Halftime Report: Cowboys Show Flashes on Both Sides, Lead Giants 6-3

    After two quarters on , the lead the 6-3. While the score indicates a low-scoring affair, the Cowboys have shown flashes on both sides of the ball–but they haven't been able to capitalize and finish.

    On the , the Boys only grabbed two FGs on two of their five drives. Their biggest miss was when they got in the after driving 53-yards on five plays, and QB threw to WR –but he was held during the play.

    A should have been called on the for pass interference or holding, but it's football and calls sometimes get missed.

    The stars on offense in the first half were WR Noah Brown and RBs and . One of the biggest plays that Brown had was a 19-yard catch on first-down, as he climbed the ladder and caught the ball on his fingertips.


    On the running backs side, both have looked explosive in their runs, and I can't lie that I was surprised when Elliott broke out for a 20-plus yard run. Let's hope the team keeps feeding both running backs, as they are wearing down the Giants defense.

    Jumping to the defense, there have been three guys who deserve their flowers. DEs , , and LB have all created massive pressures on Giants QB –and it was nice to see both Armstrong and Lawrence connect on .

    However, this play below was the play of the first half as Parsons showed his freak abilities and almost got a sack on Jones.

    If there were any flaws I could point out, it has to be WR dropping two crucial catches and K missing a long-field goal before halftime. With Lamb, he had the ball in his hands on a long-gain and on one that could have got them closer in field goal range–but he dropped both.

    With Maher, he missed a long 57-yard FG before the half, but the of him hitting it was slim. Let's hope the Cowboys can put up more points in the second half and create some turnovers.

    If I’m not mistaken, Brett Maher missed from 59, not 57!! I know it’s not that much of a difference, but if he was that 2 yards closer I think he would have made it!!
