Cowboys Victory Over Giants Part 1
With a pass from Tony Romo to Jason Witten and just 13 seconds left on the game clock, the Dallas Cowboys took the win over the New York Giants 27-26, here we share some interesting points covering the most important moments from the game.
The Cowboys offensive line is tremendous.
It seems obvious but really there is nothing more valuable in the Lone Star team than the five men lining up in front of the attack. We knew this from last year’s team and now after 60 minutes of action we are reaffirming it.
Despite the fact that guard Ron Leary had a groin injury, Mackenzy Bernadeau came in to replace the guard so gently that the change was almost imperceptible, All that this team could achieve speaking offensively was due to this picture; a ground attack that amassed more than 80 yards a Tony Romo with more than three seconds to throw the football constantly and pretty much left the field unscathed.
The time of possession.
“Who cares about the score if we have the most possession time?” – said no one ever.
Apparently the Cowboys came out to play with that mentality, leaving the advance on halt at least twice without scoring 4 points, settling for FGs instead of TDs.
Definitely the team did not need this approach to squeeze the clock, his attack was clearly superior to the Giants’ defense and if they had only increased possessions, they had increased their points on the scoreboard just by pure simple probability. The last scoring for the final number to go up 23-20 in the fourth quarter and the drive of the victory proves it.
This lets us witness the level of deficiencies with the Giants defensive and the fact that the offense and attack of the Cowboys remains confident that the offensive lines will open up the holes needed for whoever wants to run the ball will run it successfully.
On the Giants, even though they were never able to put together a long enough offensive drive for the clock to go down, they did things very efficiently taking advantage of the mistakes from the Dallas defense and turning it into points in their favor, a completely opposite take from the Cowboys offense.
