The Dallas Cowboys came in as 17-point favorites for this game. They were on an 11-game winning streak at AT&T Stadium, a five-game winning streak against the New York Giants, and their opponent was extremely injury stricken. But the Cowboys still had business to take care of. Let’s scroll through social media for commentary and highlights of todays game.
From the start the Cowboys offense went hard. CeeDee Lamb making a one-handed catch and didn’t even look at the ball making the catch.

The Cowboys opt to go for it on fourth-down down at the five-yard line. They come up short.
Please don't ask me to make sense of that. Four downs from the 5-yard line. The reason you were down there was because of Rico's running, yet he comes out and they only run twice.— Nick Eatman (@nickeatman) November 12, 2023
But they couldn’t keep CeeDee Lamb down for long as he draws first blood in this game on a reverse play. He scores his first rushing touchdown this year.
That's two games this year the Cowboys have scored against the Giants with a WR run. Turpin in Week 1 and now CeeDee.— Nick Eatman (@nickeatman) November 12, 2023
Dak throws a bad interception to end the first. Looks as though it’s miscommunication between Dak and Jake Ferguson, but either way Prescott shouldn’t have thrown that one.
On the resulting drive, the Giants then fail on fourth-down down inside the five-yard line.
The offense found a rhythm and got the second score on a solid drive from their own redzone. That’s three consecutive games for Ferguson to make a touchdown.

Dallas sheds off the rust on that drive and capitalizes on the goal line. Cowboys go up by two scores.
Cowboys 14, Giants 0
They gave Rico Dowdle chances and he proves to be effective having a career day.
Keep feeding Rico.— Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) November 12, 2023

First downs at the end of the first half...— Dan Rogers (@DannyPhantom24) November 12, 2023
Cowboys = 20
Giants = 1
Outside of that one little disparity, it's been really close.
Michael Gallup completes the set for all three starting wide receivers to get a score.
DaRon Bland keeps up his impressive run of interceptions.

Dak throws another score, this time to CeeDee Lamb. It’s been quite a night from the Cowboys starting signal-caller.
With 1:29 left in the third quarter, Dak Prescott has completed 26 of 35 passes for 404 yards with four touchdowns, one interception and a rushing touchdown.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) November 12, 2023

Dak Prescott had himself an excellent day, he was pulled before the fourth-quarter started.
