3-0 Dallas: A 31-yard field goal by Greg Zeurlein gave Dallas a 3-0 lead with 6:20 left in the first quarter. The Cowboys went 44 yards in 10 plays for the score after the Gano missed field.
GANO MISSES FROM 54: The Giants failed to capitalize on the turnover. Kadarius Toney dropped a third-down pass and Graham Gano then missed a 54-yard field goal.
Significantly for the Giants, Andrew Thomas (foot) did not start at left tackle. Nate Solder started on the left side and Matt Peart started at right tackle.
CARTER WITH THE PICK! This is how Dallas’ first possession ended:
The 1-3 New York Giants have an opportunity on Sunday to insert themselves into the NFC East division race as they are on the road to face the division-leading Dallas Cowboy (3-1). The Giants are 7-point underdogs in the 4:25 p.m. game on FOX.
The Giants got some good news before the game when it was announced that left tackle Andrew Thomas (foot) would play.
Sunday’s game comes almost a year to the day of Dak Prescott’s season-ending ankle injury last season against the Giants.
