Cowboys’ defense is peaking, but the offense is still seeking

The Dallas Cowboys defense is an absolute powerhouse. While they may not be the best outright defense in the league, they are among the best at taking the ball away.

The defense came to play again in Week 15 vs the Giants, led by some very familiar faces. You know, the Hot Boyz and company.

Micah Parsons didn’t splash as he tends to do, but was once again all over the field, even making plays outside of the hash marks as well.

Randy Gregory continued to cause havoc along the front, adding to what that talented defensive front has been able to do all year long when right. DeMarcus Lawrence wrecked the Giants the whole game — flat out.

They don’t call the man Tank for nothing.

Not only did he force two turnovers by his lonesome, but he did everything to give the Giants nightmares. He tipped a pass by Mike Glennon that led to an interception by Jourdan Lewis. He also caused issues for the run game too.

Check out the following play. What a Peanut Punch by Tank Lawrence here.

As a part of a defensive effort that forced four turnovers, Trevon Diggs (of course), Jourdan Lewis, and Malik Hooker looked as though they are continuing to head where they need to be if the Cowboys want to make a postseason run.

They are peaking at the right time. As far as quarterback Dak Prescott, offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, and the rest of the offense…they are still seeking.
