Game Notes
The Cowboys defensive line and blitz scheme overwhelmed the New York Giants getting a total of 6 sacks on Eli Manning. Offense was sub-par. Could have put the game away early but wasn't able to convert on several 3rd downs to stay on the field. Won the field position game as well as time of possession.

Comments on Coaching
Deliberate football. Nothing too creative or out of the ordinary on offense. Defensive play calling was on point with timely blitzes.
