What were the New York Giants saying after Sunday’s 37-34 loss to the Dallas Cowboys? Let’s find out.

Logan Ryan on the Dak Prescott injury ...

Ryan made the tackle on the play where Prescott was injured.

“First and foremost, the worst thing that happened today was the Dak (Prescott) injury. I mean, it’s bigger than football. I feel terrible. It was a routine football play. ... I hope he gets $500 million when he comes back. He deserves it. He’s a hell of a quarterback. ... Honestly, that was the worst thing that happened today. I have a sick taste in my stomach for it.”

Ryan on being 0-5 ...

“Yes, this one hurts because we feel like we could have won that one. We didn’t play well enough to win. The turnovers, the penalties, and the bad defense before the half and at the end of the game - we have to execute better. We have to make more progress. We have to do quickly. But look man, I’m not running anywhere. I’m here. I don’t care what the record is. I’m here. I’m going to lead our troops. Joe is going to lead our troops and we’re going to have to execute better. I’ve been on really good teams and it’s about details and executions. It’s on the players. That’s why it hurts because we care. ... We just have to be better and we know we can be. Our expectation and standard is to be. Our standard is to win these games. That’s why it hurts.”

Daniel Jones on the Giants’ final offensive possession ...

“I think we made the play on the first (down), and Darius (Slayton) made a good play coming back to the ball. Probably should’ve thrown it away on that check-down to Dion (Lewis), the first one. And then the second one, trying to get something and get out of bounds. And the third down play, got to find someone and make a play there for us. Tough situation, ball’s in our hands and we got to find a way to win the game.”

Jones on starting the season 0-5 ...

“I think it’s been a tough start. To say we aren’t disappointed would be a lie. We certainly are, it’s been a tough start. I don’t think anyone on this team is discouraged. We’re not going to allow ourselves to be discouraged and let this start affect the rest of this season. We have a lot of football ahead of us, and I think everyone on this team feels like we’ve been in the position to win games, we’ve improved as a team, and we’re capable of winning each of these games. So in terms of our confidence as a team, and what we believe we’re capable of doing, I think that’s going to be the important thing in us finishing strong, and winning these games down the stretch. So, that’s where we are as a team, we’re disappointed, we want to win every game, but we’re not going to let it affect our preparation and how we approach these next 11 games.”

Coach Joe Judge on the team’s wide open offensive playbook Sunday ...

“I thought overall Jason [Garrett] put together a good, aggressive game plan. We were taking shots down the field, our guys made plays, we put them in a position to go out there and win a football game. Overall, I’ve got to watch the tape, but I liked the way we called the game today. It was aggressive, we gave our guys shots down the field and guys made plays when we needed them to.”

Judge on the tough loss ...

“Look, obviously they’re disappointed after any game where we don’t come out winners, but one thing I know about our team is it’s a resilient group and it’s a hard-working bunch. We’ll come back to work this week, we’re going to see great energy, we’re going to have great focus and we’re going to get tuned in and ready for another division opponent. All of our focus, whether it’s win or loss, shifts to the next opponent the next morning anyway, so we’ve got to clean up this game, get ready for the next opponent and move on forward.”

Blake Martinez on being 0-5 ...

“I think I heard Logan (Ryan) say it best, it’s at this point in time that there’s enough of this “we’re so close, we’re getting there,” it’s time to win, this is a result business, we need to go out there and win, get the job done, and it’s time for that now.”
