Cowboys working out quarterback Landry Jones

The Cowboys are working out a group of wide receivers today, which we already knew would include former Cowboys wideout Brice Butler.

Eli Manning on offense: It can take some time to get going

The Giants offense was a mess last season, which led to changes at head coach, General Manager, offensive line and running back heading into the season. Those changes and the healthy return of wide receiver Odell Beckham led to a steady flow of confidence this offseason and summer about how much better the unit would [more]

Saquon Barkley catches 14 passes, for a stunningly low 80 yards

When the Giants took running back Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick in the NFL draft, they were surely expecting him to do a lot more than catch six-yard checkdown passes. But that’s primarily what he did on Sunday night. Barkley caught 14 passes for 80 yards in the Giants’ loss to the Cowboys, [more]

Dak Prescott: Entire offense accepted Landon Collins’ challenge

Dak Prescott went 2-for-2 for 72 yards and a touchdown on his first two passes of the game. He was 14-for-23 for 87 yards the rest of the way. It marked the eighth time in the past 10 games the Cowboys have had under 200 passing yards. But since the Cowboys won the game, the [more]

Sunday Night wrap-up: Dak Prescott bounces back from opener

As stat lines go, it wasn’t much to look at. But the Cowboys got to double digits on the scoreboard and they didn’t lose, so it’s reasonable to declare progress for Dak Prescott. Prescott was solid-if-not-spectacular in their 20-13 win over the Giants, the kind of efficient performance from their quarterback which has to be [more]

Giants center Jon Halapio leaves in air cast, on cart

Kaelin Clay leaves on cart with ankle injury

Giants returner Kaelin Clay was carted off for the X-ray room in the second quarter. The team announced Clay has an ankle injury. They initially listed him as questionable and then out and announced with 5:41 left in the third quarter that he will return. Last week, Clay lost a fumble with 45 seconds left [more]

Cowboys up 10-0 at halftime over Giants

It’s a good thing the Cowboys scored on their first two possessions, because they haven’t done much since. The good news is, the Giants haven’t done anything at all. The Cowboys are up 10-0 at halftime, thanks to the early burst which included a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin. But after following that with [more]

Dak Prescott goes deep early for quick Cowboys lead

The Cowboys nearly matched their point total from last week in the first two minutes of the game. They definitely matched their excitement total. The Cowboys took a quick 7-0 lead on the Giants, with Dak Prescott hitting Tavon Austin for a 64-yard touchdown pass. That downfield element wasn’t there in last week’s 16-8 loss [more]

Do the Cowboys want Josh Gordon?

Receiver Josh Gordon reportedly wants to play for the Cowboys. But do the Cowboys want Josh Gordon? Even with Brice Butler joining the team (a fact that PFT has confirmed), the Cowboys still lack a game-breaking, home-run hitting option in the passing game. Someone who can command double coverage, drawing a safety away from centerfield [more]

Randy Gregory, Olivier Vernon inactive for Cowboys-Giants

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said he expected Randy Gregory to play this week, barring health issues. A health issue is keeping Gregory from playing tonight. The Cowboys included Gregory among their inactive list for tonight’s game against the Giants. Gregory remains in the concussion protocol, though he returned to practice on a limited basis [more]
