Cowboys vs. Giants live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Monday Night Football’ game

Sports

It seems like it’s never a dull affair when the Cowboys and the Giants face off.

The NFC East foes renew their rivalry this week on “Monday Night Football,” with both teams battling for position early in the season. 

The Cowboys come into the game on the heels of an important win over the Bengals. With Dak Prescott injured and Dallas staring a dreaded 0-2 start in the face, fill-in quarterback Cooper Rush led a clutch drive in the final minutes to set up a game-winning field goal by Brett Maher.

The victory put the Cowboys back on track after a brutal season-opening loss to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers in Week 1 in which they failed to find the end zone — and Prescott was hurt in the waning minutes. They’ll be hoping to turn their newfound momentum into a win at the Meadowlands.

Meanwhile, the Giants are sitting pretty after their first 2-0 start since 2016.

A thrilling comeback win over the Titans in Week 1 got the campaign off to a great start. Daniel Jones found Chris Myarick in the end zone with barely a minute left on the clock, and Saquon Barkley converted a 2-point try to give New York the lead — and ultimately the win.

Last week, a 56-yard Graham Gano field goal and clutch fourth-quarter defense led to a win over the Panthers.

Their hot start has surprised many experts. They’ll be looking to prove this week that it’s not a fluke.
