Here's what Bleacher Report had to say:
Last Week's Ranking: 7
Wow, did the Cowboys look good. A sophomore slump for Dak Prescott? Negative, Ghost Rider. He looked great against a terrific Giants defense, and he appears to be taking the steps I want to see from a young franchise quarterback.
Not only did Prescott throw the ball phenomenally, but he also had the vision needed to spread the ball around evenly to his key weapons. In addition, he managed to make some plays with his legs.
Speaking of weapons, the Cowboys better hope they can keep Ezekiel Elliott for the long haul because he changes what opposing teams have to do. The Giants gave up some big plays, possibly because they were too worried about stopping the run.
Some of those big plays came from Terrance Williams. He looked terrific. If he can be a legit No. 2 to Dez Bryant, Dallas is going to be tough to stop. Jason Witten continues to amaze at 35.
The Dallas defense was awesome too. Jaylon Smith looked as advertised, playing all over the field. The new pieces in the secondary fit and played well. DeMarcus Lawrence appears back to 100 percent, and Dallas needs him to be a big-time pass-rusher this season.
Dallas held Manning and the Giants to just three points. Even with no Beckham, that's impressive.
