Cowboys vs. Giants score: Dallas surges in second half behind CeeDee Lamb, Ezekiel Elliott on Thanksgiving

With or without Odell Beckham Jr., the Cowboys’ offense is a force to be reckoned with. A week after scoring 40 points in Minnesota, Dallas scored touchdowns on three consecutive drives in the second half against the Giants on Thanksgiving. The Cowboys’ scoring spree led to a 28-20 win that moved them to 8-3. The Giants fell to 7-4 after losing their second straight game.

Trailing 13-7 at halftime, the Cowboys took the lead for good on Dak Prescott’s 15-yard touchdown pass to Dalton Schultz midway through the third quarter. The score capped off a 14-play, 75 yard drive that saw the Cowboys enforce their will in both the run and the pass.

Prescott and Schultz teamed up in the end zone again moments later after the Cowboys’ defense stopped the Giants on fourth-and-1 at New York’s own 40-yard-line. Daniel Jones, facing pressure from Donovan Wilson, threw an off-target pass to Saquon Barkley that Barkley was unable to corral from behind.

The Cowboys provided the coup de grâce on their next drive when Peyton Hendershot scored on a jet sweep from two yards out. CeeDee Lamb made three impressive catches on the drive, including a one-handed grab two plays before Hendershot’s score.

The Giants briefly gave their fans a slight glimmer of hope when Richie James caught a short touchdown pass with eight seconds left. But the Cowboys quickly extinguished that hope when Lamb recovered the onside kick.

The Giants led at halftime on the strength of two interceptions off Prescott. The second pick, courtesy of safety Julian Love, set up Graham Gano’s 47-yard field goal on the final play of the half. Barkley gave the Giants the lead on a one-yard touchdown run less than six minutes into the second quarter.

We’ll have a full breakdown shortly, but in the meantime, check out our live blog below to relive the action in real time.
