The Dallas Cowboys extended their win streak to four in a row with the 44-20 victory over the New York Giants Sunday afternoon. It was yet another impressive win that was pretty much dominated by the Cowboys from the get-go. However, it wasn’t perfect by any means. There was some good, some bad, and a little bit of ugly sprinkled in as well.

We discussed all of the good, bad, ugly, and much more from the win during our official Dallas Cowboys Postgame Show here at Blogging The Boys.

THE GOOD - Trevon Diggs

Thanks, in large part, to Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard, the Cowboys rushed for more than 200 yards against the New York Giants Sunday afternoon. As impressive as that is, it’s not nearly as awe-inspiring as Trevon Diggs keeping his interception streak alive. In the first half he nearly picked off two Daniel Jones passes, but was finally able to secure his league-leading sixth interception this year by baiting the Giants backup quarterback Mike Glennon on a deep throw. Diggs now has five games in a row with an INT. There’s no stopping him!


THE BAD - Turnovers and sloppiness

Poor snaps, boneheaded penalties, and turnovers made this Week 5 matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants a lot closer than it should’ve been. Tyler Biadasz had several bad snaps Sunday afternoon, one of which resulted in a turnover after Dak Prescott failed to secure it. This is becoming a reoccurring issue that needs to be fixed as soon as possible. While this was another pretty impressive victory, there’s still far too much sloppiness that needs to be cleaned up. They do that and they could be unstoppable.


THE UGLY - Allowing the Giants to hang around

Just about everything went the Cowboys way Sunday afternoon against their division foe. They pretty much controlled the game from the get-go, but once again allowed their opponent to hang around and make it a more competitive game that should’ve been. The Cowboys may be on a four-game win streak, but if they want to keep putting “W’s” in the win column they can’t allow teams to keep sticking around. Sooner or later, it’s going to come back and bite them. It’s something to keep in mind moving forward.
