Recap

DALLAS COWBOYS @ NEW YORK GIANTS

The Dallas defense turned in another dominating performance in this game, collecting four turnovers and keeping the Giants out of the endzone in a 21-6 win. New York quarterback Mike Glennon was intercepted three times and held to 13/24 passing for 99 yards before being benched halfway through the fourth quarter. Trevon Diggs had one of the picks, pushing his league-best total to 10 on the season. 

The Cowboys offense wasn’t particularly impressive either, but nevertheless they were able to capitalize on the Giants’ miscues. Dallas scored 16 of its 21 points off of turnovers including a turnover on downs. Dak Prescott was rather pedestrian in this game, finishing 28/37 for 217 yards and a touchdown. Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott combined for 126 yards and a score on 28 carries.

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES 

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles shook off a rough first quarter to comeback and beat the COVID ravaged Football Team 27-17 on Tuesday night. After turning the ball over twice in the first quarter, Hurts finished with 334 total yards and three total touchdowns. Hurts’ 296 passing yards are his best since a Week 4 loss to the Chiefs. 

The Washington offense, led by newly signed Garrett Gilbert at QB, took advantage of early turnovers to jump out to a 10-0 lead after one quarter. However, Philadelphia then rattled off 20 unanswered until early in the fourth. The Eagles amassed a total of 519 yards including 238 on the ground. Conversely, Philadelphia’s defense allowed Washington to gain just 63 yards on the ground in a game that RB Antonio Gibson suffered a toe injury but later returned.
