The Cowboys are playing without left tackle Tyron Smith, right guard Zack Martin and running back Ezekiel Elliott. But they still have Dak Prescott.
Prescott, who played 15 snaps in a meaningless game in 2016, remains in the game in the second quarter.
He has staked the Cowboys to a 7-0 lead, throwing a 13-yard touchdown pass to Blake Jarwin. It’s only the second touchdown pass a Cowboys tight end has caught this season.
The Cowboys had another chance to score. They got as close as the New York 15 before having to settle for a 34-yard field goal try by Brett Maher. His kick was wide right.
Maher is 6-of-8 from 30-39 this season, 7-of-11 from 40-49 and 6-of-7 from 50-plus.
The Giants’ only scoring opportunity ended with an interception.
The Giants reached the Dallas 6, where on third-and-4, Eli Manning‘s pass intended for Sterling Shepard was picked by Chidobe Awuzie in the end zone.
