NFL Week 3 Power Rankings: Cowboys victory gives them a slight boost

People still aren’t ready to believe yet. So, fresh off a Week 2 win over the Giants, how do the Cowboys look to the rest of the NFL world? Well, it’s a mixed-bag, but let’s just say outsiders aren’t hopping on the bandwagon just yet. Yes, the win over New York did raise the Cowboys standing in the Power Rankings this week, but they are still mainly toward the back-end of the 1-1 teams. Let’s dive in. ESPN: 17. Dallas Cowboys 2018 record: 1-1 Week 2 ranking: 20 The Cowboys are posting a sack on 11.3 percent of opponents’ dropbacks, the second-highest rate in the NFL. From 2014...

Crunching stats: Eight things that show us the Cowboys are on the right trajectory

The improvement from the first game was drastic - and there is room for even more. My, things feel so much better after the Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants by a 20-13 score that made things look a lot closer than they actually were. It is a lot more fun to dive into the stats from the game to pull out some things that we can learn from. Stat sheet scouting is fraught with peril, but with a little judicious interpretation, we can still gather things to inform us going forward. 6 for 6 The Cowboys had six sacks of a shell shocked Eli Manning.

Cowboys news: People are noticing the Cowboys defense, in a good way

And Dan Bailey is going to the Vikings The Morning After: Cowboys unleash full defensive attack on Giants – Bob Sturm, The AthleticThe Sturminator breaks down the Cowboys defense-fueled victory over the Giants, noting that scheme, rather than winning one-on-one battles, generated most of the team's six sacks. Of the six sacks, very few of them were simply a man beating a man. Rather, like Carolina last week, if you can cause confusion about who is coming from where, you can get a free rusher a few yards away from a blocker who has nobody to block. It is where the chess match of scheme...

Here's when Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott knew Cowboys were going to have a good defense

Despite an outstanding overall performance by the Cowboys defense Sunday night, several players voiced displeasure after the game about the one touchdown they allowed late.With 1:27 remaining and Dallas up 20-3, Giants tight end Evan Engram got behind Dallas safety Jeff Heath for what ended up being an 18-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning."I'm pissed personally because that's my fault on that play," Heath said. "They put Odell [Beckham Jr.] in the slot and kind of ran him underneath, knowing that people were going to be keying on him. They just keyed on that guy, tried to take the hook...

FRISCO -- The Cowboys feel better about the state of their offense than they did one week ago.Much better? That would be a stretch.The Cowboys aggressively took control of the game from the start and scraped together enough points against the New York Giants on Sunday night to keep the season from going south in a hurry. Once the offense did bog down for an extended stretch from late in the first quarter until early in the fourth, quarterback Dak Prescott came up with a 14-play, 82-yard touchdown drive to end any doubt.As head coach Jason Garrett said Monday, there was "a lot of encouraging...

Landon Collins had to eat a lot of crow after the Cowboys beat him and he wasn’t happy about it

Challenge completed. New York Giants safety Landon Collins did an awful lot of talking last week. Collins challenged the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, something he’s not very good at historically, and it did not go very well for him when Dak Prescott helped ensure a 20-13 victory for America’s Team on Sunday night. Asked about his infamous (and now obviously incorrect) words after the game, Landon retreated. This is one of the smaller giants that you’ll ever find.

Cowboys' plan was to turn the clock back to 2016 vs. Giants. QB Dak Prescott took it and ran even further back.

ARLINGTON -- After enduring a week of heavy and merited criticism, the Cowboys' plan was to turn back the clock for the national Sunday night audience. Most of us figured 2016 was the target. Dak Prescott went a step (and a year or two) further.Or, as Pro Bowl tweeter Dez Bryant offered in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's 20-13 victory over the Giants:While making a few big throws early, Prescott and the Cowboys offense still sputtered in the passing game as he finished with just 160 yards on 25 attempts, 64 of those coming on a first-quarter touchdown to Tavon Austin. But Prescott...

Dak Prescott, defense lead Cowboys over Giants

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott accepted the challenge. The Dallas quarterback threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin on the third play of the game and the Cowboys sacked Eli Manning six times in a 20-13 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night. The Dallas defense was strong again, just as in an opening loss at Carolina, as the Cowboys (1-1) avoided the first 0-2 start in seven seasons under coach Jason Garrett. Manning and the Giants have started 0-2 for the fifth time in the past six seasons.

Cowboys vs, Giants: It was hardly perfect, but the 20-13 Dallas win was still great to see

There is still room to improve, but this was an incredible leap forward from what we saw a week ago. After the way the season started for the Dallas Cowboys, there were people who were convinced it was already over. But after an imperfect but satisfying 20-13 win over the New York Giants, the Cowboys are 1-1, and now tied for first in the NFC East, and, as they say, in control of their own destiny. OK, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. And there are certainly still some areas of concern for Dallas. But there were also some extremely positive signs, which were few and far between in the...
