Things quite literally could not have gone any better for Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. In the Sunday Night Football matchup against the NY Giants, the G-Men were hoping to post an upset over Prescott and Co.
However, the Giants weren't able to get the job done... not even close. In incredible fashion, the Cowboys dominated New York and left East Rutherford with a stunning 40-0 win. Who in the world saw this coming?
Dak Prescott and the Cowboys are dreaming of a trip to the Super Bowl
We don't want to get ahead of ourselves, but Dallas made an unreal statement on Sunday. One that should put the rest of the league on notice. It's been nearly 30 years since the Cowboys last won the NFC, but this team has a real shot of doing so in 2023.
The Giants entered Week 1 with an unreal amount of buzz. Tight end Darren Waller was deemed healthy enough to play and Giants fans thought he'd have his way with the Dallas defense. Waller ended up being held to only three receptions.
As for the pass-rush, the Dallas defense was living in the backfield all night. The group sacked Daniel Jones a mind-boggling seven times, including four takedowns in the first half. Jones had one of the worst games of his career. He barely had time to breathe before throwing the ball away.
Prescott was barely needed in the 40-point victory, but he made several fantastic throws that had fans excited. On the night, Prescott went 13-of-24 for 143 yards and no turnovers. He wasn't sacked once and was barely pressured.
This of course wasn't the kind of showing that would make Prescott's Fantasy Football owners happy, but there are no complaints from Dallas supporters. Dak is playing with an incredible amount of confidence right now and that's bad news for the rest of the conference. We can't wait to see what he can get done this fall and winter.
