NY Giants 0-5

The Giants’ latest loss was a heartbreaker. Greg Zuerlein’s 34-yard field goal as time expired gave the Dallas Cowboys a 37-34 victory against the Giants – who owned a 17-3 lead in the second quarter.

It was Zuerlein’s third field goal of the game and second in the last 1:56. After he tied the game with a 40-yarder, the Giants were forced to punt. Backup quarterback Andy Dalton then led the Cowboys on a five-play, 72-yard drive that included two completions that were confirmed by replay review.

Despite more than doubling their previous high point total of the season, the Giants fell to 0-5 for the first time since 2017. Dallas improved to 2-3 and took over first place in the NFC East.

Dak Prescott became the first opposing quarterback in the Super Bowl era with a touchdown reception against the Giants when he caught an 11-yard pass from wide receiver Cedrick Wilson in the second quarter. The touchdown regained the lead for Dallas with just 16 seconds remaining in the second quarter.

Prescott suffered a season ending injury on retinue play scrambling for a first down in the third quarter. Prescott made his 69th consecutive start, left the game with an apparent serious right ankle leg injury suffered when he was tackled by Logan Ryan at the end of a nine-yard run with 6:33 remaining in the third quarter. Prescott was transported to a local hospital. He suffered a compound right ankle fracture and is undergoing surgery tonight. He was replaced by former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback
