The Dallas Cowboys and Cooper Rush play the New York Giants tonight in the season’s opening divisional game.
Dallas’ season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sent the world into a tailspin. The fan support went into meltdown after an offensive performance that produced just three points and a hand injury to Dak Prescott.
Against the Bengals, Cooper Rush was thrown into the starting lineup and excelled. Many people did not think Mike McCarthy’s team had a chance, but they came through with a difficult 20-17 victory at home.
The better New York Giants will play next at Monday Night Football’s MetLife Stadium. Due largely to Saquon Barkley, the Giants have defeated the Titans and Panthers this season. The running back averages slightly over six yards per carry, totaling 236 yards of rushing.
Dallas will aim to outperform Cincinnati after last week’s performance, as it is the first divisional game of the year.
But how do they manage it?
