Dallas Cowboys Good, Bad, and Ugly From Week 5 Against New York Giants

    The move into first place in the East division after their 37-34 victory over the division rival , but they paid a hefty price to do so. They likely lost and Defensive to season-ending and the ripple effects of both injuries are likely to have a huge impact on the rest of the Cowboys .

    The Dallas Cowboys remaining success or failure now depends on the play of former starting QB . The Cowboys are no doubt fortunate to have such an experienced QB, however, he's more than likely a downgrade from Dak Prescott. Only time will tell though, but for now everything depends on No. 14's play moving forward.

    All of that discussion is best saved for another time though. Today, let's get to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly for the Dallas Cowboys from their Week 5 matchup with the New York Giants. As always, feel free to share your own thoughts and opinions on this topic in the comment section.

    Let's get started…

    The Good

    is arguably the hero of the game due to his two clutch catches to put the Dallas Cowboys in range for the game-winning field goal, but for me was the good yesterday against New York Giants. He was targeted 11 times against the Giants and caught eight passes for 124 receiving yards. He's quickly becoming the Cowboys most consistent WR and cementing himself with the other Cowboys greats to wear No. 88. Not too shabby for a rookie.

    The Bad

    I think we all know what the bad was for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. The bad is obviously the devastating ankle Dak Prescott sustained. Love him or hate him, he is no doubt the heart and soul of this team. He was having a historic 2020 season, but just like that it looks like it's all but over. His teammates are going to have to figure out some way to push forward without him and a lot of that will fall on how well Andy Dalton plays the rest of the season.

    The Ugly

    What wasn't ugly for the Dallas Cowboys yesterday against the New York Giants!? Nearly every bit of it was ugly. I honestly couldn't single out one thing so instead I'm lumping it all together. Pretty much from start to finish the Cowboys played exactly the way we've seen them play thus far this season. They continue to turrn over the ball, make mental mistakes, and play poorly on . They absolutely deserved to lose this game and were extremely fortunate to come out on top.

    What is your good, bad, and ugly for the Dallas Cowboys from Week 5?

    Andy Dalton is a passing upgrade. He will look great with the offensive talent we have.

    Cowboy Fan Ed

    The Good :With the offense line being put together with different players that we are not use to seeing I don’t think they played all that bad! Sure there is room for improvement but considering everything they played ok! The Bad: Again our run defense is just plan pathetic! Has Poe even been in on a tackle yet much less made a solo? The Ugly: thanks goodness the Giants tackle didn’t get set on that fake field goal! Who in the world is coaching these guys ? As a DB you always check to see if you have a wide out lining up near the side line in these situations!


    I don’t like the tackle made on Dak,swinging and throwing your weight on a limb like that, on anyone’s ankle would have broken under that type of stress. It should be really looked at. It is not quite the same a the Roy Williams type tackle… but should be illegal. Does anyone agree?

    Cowboy Fan Ed

    Yep Buzz I thought it looked like he was trying to put Dak in an awkward position with his legs but i hope that wasn’t the case and that he was trying to get him down the best way he could ! But it makes me wonder!

    Andy Dalton an upgrade over Dak? ILMAO l

    Lawrence Baker

    Sick of Tyron Smith and La’el Collins. As soon as they’re both healthy (if that ever happens) we should move on from both of them. Some other team may be willing to trade for them.
