Recap

NEW YORK GIANTS @ DALLAS COWBOYS 

The Cowboys cruised to a 44-20 win over the Giants thanks to 515 total yards of offense and a slew of injuries hitting the Giants. New York lost Daniel Jones, Kenny Golladay, and Saquon Barkley among others in this game. They struggled to generate much offense after these injuries as backup QB Mike Glennon finished with 196 yards with a touchdown and two picks. Rookie WR Kadarius Toney had a breakout game with ten catches for 189 yards before being ejected for throwing a punch in the fourth quarter. 

Dallas had no such trouble on offense, with Ezekiel Elliott rushing for 110 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. Both Elliott and Tony Pollard averaged over five yards per carry. Elliott added a touchdown on a reception from Dak Prescott who threw for three scores and a pick with 302 yards. On defense, the Cowboys forced two turnovers including yet another interception from Trevon Diggs, his sixth of the season and extending his streak of games with at least one to five.

New Orleans Saints @ WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM

Washington struggled to stop Jameis Winston and the Saints passing attack in a 33-22 loss at home. Winston threw for four touchdowns including one on a Hail Mary to end the first half. Marquez Callaway caught that Hail Mary and one other score as part of a 4 catches for 85 yards performance. Washington’s defense has now given up the second most points in the NFL this season with 155 through five games, trailing only the Chiefs’ 163.

Taylor Heinicke struggled at QB for Washington, completing just under 50% of his passes and throwing two interceptions with no touchdowns. Antonio Gibson scored two touchdowns on the ground but totaled just 60 yards on 20 carries. Cole Holcomb had the one interception of Winston for his first pick of the season.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES @ Carolina Panthers

The Eagles won an ugly game for both teams thanks to a second half in which they outscored Carolina 14-3 for a 21-18 win. Jalen Hurts led the comeback after a brutal first half in which at one point he had 10 completions for 34 yards and a brutal interception. Hurts finished with two touchdowns on the ground and 198 passing yards on 22/38 passing. 

Philadelphia’s defense was the story, as they picked off Sam Darnold three times including two from Darius Slay. Slay had just one interception all of 2020 in his first season with the team. The Eagles’ defensive line harassed Darnold all day, hitting him a total of eight times with three sacks. Javon Hargrave and Fletcher Cox led the way with a sack and pair of QB hits each.
