WHAT IT MEANS
The Cowboys started off the season with a bang. Dallas tore up the New York Giants 35-17. For all the talk about 2019 being a special season, Week 1 was everything the fans and Hall of Fame owner wanted.
After the Cowboys first drive stalled after six plays, Dak Prescott threw touchdown passes on the next three drives and the Cowboys went into halftime up 21-7.
PLAYER OF THE GAME
Prescott has never looked better. This new Kellen Moore offense is built around him. Prescott was magical in the first half carving up the Giants on 20-of-26 for 256 yards and three scores.
His final stat line was 25-for-32, with 405 yards and four touchdowns.
Prescott is entering the final year of his contract and made a statement about why he has yet to take the Cowboys contract offer. The price tag went up on Sunday as he hit Blake Jarwin, Jason Witten, Amari Cooper and Randal Cobb for touchdowns.
75, 93, 83, 75, 89. That was how many yards each Cowboys touchdown drive covered through three quarters against the Giants in the competitive phase of the ball game. Not a bad debut for rookie playcaller Kellen Moore.
Prescott set a Cowboys record with 405 passing yards in the season opener. The most ever for a Dallas quarterback in the first game of a season.
The Cowboys travel to Washington. In their first game of the year in Philadelphia, Washington led 17-0 before losing 32-27. Case Keenum started for the Burgundy and Gold. He was good, going 30-for-46 with 380 yards and three touchdowns. No picks.
