The degrees in which the New York Giants misplaced to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night down in Texas are at the moment immeasurable. Not solely did they lose 44-20 to drop to 1-4 on the season, however they misplaced two of their most useful offensive items in working again Saquon Barkley and quarterback Daniel Jones — each of whom suffered accidents in the primary half — together with No. 1 receiver Kenny Golladay.
With 6:17 to go in the primary quarter after an incomplete cross over the center meant for the working again, Barkley stepped on the foot of Cowboys cornerback Jourdan Lewis as his left ankle rolled awkwardly. He limped off the sphere and was examined on the sideline by staff employees as his ankle swelled. Shortly thereafter, he was carted to the locker room and shortly dominated out for the rest of the sport.
With just below 4 minutes to go in the second quarter, Jones bounded to the left on a quarterback keeper on the Cowboys’ 1-yard-line earlier than a helmet-to-helmet collision dazed the passer. After making an attempt to rise up and stroll again to the huddle, Jones’ legs buckled earlier than he was carted off with a concussion.
It pressured the Giants to flip to veteran passer Mike Glennon below middle and Devontae Booker in the backfield for the remainder of the way in which for an offense that was already with no pair of invaluable extensive receivers in Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton together with rising left sort out, Andrew Thomas.
They did nothing with a Lorenzo Carter interception on the Cowboys’ opening drive of the night close to midfield, which ended with a Graham Gano missed discipline objective — nor may they capitalize on a fumbled snap by Dak Prescott on the Giants’ 5-yard-line, recovered by Reggie Ragland.
The Cowboys have been effectively on their means with 12 minutes left in the second quarter when Prescott hit CeeDee Lamb for a 49-yard landing to go up 10-0.
It was the most important play of the day for the Cowboys’ quarterback, who took the exact same discipline at AT&T Stadium on Sunday 364 days after he suffered a season-ending leg damage towards the exact same Giants.
New York pulled inside seven on a Gano 51-yard discipline objective that was arrange by a circus 43-yard connection from Jones, who heaved up a prayer down the left sideline, to Kadarius Toney, who tip-toed the sideline and over the legs of a defender to haul in the catch.
With the staggering lack of offensive weapons, Toney starred for the Giants in the loss, posting a franchise rookie file 189 yards on 10 catches.
However even his day ended on a bitter be aware when he was thrown out of the sport for attempting to throw a punch at security Damontae Kazee throughout a fourth-quarter scrum with the sport lengthy determined.
Three of these 10 catches from Toney got here on a drive in which Giants tied it up with 2:51 to go in the half; only one play after dropping Jones for the sport when Booker leaped over the pile for a one-yard landing.
Dallas poached the lead with 36 seconds to go earlier than the break when Prescott hit Cooper down the left sideline for a 24-yard rating.
Because the Giants took the sphere for the fourth quarter, No. 1 receiver Kenny Golladay was nowhere to be discovered. He was dominated out for the remainder of the sport with a knee damage.
Gano’s second 51-yard discipline objective of the day drew the Giants inside 4 early in the third quarter behind a 35-yard reception by Toney from Glennon.
However the deficit would solely develop because the Cowboys reeled off 17 unanswered factors to put the sport out of attain; each scores coming from Elliott to cap off a monster day of 110 yards on 21 carries.
Booker would nab a comfort prize with 3:17 to go when he powered house for his second rating of the day, however issues someway acquired worse when Glennon allowed a pick-six inside the ultimate two minutes to Anthony Brown.
