Giants vs. Cowboys Pre-Game Thoughts by Dan Duggan

My thoughts on the Giants offense before the game:

1.) Daniel Jones better stretch out. The Giants will need his legs. The Giants didn’t do a lot of zone reads in the first meeting, but expect that to change today. Also, I think they will move the bag as much as possible in passing games.

2.) The Giants need Saquon Barkley to carry them. That’s a lot to ask considering his workload. He needs to find some of that preseason juice. He has seven carries from 20+ yards and only two in the last five games. Can he engage more in the passing game?

3.) The offense lately has been vanilla. If there are tricks on the shelf, it’s time to break them out. Throw out some funky formations, whatever. (First of all, the short week makes this more difficult.)

4.) Obviously there’s no good time to finish on the O-line like that, but it’s hard to think of a worse matchup. Not only do the Cowboys have talented pass rushers, they use more stunts/twists than any defense. This will test the joint communication of a group with limited experience.

The Cowboys’ best offense: Dak Prescott almost perfect and Tony Pollard dynamic

It’s a short week and so we need to join the Cowboys and flip to the Giants sooner rather than later. That said, if you think I’m going to let one of the best performances of my time with the Cowboys go by so quickly, you have no idea how I’ve turned in 25 seasons here.

Sunday was an offensive masterpiece and one that felt like it happened with no real urgency. What I mean by that is when it was clear Minnesota had packed his bags and was ready to go — moments within the first-half two-minute warning when Tony Pollard scored his first touchdown to give Dallas a 20-3 give advantage – there was no reason for the cowboys to feel the need to do a whole lot. And yet they have continued to do impressive things on both sides of the ball.

Every time you roll up your most yardage of the season and hand your opponent your lowest yardage of the season, you need to take a moment and enjoy it.

How to look at the Lions loss

Shootout games (competitions in which each team scores 24+ points) are usually a 50-50 proposition, even with strong offenses. That made this a solid approach for the Lions today, but with Detroit 2022 now 2-5 in shootouts and 2-2 in non-shootouts, it’s likely the Lions will have to take a different route once they turn the corner want to bend.

Playoff picture perspective

A five-win Lions team would have been a wild card threat, so today’s loss to Detroit was big for the Giants. The Lions are now 4-7. The Bills improve to 8-3.
