RB Antonio Gibson Carves up Dallas Cowboys Defense on Thanksgiving

Antonio Gibson continues to dominate the Cowboys in Week 12.

Call it clairvoyance or wishful thinking, but according to his twitter account Running Back Antonio Gibson apparently knew he had a chance of doing something big on Thanksgiving against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12. Boy was he right…

I can’t ever personally recall the Dallas Cowboys being on any Thanksgiving day menu I’ve ever seen, but they certainly were for Antonio Gibson yesterday afternoon. The Cowboys weren’t just the main course for No. 24, they were all the fixings and desserts as well and he feasted on it all.

Antonio Gibson carved up the Dallas Cowboys defense to the tune of 115 yards and three touchdowns on the ground on just 20 carries and an additional 21 yards through the air. This was his second 100-yard rushing game in 2020 and surprisingly enough the other was against the Cowboys as well back in Week 7.

It’s probably a little too early to say Antonio Gibson is a superstar in the making, but the Dallas Cowboys certainly made him look like one this season. In two games this year against the Cowboys he’s rushed for a total of 243 yards and four touchdowns. If that’s not dominating opponent I don’t know what is.

I knew Gibson was going to be a problem for the Dallas Cowboys and actually wrote about it earlier this week. I really thought they’d have a better game plan in place to contain Washington’s rookie RB, but sadly that wasn’t the case at all. Instead, he made them look silly.

Antonio Gibson pretty much enforced his will on the Cowboys defense from start to finish yesterday afternoon. His domination is either a testament to his talent or the lack of preparedness on Dallas’ part, possibly both. Whatever was, there’s no denying Gibson has the Cowboys number this year.

After pretty much having the ball forced down their throat it will be interesting to see how the Cowboys defense responds from here on out. Now dead last in the NFC East they really have little to play for here on out. It wouldn’t be completely surprising if Antonio Gibson’s dominant performance ends up being the reason things start falling apart.

What do you think?

  1. I’ve been harping on this problem for at least a couple of years. If you can’t stop the run, or at least slow it down, YOU ARE DONE!

    THE COWBOYS HAVE NEGLECTED THE DEFENSIVE TACKLE POSITION FOR YEARS!

    THE RESULTS – TRUCK SIZED HOLES, HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS CAN RUN THRU! THAT LAST GIBSON (3rd rounder) TD RUN, HE WAS UNTOUCHED!

    If we don’t address this huge deficiency at the DT position first and foremost, than this disgraceful, unacceptable result will just continue.

    AND there was a lot more involved in this game to point out:
    * Dropped TD pass by Lamb, (BTW, he flubbed a pass right in his hands in the Steeler game that resulted in
    an INT and changed the MOMENTUM in that game.
    * Zeke fumble,
    * Unsuccessful fake punt,
    * Injured Martin and Erving,
    * An unblocked Sweat INT,
    * Not punching in from the 4 yard line, after Smith INT,
    ETC, ETC, ETC.

  2. All I can say is I’m just flat embarrassed how the Cowboys played yesterday! The game was a lot closer than the score indicated! CD is a good player BUT he just hasn’t showed me that he is as good as advertised! Sure he made a play against the Vikings but I thought he would come out and burn every DB that lined up against him! I just haven’t seen that yet!! I was under the impression that he was the next Randy Moss being a deep Threat that couldn’t be stoped! Did he even catch a ball over 20 yards? I know for a second time this season on fourth down he runs a route a yard short but maybe he will develop into the receiver that he is built up to be! Guess I just needed to vent ! It’s not all his fault but I just expected more from him

  3. Questionable coaching decisions to say the least. The same porous defense we have seen all season. Almost comical special teams play at times and we can only score 16 pts on this team? This team just needs a complete reboot. Nightmare season and painful for all the diehard fans to watch.

  4. I agree Gary b! I didn’t even want to into the defense situation I’ve beat that drum all season and guess coach M and JJ has decided not to heed to my advice!! Ha
