We haven’t always liked the answers to things in the first two weeks. Let’s see if things go better for the Cowboys.
We have new life! After fearing that the season was all but over for the Dallas Cowboys in the wake of injuries to Dak Prescott, Connor McGovern, Jayron Kearse, and Tarell Basham in a season opener that was a display of offensive ineptitude, our hopes are greatly buoyed by the way the team rallied around Cooper Rush and got a much-needed win over the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals.
But will it last? Next up for Dallas is the surprisingly undefeated New York Giants. The Cowboys opened as underdogs on the betting markets, but there is certainly reason to be suspicious about just how good the Giants are. Their victories were over the Tennessee Titans and the Carolina Panthers, both winless so far and displaying a lot of issues. Clearly it is still very early. This week’s matchup in New Jersey will be as much about determining the reality of the two teams as anything.
