Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has been in the NFC East far too long to be surprised by the Giants’ four-game win streak, which has them right back in the division race after starting 0-6.
“They’re a good football team,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “They’ve been a good football team for a long time, they’ve got a lot of good players. They’re doing what winning teams do, and I don’t think that’s anything of a surprise or a revelation at all. When you play winning football and you have talented players on your team and you’re well coached, typically you’re going to win more than you don’t.”
While the Giants have been streaking, the Cowboys have been struggling. They went into the bye week as losers of two of their last three, and suffered a demoralizing 49-17 loss in New Orleans in Week 10. Garrett doesn’t believe there will be any lingering effects come Sunday at MetLife Stadium, though.
“I think it’s really important to focus on what the task is every week,” Garrett said. “You play these games one game at a time. Certainly when you’re feeling good about yourself, that’s a positive thing. But the best teams, the best players are the ones that take each situation independently of the other one and do it to the best of their ability. That’s why you play one game at a time in this league. Anything you did last week really doesn’t have that much of an impact in what you’re doing this week. It’s a clean slate.”
