EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — The Cowboys stormed into New York, wearing a new jersey combo and needing a win against the Giants to keep their playoff hopes alive.
For three quarters it was a dog fight with the Boys scrapping for every inch, even finding themselves behind 10-3 to the two-win Giants. But they triumphed in the 4th quarter, pulling away to trounce New York, 30-10 to earn the season sweep over their rivals.
After 4 straight rough weeks, Dak Prescott came alive for one of his best games ever, throwing for 332 yards and 3 TDs to lock up the huge win.
Backup running back Rod Smith also had the best game of his career, running for 47 yards and a touchdown, as well as leading the team in receiving with 5 catches for 113 yards, including an 81 yard score.
Sean Lee was a welcome face back on defense, leading his squad with 18 tackles and a game clinching interception in his first game back since missing 3 weeks with a hamstring injury.
Now the Boys are 7-6. The goals are still clear: win out, get a little help, and get into the playoffs. Still not easy, but after winning the last two, it’s not impossible at all.
