The Dallas Cowboys (10-4) defeated an error-plagued New York Giants (4-10) team 21-6 on Sunday. The Giants lost convincingly to the Cowboys for a second and final time this season.

The NFC East-leading Cowboys can clinch a playoff berth later Sunday with a loss or tie by New Orleans or a loss by San Francisco.

Dak Prescott threw for 217 yards and a touchdown. Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard rushed for a combined 126 yards and a touchdown. The offense did not score as much as they should, but they did capitalize on opportunities.   

The game was not as close as the score. The Giants committed four turnovers, two resulting in points for Dallas. Mike Glennon was 13-24 with 99 yards and threw three interceptions. Saquon Barkley and Devontae Booker combined 124 yards. Barkley fumbled with 41 seconds left before halftime, resulting in a field goal for Dallas.  

Dallas has four takeaways in three straight games. They have achieved that feat nine times in their history, the last time being in 1994. Trevon Diggs recorded his league-leading 10th interception in the fourth quarter. 

Incompetent Offense

The Giants’ offense looked as incompetent as ever. They were mathematically in reach of making it a game, but nothing positive ever came from the offense. 

They are averaging 11.8 points in their past five games.

Third-string quarterback Jake Fromm made his NFL debut after taking over for a benched Glennon in the final minutes of the game. He connected on a big 36-yard pass to Kenny Golladay

Once again, it was kicker Graham Gano stopping a complete embarrassment. He kicked the only points the Giants scored.  

The only real accomplishment the Giants achieved was breaking rookie Micah Parsons‘ streak of making a full sack in six straight games.

Injuries

Giants: WR Sterling Shepard left the game late with a torn Achilles (out for season). Backup RB Gary Brightwell left early with a neck injury. Adoree Jackson (quad), Aaron RobinsonJohn Ross, Kadarius Toney, Cam Brown and Oshane Ximines were put on the reserve-COVID-19 list this past week and did not play.

Cowboys: OT Tyron Smith missed the game with an ankle injury.

The Giants travel to Philly to take on the Eagles on Dec. 26.
