Cowboys Crush Giants 40-0 In Sunday Night Football Showcase


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants opening their seasons in prime time on “Sunday Night Football” is nothing out of the ordinary. Neither is the Cowboys manhandling the Giants on those occasions. Dallas marched into the MetLife Stadium and let New York beat itself over and over on the way to a 40-0 victory. By the start of the fourth quarter, with the rain and the home team’s performance driving the crowd away, “Let’s Go Cowboys!” chants filled the stadium.


Historical Dominance

It was the fifth time since 2007 the two teams have played Week 1 on “Sunday Night Football.” Dallas has now won in four of those instances. In the 12 times the two teams have competed to start a campaign, the Cowboys have won all but once. Dallas has won five in a row against New York and have won 12 of the last 13 against their NFC East rival.

Cowboys’ Performance

On Sunday, the Giants simply could not get out of their own way, and the Cowboys were happy for that to be the case. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has thrown more touchdowns against the Giants (23) than any other team in the league, and he didn’t need to add to that total in the blowout win. Contributions and scoring on special teams and defense, plus a pair of short-yardage touchdowns from running back Tony Pollard (14 rushes, 70 yards), made that possible.


Giants’ Struggles

The Giants drove down the field on the first drive of the game with Jones and running back Saquon Barkley moving the chains with their legs. Inside the red zone, rookie center John Michael Schmitz botched the snap and Jones fell on the ball to recover it. Graham Gano trotted out to attempt a 45-yard field goal, but Juanyeh Thomas pierced through the line of scrimmage to block the kick. Offseason acquisition Noah Igbinoghene scooped the loose ball and returned it 58 yards for the Cowboys’ first score of 2023.

Giants’ Struggles Continue

New York never recovered, as the Cowboys pass rush dominated the Giants’ offensive line and had Jones on the run all evening. He finished 15 of 28 with 134 yards (43 rushing yards on 13 attempts) and a 32.4 rating. The Cowboys sacked Jones seven times, with Osa Odighizuwa and Dorance Armstrong racking up two apiece. Dating back to the 2022 postseason loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round, the Giants have been outscored 71-7 in their last two games. They hadn’t been shut out by the Cowboys since Sept. 8, 1996.


Biggest Shutout Victory

The Giants’ 40-0 shutout loss was the largest between the teams, topping the Cowboys’ 35-0 win in 1995, also in a season-opener in the Meadowlands. It was also the Cowboys’ biggest shutout victory in any game, topping their 38-0 win over the Baltimore Colts in 1978.

Cowboys 40, Giants 0: KaVontae Turpin Makes it a 40-Burger

Backup running back KaVontae Turpin scored from seven yards out and the extra point made it 40-0 early in the fourth. In one of the Giants’ most explosive plays all game, Isaiah Hodgins took a slant 24 yards. Trevon Diggs caused his second turnover of the game by punching the ball out, and it was recovered by Israel Mukaumu. Cooper Rush replaced Prescott at quarterback on the ensuing drive.

Family Affair: Stefon Diggs Watches Brother Trevon

"The Dallas Cowboys dominated the New York Giants in a stunning 40-0 victory on Sunday Night Football, showcasing their prowess in NFL Week 1."

Bills receiver Stefon Diggs and his mother Stephanie were on hand to watch his younger brother, Dallas CB Trevon Diggs, dominate the Giants. The NFL schedule synched up perfectly for the Diggs family. Both Diggs brothers are playing at the same stadium opening weekend in primetime games. Stefon Diggs and the Bills will take on Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets during a Monday Night Football matchup at MetLife Stadium, home to both the Giants and Jets, one day after the Cowboys face the Giants.

Dak Prescott’s Tribute to His Late Mother

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and his brother, Tad, got matching tattoos to honor their late mother, Peggy, on Monday according to TMZ Sports. Prescott’s mother passed away in 2013 after a battle with cancer. The two brothers decided to get the tattoo last Monday on what would have been their mother’s 62nd birthday.

Cowboys 33, Giants 0: Tony Pollard Adds Another TD

This one is officially a laugher. Dallas took the first drive of the second half 75 yards in less than five minutes to go up 33-0. Tony Pollard broke a 25-yard run to push the Cowboys downfield and his second touchdown of the game from one yard out capped the drive.

