As much as we hate to admit this, the Cowboys are still America's team. They are the most hated, most talked about, most loved, most controversial, have the best fans, and own the most annoying fans, all dependent on who you ask. Dallas continues to remain relevant, because love them or hate, people still talk about them. Picture this, a franchise has not won anything in 27 years, but they still have equal cheers, boos, and unprecedented media coverage that every other team could only hope for. Jerry Jones does not care what anybody thinks bout the Cowboys, just as long as people think about them.
The Cowboys and Giants meet for on primetime for one of their two annual meetings, and as per usual this game has already attracted a ton of interests. The Cowboys opened up with a lackluster performance by Dak Prescott and the inefficient offense, which would ultimately lead to a 19-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Cowboys night got “worse” when Dak Prescott went down with a significant injury to his throwing hand.
The next game was started by Cooper Rush. We do not want to get ahead of ourselves, but he is 2-0 as a starter with two game-winning drives. The future? The Cowboys did face the Bengals at home, a team that may be suffering from a Super Bowl defeat hangover. This makes the Cowboys an especially tough read in the early going.
Cooper Rush played well enough on Sunday. He threw for 299 yards on 26-44 passing and had one touchdown with no turnovers. We do recognize the one constant for Dallas, Micah Parsons and their defense.
The Giants will play hosts at MetLife stadium, and they may be the worst 2-0 team in NFL history. The Titans and Panthers are not quite the resume builders needed for the New York Giants to count 2-0 as successful. Saquon Barkley has 236 yards on just 39 rushing attempts this season, good for an average of six yards per carry. The Giant’s defense has played really well to open the season, but against poor opponents they also become a tough read.

Daniel Jones has just 364 yards through the air after two games, and an over-aggressive Dallas secondary could also prove troublesome to find success for Jones.
