Cowboys splash plays vs. Giants

To play Eli Manning and that Giants offense on the road and to only blitz 6 players on one occasion is certainly ideal. Also, to get 3 sacks is something you will take every time, even though you wish you could get there with 4 once in a while. It should be said that the one time they rushed 6 (with 3:49 left in the game), they were caught in a dangerous spot, but Sean Lee was able to snuff out a WR screen by himself and keep the clock running. Nothing defeats a blitz quite like a screen away from it. We saw that again and again last year.
Much like the offensive reports, this Week 1 report is certainly positive from the defense. Now, their job is to keep it up.
