  1. Barkley is overrated. The Cowboys defense was determined to stop the run by putting the ball in Jones hand, who as usual couldn’t handle the pass rush and came up short. Giants had several opportunities to take control of the game with Jones in the passing game. But couldn’t get the job done.

  2. Both Giants and Jets will be looking for quarterbacks next year. Garroppallo and Carr will be in New York next season.

  3. Looks like Dallas had their dinner early and started in a food coma. Glad they woke up second half.

  4. GIANTS maybe have 1 win left on their schedule , if you can’t get Barkley going let him go !

  5. Cowboys defense is so elite. Garbage time TD wasn’t ideal but this team is ready to make a run.

  6. Giants are completely phony as a serious threat. Their record was a mirage all along Dallas exposed them twice.

  7. Nice beatdown cowboys!!! We are going to SB and taking number 1 seed from beagles.How bout those cowboys!!!!

  8. Can’t wait for the Cowboys to sign OBJ and ruin their chemistry.
    Watch him after they lose their first playoff game.

  9. Congrats to Dallas today.

    A quick observation not just this game, is Kavon Thibideaux really that hard to officiate? It seems he’s getting held or clotheslined regularly after beating the lineman but he has to get pancaked to get a call. Again, it’s not this game per se. Anyone have any reasoning or are the Giants just sending the tapes to the league each week?

  10. I think Daboll is getting everything possible out of Daniel Jones, which still isn’t enough to get you anywhere in this league.

    You could be right but it’s hard to evaluate someone when 3/5 on his OL is 3rd stringers and he only has 1 WR who was almost cut before the season. I’m by no means saying you’re wrong or right but when I hear the Packers or Chiefs say they have no WRs, put Jones with those groups and evaluate him.

    Super Bowl? Two of the three Cowboy losses have come against NFC teams that most likely will make the playoffs. Enjoy!

    What are the refs looking at? Lamb is still somewhere getting HELD right now! smh

    The refs were looking right at him when they called DPI on the Giants, rightfully so. Not quite sure why you’re complaining. It’s not like he was being tackled on every play and the refs ignored it.

  14. Darnay Holmes matched up on CeeDee Lamb was a disaster waiting to happen but the TD called back for Phillips taking 2 steps down the field trying to avoid holding was highly unusual call. Usually lineman are way down the field. Holmes was trying to Ty Lue Iverson all game.

    —————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

    Cowboys have already beaten the 2 Superbowl teams from last year.
    Tampa and Green Bay will not make the playoffs and the loss to Philly came with Dak on the sidelines and a backup unable to get this offense over 20pts in any game.
    The Eagles do not beat Dak ever. They come to Dallas soon.

  16. Throw Cowboys in with Vikings and Niners, thinking this win means Super Bowl for the first time in any of their fans’ lives.

    Just a little reality.

    You beat the Giants by 8.

    The Giants great wins include 3 points at home vs Carolina, 5 points at Pakcers (oops sore spot for Boys), 6 points over Jags with Jags on the one inch line, 8 points over the Texans.

    The Lions beat them worse.

    The NFC Super Bowl rep won’t come out of the East or the North.
