Continue reading the main story Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott showed that his sparkling rookie season had not been an aberration with an efficient performance that featured precise passing worthy of a longtime veteran.
On one play, he stepped around attempted tackles by Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon, the Giants’ feared defensive ends, for a 17-yard scramble and a critical first down.
But the Giants’ porous offensive line faltered again, with left tackle Ereck Flowers allowing the Cowboys’ Charles Tapper to slice through almost untouched for a 9-yard sack.
Dallas thwarted each of the Giants’ drives thereafter, most notably when defensive back Anthony Brown intercepted a deep Manning pass with 5 minutes 48 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.
