The Dallas Cowboys managed to move to 4-1 on the 2021 season, defeating a New York Giants team running on fumes after losing multiple key offensive players to violent and gruesome injuries. Dallas nonetheless poured it on, outscoring the Giants 27-10 in the second half to take a two-game lead in the NFC East.
It was a familiar path to victory for Dallas, who’s offense shows no signs of slowing down while the defense continues to generate turnovers at just the right time. It’s a recipe the Cowboys should hope to replicate many times throughout the year on the way towards a deep playoff run.
The Dallas defense is currently riding a nine-game streak with multiple takeaways after forcing two turnovers today against the N.Y. Giants, the longest active streak in the NFL. It is Dallas’ longest string of games since since a nine-game streak in the 1983 season:
