The Dallas Cowboys extended their home winning streak to 12 games by thumping the New York Giants 49-17 on Sunday.
Dak Prescott threw for 404 yards and four touchdowns while running for another TD in three quarters before he was pulled to start the fourth quarter. CeeDee Lamb went over 150 receiving yards for the fourth straight game and Brandin Cooks enjoyed his best game in a Cowboys uniform with 173 yards and a touchdown.
The defense, meanwhile, allowed 172 total yards and tallied five sacks while DaRon Bland secured his fifth interception of the campaign.
It was the kind of performance fans expected, but not everyone on the team played well. With that in mind, let's highlight some Cowboys who deserve more playing time and a few players who should see a lesser role moving forward.
Cowboys DE Sam Williams deserves more snaps
Williams has really come on strong of late. He made multiple splash plays against the Eagles, including a strip sack of Jalen Hurts. On just 12 snaps, he made two tackles and generated three pressures and two hurries, per PFF.
He's even making plays as a special teams gunner, which is unheard of for a 6-foot-4, 261-pound edge rusher. It's clear Williams, who has a track record of off-field incidents, has bought into his role and is hungry to continue proving himself.
That said, it's frustrating he isn't seeing the field more. He notched one of the Cowboys four sacks against the Giants and has outperformed Dante Fowler and Dorance Armstrong, who've played 26 and 39% of the defensive snaps this season, respectively.
It's time to let Williams out of the cage.
