It seems like the New York Giants find a new way to lose every Sunday. This week, it was by allowing backup quarterback Andy Dalton, who replaced an injured Dak Prescott, to lead the Dallas Cowboys down the field in the final seconds of a 37-34 loss at AT&T Stadium.
It was the Giants’ seventh straight loss to the Cowboys and the fifth straight loss to start the Joe Judge era.
This Sunday was a wild game. The Cowboys lost Prescott to a gruesome leg injury not long after he caught a touchdown pass. The Giants had a defensive touchdown, an early 14-point lead and two touchdowns negated.
Still, they managed to lose on a 24-yard field goal as time expired. That came moments after cornerback Ryan Lewis allowed a deep pass to be completed down the right sideline to Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup.
Just when it seemed that the Giants (0-5) might win a game, that dream was crushed. So was any hope of being in the midst of the NFC East race.
The Cowboys (2-3) lead the division but will now be without Prescott. The Eagles (1-3-1) are decimated, and quarterback Carson Wentz has become a turnover machine. Forget about the Washington Football Team, which doesn’t seem to know who will play quarterback.
