Plays on Monday Night Football vs. Dallas Cowboys

A 2-0 start is impressive, even if it’s against teams that have struggled out of the gate. The New York Giants have usually been the team starting out 0-2 with frustrating losses but this year, they were part of the reason the Titans and Panthers each started with that dreaded mark as they secured one-score wins over each.

Now, they head into Monday Night Football for their first real test of the season as they host the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott is out and Cooper Rush will get the start but he’s been solid under center and the Cowboys defense can give Daniel Jones fits. A win would be huge for them and would put a divisional rival in a tough hole.

Jerry Jones can’t help himself. After spending all offseason butchering one move after another, he now wants to stir up a quarterback controversy that isn’t there — nor should it be. Cooper Rush has done a fine job as the Dallas Cowboys starter when called upon but he’s no Dak Prescott.

Of course, Jones just likes to talk and likes when the camera is on him. It’s the main reason it’s hard to believe in this team. No matter how much talent they have, he will always get in the way. And when his son, Stephen Jones, is fully running the team, it will be tougher to believe in them because his favorite player is Cap Space.

Even with all that being said, they could find a way to be 2-1 if they can knock off the Giants. This would keep them within range of the Eagles but that team appears head and shoulders above Dallas right now. In every facet — from players to ownership.
