The New York Giants lost to the Dallas Cowboys, 21-6, on Sunday. The Giants have now lost 10 or more games in five consecutive seasons.
Dallas, 10-4 and en route to an NFC East title, converted a series of Giants miscues — a Mike Glennon interception, a Saquon Barkley fumble, a turnover on downs at the Giants’ 29-yard line — into 15 points.
“Thought the effort of the team was what we needed, but obviously the execution was not. Too many self-inflicted wounds today,” said head coach Joe Judge. “Thought we had a chance for success. We had our shots, but we’ve got to make the most of them. You’re not going to win a lot of games in this league with four turnovers.”
Jake Fromm made his NFL debut for the Giants, replacing an ineffective Glennon with 3:41 to play. Fromm completed 6 of 12 for 82 yards, but could not get the Giants into the end zone on his only drive.
“We got to a point in the game where I wanted to see what Jake could do, point blank,” Judge said. “We weren’t doing enough moving the ball otherwise, so I wanted to make sure I had the chance to see Jake.”
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, whose completion percentage had fallen 10 points since an Oct. 17 calf injury, returned to clean and efficient play on a 28-of-37 day in which he threw for 217 yards and a touchdown.
