Final score: Dallas Cowboys 40, New York Giants 0. Full recap, more coverage to come.
Yup. This most definitely sums up the night for the Giants.

Kavontae Turpin 7-yard TD run and extra point make it 40-0 Dallas with 11:31 left.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
33-0 after three quarters. Much of the MetLife Stadium crowd has gone home and the ‘Let’s go Cowboys’ chants have taken over.

And, the embarrassment continues for the Giants.
Dallas keeps piling it on. Tony Pollard 1-yd. TD on Cowboys' opening drive of 2nd half makes it 33-0 w/10:01 left in the third quarter. Utterly embarrassing game for the Giants.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
Halftime score: Cowboys 26, Giants 0
Miserable 1st half ends w/Giants down, 26-0.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
-- Daniel Jones 5/13, 43 yards, 2 INT, 4 sacks
-- Saquon Barkley 11 carries, 33 yds.
Giants w/81 total yards of offense.
This was about as embarrassing as it could be for the Giants.
Dallas has 7 quarterback hits to go along with 4 sacks, and Daniel Jones has run 7 times. Only one of those was a designed run.
How bad are things for the Giants right now? Even Graham Gano is misfiring. Gano was 34 of 36 from 30-39 yards over the past three seasons before missing from 36 yards with 1:05 left in the half.
Graham Gano, Mr. Automatic, misses from 36 yards. A miserable night gets worse for Giants. I suspect he rushed that after the earlier block.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
The beatdown gets worse.
Dallas takes advantage of INT as Tony Pollard goes 2 yards for TD. Dallas lead is now 26-0 with 8:03 left in the first half. Bad penalties, no pass protection, turnovers. A complete meltdown for the Giants.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
Now it is 19-0, Dallas.
Aubry 38-yard FG stretches Dallas lead over NYG to 19-0 w/10:55 left in the half. 11-play, 60-yard drive keyed by 37-yard DPI on rookie CB Tre Hawkins on a third-and-12.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
Well, 16-0 Cowboys. Trevon Diggs separates Saquon Barkley from the ball and Daron Bland takes advantage.
Trevon Diggs blasts Saquon Barkley after a short pass on third-and-19. Daron Bland runs the INT back for a score and it's 16-0 Dallas w/2:22 left in Q1. Bland credited w/22-yard INT return.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
Awful start. Daniel Jones has been running for his life on every drop back.
Dallas stretches lead to 10-0 w/3:22 left in Q1. Cowboys go 72 yards in 9 plays, keyed by a 49-yard pass to CeeDee Lamb. Brandon Aubry converts 21-yard FG.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
Who had blocked FG return as the first SNF TD on their bingo card— PFF (@PFF) September 11, 2023
Disastrous start for New York. Giants reach Dalls 8-yard line on opening drive. False start, bad snap, blocked field, goal, 6-0 Dallas.
False start followed by bad snap from rookie center John Michael Schmitz. Daniel Jones recover at the 27 and Gano FG is blocked. Dallas Noah Igbinoghnee returns it for a score, and leads 7-0. Disastrous turn of events after a promising drive.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
Rain in East Rutherford supposed to last past midnight, so we'll see how that impacts Giants vs. Cowboys.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) September 11, 2023
