Prescott threw for 405 yards and 4 touchdowns in the Cowboys season opener. Michael Gallup was the Cowboys’ leading receiver vs. the Giants with 158 yards while Amari Cooper added 106 receiving yards and a touchdown grab. Randall Cobb & Jason Witten also had touchdown catches in the Cowboys’ win in their 2019 NFL regular season debut.
On defense, the Cowboys started off rough by giving up an early touchdown to the Giants. From then on, the Cowboys held the Giants’ offense in check until New York had a garbage time touchdown late in the fourth quarter. However, the Cowboys did allow Eli Manning to throw for more than 300 passing yards & Saquon Barkley had 120 rushing yards, but it wasn’t enough to keep up with the Cowboys prolific offense coordinated by Kellen Moore.
Overall, the Cowboys offense could not have looked better in Kellen Moore’s first game as offensive coordinator. He had the perfect combination of a passing and rushing attack while implementing a lot of play action & a handful of RPO’s. Nonetheless, the Cowboys offense did its part & was the reason behind the Cowboys’ blowout win vs. the New York Giants. The defense has to shore up some weaknesses, but they did force two turnovers during the game, which is a good sign because that has been a problem for the Cowboys in recent years.

Kellen Moore: A+++++
