Defense did its job bending but not breaking. Took a few quarters to finally start getting to Prescott but made it there eventually.

Nice to see Cruz back and doing the salsa!

Run game was much improved, nice to see Jennings and Vereen used much more than last year. Oline got the job done against a sub par defensive front.

Good day for the Giants rookies with Shepard, Apple and Thompson all having a good day. Berhe also played well at safety.

Clock management improved 10 fold and the big reason the Giants won today. Good stuff

Just feels good to win in Dallas. Alsoglad the rooks and Cruz had solid outings,here's to a great year.

Linebacker core was not great, Casillas apart, but a good win for the team's confidence.

Not sure what Manning "saw" on his interception, but play calling was good. I still thought we were going to give it up at the end despite a rookie quarterback.

Question, do the Giants ever use screens?

That INT was on Shepard. Coaching staff confirmed after the game, he was supposed to break in and work back to the ball but instead went out and sat.

They ran a few screen passes to Vereen yesterday with some success but they still aren't a good screening team

Felt good to start the season with a win in Dallas...liking our WR talent, was amazing to see Cruzzzz back. The game wasn't perfect, it was fun to watch but we can still improve. Jennings made a couple of big plays.
