Giants Win Season Opener in Dallas
The New York Giants have snapped a five year opening day losing streak with a 20-19 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
The Cowboys Dak Prescott did well in his rookie debut thanks to a Dallas offensive line that is one of the best in the NFL, but the Giants defense found a way to stop them from getting into the end zone and settling for field goals four out of five times.
The most surprising part of the game for me was the Giants running game, even though it was just 113 rushing yards they came at the right time, keeping drives alive and over coming a few penalties.
It was nice to see Victor Cruz back on the field and catching the game winning TD.
Eli threw an interception that gave Dallas their only touchdown, that was a mistake that could have cost us the game.
I'm sure most Giants fans were on their feet or restless in their seats during the last Cowboy drive with seconds remaining, but Dallas has no timeouts left and couldn't stop the clock as the last play put them in field goal range with the clock running out/
I was surprised that Dallas was able to keep moving the ball down the field drive after drive, but again they have a dominating o-line, and one of the best Tight Ends in the NFL with Jason Witten.
The Giants will host the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, catch all the action with Bob Papa and company starting with the Pre-Game show on Sunday at 12 Noon and keep it here after the game for head coach Ben McAdoo's press conference and team interviews on your station for NY Giants Football 991 the whale.
