Cowboys vs Giants: 3 Things to Watch
I just published my “What to Watch” article for the Cowboys-Giants game at NBC.
Will the Cowboys get pressure on Eli Manning?
Ryan was able to play a lot of safe defenses in Week 1 because the Cowboys were able to get solid pressure on Manning without blitzing often. Manning struggles when he’s pressured like every other quarterback, but he thrives against the blitz because he often releases the ball before the extra rushers reach him. Excessive blitzes won’t help Dallas, so look for stunts and twists from the linemen and outside linebackers in an effort to generate pressure without blitzing.
