Offense has too many skills, money invested to look like this

With 10 wins to their name, the Cowboys can officially look to the playoffs.

Dallas defeated the New York Giants 21-6 Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Dan Quinn’s defense dominated once again. The Cowboys held a selection with three interceptions, giving them an NFL-high 23 this season. Trevon Diggs got his 10th league-leading interception in the fourth quarter, tied with Mel Renfro for the second most single-season interceptions in franchise history. Everson Walls holds the franchise record with 11 caps in 1981.

The offense, meanwhile, left a lot to be desired. Dak Prescott completed 28 of 37 passes for 217 yards and has been sacked three times. Tony Pollard’s return was hoping to give Dallas a boost to running play, but Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott only combined for 126 rushing yards.

While the Cowboys are free to discuss the playoffs now, their place has not been secured. Dallas can clinch a spot if the San Francisco 49ers or New Orleans Saints lose on Sunday.

Here’s some of the national reaction to the Cowboys’ victory:
