The New York Giants saw their losing streak reach a season-high fifth straight game on Monday night, as they got crushed 37-18 at home against the Dallas Cowboys to fall to just 2-7 on the season overall. The Giants actually trailed by only a single point heading into the fourth quarter before surrendering three touchdowns en route to a double-digit defeat. QB Daniel Jones wasn’t at his best, going 26-for-41 for 210 passing yards and a touchdown through the air but also got picked off once as well.
RB Saquon Barkley couldn’t get anything going on the ground at all against a tough Cowboys run defense, rushing for just 28 yards on 14 carries. Barkley did record six receptions for 67 yards but it was Cody Latimeer who scored the only touchdown of the game for the offense despite making only two catches for eight yards. On the other side of the ball, the defense gave up well over 400 total yards of offense and three touchdowns. The Giants had no answer for Dallas RB Ezekiel Elliott, as he torched the defense for 139 rushing yards on 23 carries.
