Well, fuck me for doubting the Overs Club first off. I honestly didn't expect Tom Brady to throw for 4 TD's, let alone Dak throwing 3. I'll be the first to admit my mistakes and this one was a tough beat. I don't know if it was the Super Bowl bias or Giants fandom that made me sleep on Dallas, but yup sure did.
The Cowboy's offense showed up.
Dak Prescott: 403 yards, 3TD, 1INT, 19 yards rushing | 27.42 fantasy points
Amari Cooper: 13 rec., 139 yards, 2TD | 38.9 fantasy points
CeeDee Lamb: 7 rec., 104 yards, 1TD | 23.4 fantasy points
The one thing that is for certain though, is the Cowboys line was so-so. Lots of penalties, but they only let up one sack, so not bad. However, they couldn't help generate a running game. Ezekial Elliot and Tony Pollard combined 47 rushing yards and 35 receiving yards, but Pollard was establishing himself as RBI (yikes). Honestly, the Cowboys would've won the game if it wasn't for Zuerlein's yips.
But going back to Dak, he showed no signs of an ankle injury. He was firing passes, 58 attempts to be exact, and was cool and calm under the pressure. As a Giants fan, I am lucky they have a top-tier defense and a lockdown pass defense (i.e. The NYPD), however, Daniel Jones and Co. are going to need to drop at least 30ppg in order to win. That's a conversation for week five.
I closed out the night 3-4. Wasn't too thrilled, but Sunday is just around the corner. What a way to start the season. Let's ride.
