After a poor offensive showing in Week One against the Carolina Panthers, the 0-1 Dallas Cowboys will head into Week Two trying to post their first win of the regular season against a familiar foe, the 0-1 New York Giants.
The Cowboys offense struggled to score just eight points in their 16-8 defeat at the hands of the Panthers in Carolina last weekend. The Giants also received a notch in the loss column in Week One, coming up short against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Big Apple, 20-15.
Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott and his relatively new wide receiver corps will once again be pressed into action as New York’s defense will undoubtedly go all-in on stopping running back Ezekiel Elliott and Dallas’ rushing attack. Whether Prescott and his band of receivers are up to the challenge is yet to be determined.
Defensively, the Cowboys showed a lot of promise last weekend against the Panthers. Facing a Giants’ offense full of various weapons, Dallas could have the upper hand if veteran quarterback Eli Manning continues to struggle.
Both the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys look to shake off a 0-1 start on Sunday Night Football in Week 2 of the 2018 NFL season.
Week 1 didn’t go as planned for the New York Giants. It also didn’t go the way the Dallas Cowboys hoped. Both teams dropped their openers, which was a tough blow after each had an offseason of hope.
For the Giants that hope was in the return to health of Odell Beckham Jr., the addition of rookie running back Saquon Barkley, and the removal of Ben McAdoo as head coach. However, in Pat Shurmur’s debut with the G-Men, they ran into a defensive powerhouse in the Jaguars and a 0-1 start was the result.
