Cowboys 33, Giants 20: We Should Have Seen This Coming

Dallas Cowboys 33, New York Giants 20. An ugly, forgettable game for our Giants. And one we probably should have seen coming.

A slew of offensive injuries, and yes they proved costly. A Dallas team with a new head coach that was determined to begin proving it was better than its 1-7 record. A five-game winning streak with a big game against Philadelphia coming up next week. We know the Giants never take the easy path, so why should we have expected anything different today?

Still, only a few plays separated the Giants from victory.

  • Hakeem Nicks failing to finish a route, which was possibly a 13-point swing since it cost the Giants a possible touchdown and turned into a pick six.
  • Kevin Boss dropping a sure touchdown pass.
  • A penalty on Will Beatty that negated a touchdown, and came two plays before the pick six.
  • A penalty of Kevin Boothe that negated a touchdown.

There were a host of other mistakes on offense, some atrocious cornerback play, a completely non-existen pass rush (did Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora make it to New Meadowlands), some crappy that didn't want to watch, either, and a whole bunch of other forgettable stuff.

This was a bad game for the Giants. It happens. It's Philly next week, and the worst the Giants will be heading into the game is tied for first place. Congrats to Jason Garrett on his first win. Now, let's turn the page.