Halftime: Cowboys 26, Giants 0

You wouldn’t believe it by checking the score, but the Giants and Cowboys had the same number of first downs (8) in the first half. Dallas outgained New York, 132-81, though. And the Cowboys led by 26 points after the first 30 minutes.

Trevon Diggs Advises Giants Not to ‘Throw the Ball’

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs has a message for the Giants: “Do not throw the ball anymore.” He said as much to his teammates on the sideline after Dallas recorded three takeaways — one by special teams and two by the defense — in the first half of the Cowboys’ divisional matchup against the Giants.

Giants’ Latest Chance at Points Goes Wide Left

Only bad things have happened for the Giants in field-goal formation. Graham Gano’s 36-yard attempt, on a drive the Giants converted a 4th-and-5 from midfield, sailed wide left and never had a chance to keep Big Blue scoreless with 65 seconds before halftime.

Cowboys 26, Giants 0: All Dallas So Far at MetLife Stadium

What looked like another wasted play by the Giants was actually worse. As Daniel Jones tried to escape out of bounds and make a throw across his body near the right sideline, with Micah Parsons in hot pursuit, Stephon Gilmore – another offseason edition by general manager Jerry Jones – went low and scraped the ball off the newly-installed MetLife Stadium turf for another Giants turnover.

Cowboys 19, Giants 0: Brandon Aubrey Adds Another Field Goal

Aided by a 37-yard pass interference penalty that flipped the field, the Cowboys built on their lead with another Brandon Aubrey field goal (38 yards).

Rough First Quarter for Daniel Jones

At the end of the first quarter, New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was 1 of 5 for 0 yards and an interception. He’s also been sacked twice. New York had the ball for nearly 11 minutes, but found themselves trailing by two scores.

Cowboys 16, Giants 3: This Time, Defense Scores for Dallas

Two touchdowns for the Cowboys – none by the offense. This time, it was the defense’s turn. Facing another third and long, Daniel Jones tried to step up in the pocket to escape pressure, but Randy Gregory stripped the ball out and Dorrance Armstrong scooped it up and returned it to the house for another Cowboys touchdown.

Giants’ Possession Following Block Field Goal Ends Quickly

After being gifted great field position following the Cowboys’ fumbled punt return, the Giants wasted the opportunity to cut into Dallas’ lead. New York’s drive lasted all of one play as Parsons, who’s spent a lot of time as a stand-up outside linebacker so far, knifed into the backfield untouched and buried Jones for another sack. It was the Giants’ fifth possession, but just their third offensive snap as they’ve gone three-and-out on back-to-back drives.

Another Dallas Drive Ends in Points

Again, the Cowboys move the ball, but the drive stalls in the red zone. This time, they settled for another field goal from Brandon Aubrey, this one from 40 yards out. But at least this time, the Cowboys offense managed to gain a few first downs and chew up a decent chunk of clock. 13-0, Cowboys.

Cowboys’ Opening Drive Ends in Field Goal

It wasn’t exactly the fast start the Giants were hoping for. The Cowboys easily moved the ball on their opening drive, going 49 yards in seven plays to set up a 36-yard field goal by Brandon Aubrey. Dallas looked like they were in business when Pollard found a huge hole on third and short and rumbled down to the Giants 21, but their drive sputtered from there.

Injury Update for Giants’ Offensive Line

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll confirmed that backup offensive lineman Korey Cunningham will take the field in place of starter Brian Winters. Winters missed practice on Thursday and Friday and was questionable for the game due to a non-COVID illness. Now, it is confirmed that he will not be able to play. This is a big loss for the Giants offensive line as Winters was set to be the starting right guard. Cunningham will have to step up and fill in against a very talented Dallas Cowboys defensive front.

Pre-Game Conditions for Cowboys vs. Giants

The New York Giants will start the 2023 NFL season in their home opener against the Dallas Cowboys. Weather conditions in East Rutherford, New Jersey are currently cloudy with a 70% chance of rain. The temperature is around 74°F (23°C). The game is scheduled to kick off at 8:20 PM Eastern Time.
