The Week 15 bout between the Cowboys and the Giants will be remembered for its defense. The Cowboys’ defense had the Giants well scouted from the first quarter. After a turnover, the running back Ezekiel Elliott scored a touchdown for the Cowboys around 6:31 minutes.

After that, the Dallas defense quickly shut down any play that the Giants tried to put together. New York was forced to take 3 points from a field goal with only 30 seconds left. The first quarter ended with a score of 6-3. 

It was the same story for the rest of the game. The best play of the night came later in the fourth quarter. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was sacked, and he lost control of the ball. Austin Johnson retrieved the ball and put the Giants on offense again. The score was 21-6, Dallas was in a comfortable lead.
