Cowboy Cuts: Opening with a bang!

The Cowboys got off to a great start as they defeated the New York Giants on Sept. 10. Here is my review over how the game went.

This is the year the Dallas Cowboys will win another Super Bowl. 

Well, that’s what I’m hoping for, at least. After their dominant season opener against the New York Giants on Sept. 10 where they blew them out 40-0 in New York, it seems like they are heading in the right direction.

It was a dominant show early in the first quarter for the Cowboys as their special teams blocked a field goal and returned it for a touchdown seven minutes into the game. After taking a 6-0 lead, the Cowboys never looked back. They continued their early success by forcing a three-and-out and scoring a field goal on their first offensive drive of the game, which was emphatically followed up by a pick-six from cornerback DaRon Bland. The hype around the Cowboy’s defense was the real deal as they shut out the Giants in the first half. 

As for offense, they looked quite consistent. Quarterback Dak Prescott had no interceptions and had over 50% percent completion rating. Though the offense didn’t pass the ball much, receiver CeeDee Lamb looked impressive as he snagged four catches for 77 yards. 

The main story on the offensive side of the ball is the run game. After cutting Ezekiel Elliot over the offseason, Tony Pollard stepped into the RB1 slot and looked good, as he had 14 carries for 70 yards and two touchdowns. The offense also introduced secret weapons like KaVontae Turpin and fan favorite Deuce Vaughn into the run game as speed threats. Turpin also contributed a rushing touchdown, the first of his career. 

As a Cowboys fan, it has never been easy to root for a team that disappoints year after year. Although, this year, the odds look to be in our favor, as the Cowboy’s defense, led by Micah Parsons and Trevon Diggs, is lethal. The defense accounted for two touchdowns and a league-leading seven sacks and three turnovers. 

The defense highlighted in week one has made the Cowboy’s offense more promising. I am not 100%confident in Prescott’s abilities as a passer just yet. But the offense, spearheaded by Pollard, poses a real threat to opposing defenses and explosive wide receiver threat CeeDee Lamb, who looks like a potential pro bowler. 

This might not be the year the Cowboys win the Super Bowl, but things look rather promising after an assertive week one showing against the Giants. As a Dallas Cowboys fan, one can only hope that, this year, the Super Bowl will be ours.
