ARLINGTON — The hype for a new season was real out at AT&T Stadium, and with Romo sidelined, Cowboys Nation had Dak Prescott fever!
But the Giants had the cure on Sunday, outlasting the Boys 20 to 19.
“There’s some things I want back, some plays I want to redo I guess you could say, but for the most part I felt like I prepared, coaches did a good job,” said Prescott after the game. “Offense did well for the most part we’ve just got to score touchdowns down there in the red zone.
The Dak Debut had its moments, with the rookie leading five scoring drives, but thanks to a number of little miscues they had to settle for field goals on 4 of those.
A huge mental error by Terrance Williams, where he stayed in-bounds in the final seconds instead of getting out of bounds to stop the clock, robbed Dan Bailey of a chance to make a fifth.
“Just keep your head up,” Dez Bryant said after the game when talking about Williams’ mistake. “You know it is what it is, there’s nothing we can do about it. There’s no need to get down or bash anybody. We’ve got to move forward. It’s something that we can learn from and just get better as a football team and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”
So Dallas drops to 0-1 on the season, but bigger than that, the Boys are now 1-14 in their last 15 games without Romo.
If that streak doesn’t end, Sunday may have just been the start of another long season in Big D.
