The Giants had a chance for a comeback — however slim — when Lorenzo Carter forced a Dak Prescott fumble that was recovered by Austin Johnson at the Dallas 27. Mike Glennon, though, gave it right back.

Two plays later, Glennon was flushed from the pocket. He threw it up in the end zone with Kenny Golladay one-on-one with Trevon Diggs. It was a mistake.

The ball was underthrown and Diggs got his hands on it before Golladay knocked it loose.

Officials ruled it incomplete, but Mike McCarthy challenged the play. Replay overturned it to an interception, though Fox rules analyst Dean Blandino called it “really close” and said he would have let the play stand.

It was Diggs’ league-leading 10th interception. Everson Walls and Mel Renfro are the only other players in team history with 10 interceptions in a season. Walls holds the team record with 11 in 1981.

It also was the Cowboys’ fourth takeaway of the day, marking the third consecutive week they have had four takeaways. They have 31 takeaways for the season.

The Cowboys lead 21-6, and the Giants have replaced Glennon with Jake Fromm. It is Fromm’s NFL debut.

  1. If I were a Dallas fan, I’d be very worried – that team is a paper tiger. It won’t do well against teams with a winning records. And in the playoffs, they could lose by 35.

  2. 3 wins on the road in December.
    2 against teams with playoff aspirations.
    The Cowboys Defense is the reason.

    ————————————————————————————————————–

    They have beaten more teams with a winning record than the supposed teams you are alluding too. They are now the number two seed over Tampa and Arizona partly for that very reason even though they have the same records.

  4. Cowboys offense has sputtered in the Red Zone for the past 4 games. Their RZ plays are predictable, unimaginative and unsuccessful yet they continue to repeat them. Unless they figure out how to score TD’s, their playoff schedule will be short.
