Well, that Week 2 victory was quite the surprise for Dallas Cowboys fans, but not for the Cowboys players, coaches, and myself who pressed forward after losing Dak Prescott last week. Many saw the Cinncinati Bengals getting an easy win and that wasn’t the case at all with the Cowboys beating the Bengals with a kick to end the game. This week, though, the game has a different meaning as the Cowboys face their NFC East rival the New York Giants in a game the Cowboys really need to win.
The Giants come into this game undefeated but you could say that they won in a very ugly fashion. Either way, the Cowboys can’t underestimate this Giants team and will need to bring their “A” game in order to win on Monday night. They have an offense that despite having Daniel Jones at quarterback is still putting points on the board and a defense keeping teams out of the endzone.
Let’s take a look at this Giants team and see what the Cowboys will be going up against this week in “Know Thy Enemy”.
