Maybe it was the short turnaround for a Thursday game, maybe it was the illness that passed through their roster in the last few days. For that matter, maybe the Cowboys themselves had a Thanksgiving feast before kickoff. But during a sluggish first half against the New York Giants, this hardly looked like the team that just savaged Minnesota four days prior.
All’s well that ends well. With a flurry of second-half energy, the Cowboys roared to life in time to outscore the Giants, 21-0, down the stretch in a 28-20 win. It came in a game where they committed a disgusting 13 penalties and lost the turnover battle by a healthy 0-2 margin.
“We’ve got to, first off, stop with the penalties. We’ve got to be more disciplined,” said Dak Prescott. “Stop hurting ourselves on drives and self-inflicted wounds – whether it be me turning the ball over, being too aggressive or not on the same page as receivers, false starts. We’ve got to clean all of that stuff up.”
