blew out the Giants 44-20 as Prescott completed 22 of 32 passes for 302 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. He also lost a fumble.

Prescott has become the leading candidate for comeback player of the year with the Cowboys off to a 4-1 start. The Giants fell to 1-4..

It was not a good day for the Giants, who entered without injured receivers Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. Offensive tackle Andrew Thomas was active but didn’t play. During the game, the Giants lost quarterback Daniel Jones (concussion), running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), receiver Kenny Golladay (knee) and cornerback Rodarius Williams (knee). In addition, receiver Kadarius Toney was ejected in the fourth quarter.

The Cowboys rolled to 515 yards as Ezekiel Elliott ran for 110 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and caught two passes for 2 yards and a touchdown. He was one of seven receivers to catch a pass, and CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper each had a touchdown reception.

Mike Glennon went 16-of-25 for 196 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in place of Jones. He was intercepted by Trevon Diggs, who has a pick in every game this season and six for the year, and Anthony Brown had a 45-yard pick-six with 1:28 remaining.

  1. That high price defense will take a hit in the off-season. They can’t afford Leonard, Bradbury, Adoree, Ryan, Martinez with the every week implosions.

  2. The Cowboys were acting like they won the SB after beating the Giants. The Patriots will bring them down to the earth.

  3. Sloppy game for the Cowboys. Got better second half, but that defense should’ve done more against a depleted NY team.

    Good wake up call though. No easy weeks in the NFL. You earn it every game.

  4. Personally I’m very much looking forward to next week and lining up against the Patriots, can’t get here quick enough for me, this Dallas team is different than the much hyped(like every year it seems) we are used to seeing, what crazy is they really have yet to give a complete dominating performance, I pity the team that gets it

  5. Did everything as expected. With or without injuries, everyone was expecting Dallas to win. The entire team wasn’t respecting the giants at all. We may have botched that 4th down conversion on the opening drive but absolutely no one panicked. This Cowboys team is different and the credit is due to heavy quality depth. Keep in mind we are still missing key starters. Bring on New England. Doesn’t matter what the record says, it’s tough winning in Foxboro. A push off from 5-0. Dallas is legit

  6. Tell me again why having a running qb is a good thing again? So he can put himself in harm’s way over and over-lol. That being said, it’s just like I told my fellow Giants fans, this Dallas team is legit and they were going to light us up. Once we lost Saquon, all they had to do was tee off on Jones. I’m not saying they did anything dirty (they didn’t), but they knew how the Giants were going use Jones in the running game and were totally ready for it.

  7. The Giants have a horrible offensive line. The Cowboys have been jailbreaking through everyone’s offensive line. Here’s my question – How do the Cowboys have no sacks and the Giants have no holding penalties for the whole game? The Cowboy’s center was called for holding, and the replay showed that the Giants’ DT had a grip under the center’s pads and was pulling. But the center was called for holding and the Giants’ not called for offensive holding at all. Why do the Giants get all this protection from the refs?
