2. KaVontae Turpin scores two touchdowns
One of the more shocking things to not have happened yet is seeing the Cowboys’ exciting return man celebrating in the endzone during the regular season.
There have been times this season when he looked like he was about to take a return back to the house only to be tripped up or pushed out of bounds at the last second. The last time Turpin faced the Giants he was only able to return one kick-off and one punt.
On Thanksgiving, I believe Turpin will get more chances to get his hands on the football, not only in the return game but also with a few special plays on offense designed for him.
Kellen Moore has used Turpin in the screen game and a few end-around running plays to create space for him much like he would have when returning a kick. The Giants may not expect him to get the football when he’s on the field with the offense and that could bode well for Turpin and the Cowboys this week.
