When you look at a team that makes 13 penalties for 86 yards, usually, they lose the game.
Despite making a ton of bad penalties, they didn't make any that shot themselves in the foot. Although I'm sure Jason Garrett is going to have a hell of a time scolding his offensive line in practice.
But in the end, the Cowboys were the better team.
Tony Romo had a good night, throwing for 307 yards and three touchdowns and he outplayed Eli Manning in the battle of NFC East quarterbacks.
DeMarco Murray has a great night running the football, carrying the ball 20 times for 131 yards. The Giants had trouble bringing down the second-year back on a lot of plays, including the one that Murray broke for 48 yards after it looked like the Giants stopped him for a loss in the backfield.
I mentioned Kevin Ogletree, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin earlier, who all had solid games making plays and making the Giants secondary look downright terrible.
The Cowboys were the better team on Wednesday night and deserved to win against the Giants. And now, Tom Coughlin and his group have 11 days to correct a lot of mistakes made and fix the ship before they play the Buccaneers in Week 2.
It's a tough loss to swallow for Giants fans, especially losing to your division rivals on national television on opening night, and now have to think about this for a week-and-a half now.
So while you go to work or school and the Dallas fans will trash talk about the game, if you are a Giants fan, all you can do is tip your hat and say nice game, but we'll see you later on in the season.
One thing is for sure, the Giants absolutely need to rebound in Week 2 and avoid starting 0-2.
