Recap

NEW YORK GIANTS @ WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM

The Giants were finally able to win a close game after a string of close losses, besting Washington 23-20. Washington’s five turnovers proved to be the difference maker. The Football Team was able to climb out of a 20-3 halftime hole but the turnovers cost them a chance to complete the comeback.

Daniel Jones played a clean game for New York, throwing for 212 yards and a touchdown with no turnovers. Jones is now 4-0 against Washington as a starter and 1-16 against everyone else. Alfred Morris impressed in his Giants debut at running back, gaining 67 yards on nine carries. 

On the other hand, Washington QB Kyle Allen left the game early after suffering a broken ankle. Alex Smith entered the game and despite throwing for 325 yards, struggled to protect the ball and threw three picks. Two of the interceptions were late and were particularly ugly. Terry McLaurin had a good game in the loss, hauling in seven passes for 115 yards and a touchdown.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ DALLAS COWBOYS

The Cowboys were in position for a huge upset and to be the first blemish on the Steelers’ undefeated record. Dallas held a 13-0 lead late in the first half but ultimately couldn’t hang on, falling 24-19 to Pittsburgh. 

Cowboys QB Garrett Gilbert played surprisingly well all things considered. Gilbert finished 21-38 for 243 yards with a touchdown and an interception. However, his interception came early in the fourth quarter and allowed the Steelers to cut the lead to one before scoring what would amount to be the game winning touchdown on their next drive. 

Ezekiel Elliott once again failed to cross 100 yards rushing, finishing with 51 yards on 18 carries. CeeDee Lamb had a nice day receiving, catching 4 balls for 71 yards and a touchdown. But, Lamb did have a fumble that lead to a Pittsburgh field goal.
