Last week http://www.dallascowboysteamon…..ins-jersey , it appeared as if the Cowboys season was already finished. The trade for Amari Cooper did not help Dallas get back on a track with a win following the bye week, the defense turned in its worst performance of the year, and the coaching staff was under more fire than ever after falling to a then 3-4 Tennessee Titans squad at home. It was anything but good vibes in Dallas.Then, the Cowboys went out there and did that — knock off their arch-nemesis in enemy territory by running the ball down their throats and enforcing their will in a must-win game. The victory shows us how good this team can be when things are clicking right.Philadelphia and their top-10 ranked total defense welcomed in a struggling Cowboys offense — that had contemplated moving on from the man that is currently calling the plays — for a Sunday Night Football showdown. As expected, all but one of the BTB front-page writers picked the Eagles to come out victorious. (Shoutout OCC)Dallas had other plans. Behind a monster performance from running back Ezekiel Elliott — 151 yards, 7.9 yards-per-carry average, and two total touchdowns against the league’s second-ranked run defense — and a bounce-back game from quarterback Dak Prescott — 270 yards passing and two total scores on a 72% completion rate — the Cowboys saved their 2018 season in a big, big way.It wasn’t just the points that the Cowboys were able to put up against a top-5 scoring defense, it was the way that they were able to do it. We have discussed that Ezekiel Elliott has struggled at times this season, as has the offensive line Youth Sean Lee Jersey , but on Sunday we saw a team that showed that they can run the football on anybody. Zeke averaged just under eight yards per rush and he often made the defenders look silly, such as this instance:Zeke looked like his old self and it came at the perfect time. It helped Dak Prescott put together one of his best statistical games of the year. Prescott had some plays that he and the team will want back when watching the tape, but the third-year signal caller led some gusty touchdown drives at times when the Cowboys needed them the most — the drive just before the half certainly comes to mind.Sunday night was huge for the confidence of this offense. They showed that they are capable of winning on the road while putting up points against a well-regarded defense that possesses a very strong front. The million dollar question is this: will it carry over, or was this a one-game thing? The way this season has gone, it would not be a surprise if it is the latter; however, the victory on Sunday Night Football is certainly a huge step in a positive direction.Cowboys vs. Giants: Five bold predictions for the game Sunday night It’s pretty intense how gigantic a Week 2 game feels. The Dallas Cowboys will host the New York Giants on Sunday night, and when they do both teams will be fighting for a win, and more important, for the right to not start the season 0-2.Everyone knows the story about how the 1993 Dallas Cowboys started 0-2 with Emmitt Smith holding out, hampering the team’s chances early on. People are also very aware of the New York Giants also started off 0-2 in 2007 before they’d break Cowboys fans hearts in the divisional round of the playoffs months later. As you know Color Rush Byron Jones Jersey , both of these teams won the Super Bowl. Those are exceptions to the rule, 0-2 is a huge hole.A Cowboys and Giants showdown on Sunday Night Football is a staple in today’s NFL so it’s a bit poetic that it would be these teams, these rivals, looking to outlast the other in what feels like a game of survival this week. Either franchise will look to their past should they be the one to lose, but neither wants that to be an option. 1-1 is the goal.This game is epic, there’s no way to deny that. Let’s hope it’s a lot of fun with the kind of result that we like. Here are this week’s bold predictions.Anthony Brown will pick off Eli Manning The forgotten man in the secondary a year ago, Anthony Brown made us all remember him in the 2017 season opener when he picked off Eli Manning. It was the second interception of Brown’s career and the second off of Eli. Funny how that works out. What’s the old saying? If you do something twice in a row it’s a tradition? Well Anthony has picked off Eli two years in a row so literally 100% of data supports that he’ll intercept him this year, right? Right?Obviously there are two instances where Brown will be eligible to pick off Eli, but let’s go ahead and cash this out right now please and thanks.The Giants won’t cross midfield in the first halfIf there’s one thing on the Cowboys that we’re all universally confident in, it’s the defense. Dallas has a bevy of playmakers at every level on that side of the ball and they get to feature DeMarcus Lawrence against Ereck Flowers Color Rush Chidobe Awuzie Jersey , which is a very good thing.The New York Giants put together over 300 total yards of offense in their season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars which is a little shocking when you say it out loud given the caliber of that defense. It’s not like the G-Men had a great day against the Jags, and it’s not like Eli Manning stopped being himself since then.Dallas is going to try and put together long and methodical drives when they’re on offense early on and when you couple that with who their defense is against who the Giants are, it doesn’t seem like they’ll have success early on.No Cowboys receiver will catch a touchdownThis game has the feel of a lot of field goals and very few touchdowns overall, but I do think that we’re going to see Dak Prescott throw one or two; however, they won’t be to wide receivers.Remember when Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs went something 148 games in a row without throwing a touchdown to a wide receiver? That’s what it feels like we’re on the verge of. Troy Aikman questioned the creativity (the lack of it, obviously) within the Cowboys offense last week, and that’s hardly something that gets fixed in seven days.We’re going to see some tight end, fullback, and/or running back-caught touchdowns against the Giants. Reminds me of Deon Anderson 10 years ago. Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty ImagesJason Garrett will go for at least one fourth downThe Cowboys are 0 for 1 on fourth down conversions this season, and you never want that to be the case. People like to accuse Jason Garrett of being a conservative head coach (a topic for another day) Color Rush Joe Looney Jersey , but going for it on fourth down isn’t something he’s afraid of. You can see this materializing. The Cowboys will have the ball about 10 yards past midfield, be facing a 4th and 1, and Jason Garrett will leave the offense out there. What will happen when he goes for it? Will they hand the ball to Zeke, utilize some play action, or let Dak Prescott run some sort of RPO? We’ll have to wait and see.The Cowboys will hold the lead after every quarterAs this does feel like a low-scoring game it doesn’t feel like we’re going to have a whole lot of change. You can just sense that points are going to be hard to come by and something each team is really going to have to work for. The Cowboys won both of their meetings against the Giants last season, and they really exploded on offense in the second one. Obviously these two teams know each other very well, but the Cowboys seem to be the more desperate team and sometimes that’s enough to win out.Let’s hope that’s the case. Custom Indianapolis Colts Jerseys
