NFL: Cowboys win important division duel 28-20 against Giants

Dalton Schultz had two touchdown passes in the third quarter, Micah Parsons had two more sacks, and the Dallas Cowboys defeated the New York Giants 28-20 on Thursday.

Trailing 13-7 at halftime, the Cowboys (8-3) stormed out for the second half, scoring the next 21 points courtesy of majors scored by Schultz and fellow tight end Peyton Hendershot.

For his part, Parsons collected two sacks in the same game for the 6th time this season. The 23-year-old linebacker has 16 sacks in 14 games played at Cowboys Stadium this season.

CeeDee Lamb had six catches for 106 yards in the air, while Ezekiel Elliott had 91 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Fellow Cowboys running back Tony Pollard added 60 yards on 18 carries.

After losing the first two starts of his NFL career to the Giants, quarterback Dak Prescott has since won his next ten.

New York (7-4) suffers a second straight loss for the first time this season, four days after being beaten on its own lawn by Detroit.

Daniel Jones has struggled to make the offense work, as evidenced by his 21 completions for 228 yards. He took three sacks for losses of 18 yards.

His lone touchdown pass came with eight seconds left in the matchup, as the G-Men had no chance of a comeback.

With this 8th victory in eleven games – its 5th in six home games – Dallas remains at a reasonable distance from the leaders of the Eastern Division of the National, the Philadelphia Eagles (9-1), who will play Sunday night against Green Bay.

On December 24, during the 16th week of activities, Philly will be at AT&T Stadium in Arlington to face the Cowboys.
