MetLife Stadium will play host to a Monday night NFL clash between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants. The Cowboys (1-1) are playing without injured QB Dak Prescott and are leaning on a stingy defense that ranks sixth in yards allowed (300.5 ypg). On Sunday, Dallas built a 14-point halftime lead and sacked Cincinnati QB Joe Burrow six times during a 20-17 home victory.
Cooper Rush started in place of Prescott, throwing for 235 yards and a nine-yard touchdown strike to Noah Brown. Brett Maher’s second field goal of 50 plus yards won it for the Cowboys (1-1) as time expired.
