The Cowboys welcomed the Giants to AT&T Stadium for the season opener of Sunday Night Football, and things did not go the Giants’ way. The Cowboys trounced them, wearing down the Giants defense en route to a 19-3 win.
Dallas held the Giants scoreless through the better part of three quarters, when New York finally managed to get into position to kick a field goal. But the defense had no answer for the Dallas offense, which was at full strength with Ezekiel Elliott on the field.
Lynch ran with the same bruising style that we grew to love over the course of his career — particularly when he was in Seattle. His first run since returning showed his finesse, patience, and power.
There’s also no other player in the NFL that can make a 1-yard run look this impressive. Lynch was nearly tackled three yards behind the line of scrimmage, before he made a defender miss, and dragged another with him for a first down on 4th and 1.
Donald, 26, is in the fourth year of his rookie contract and is due to make $1.8 million in base salary this year. The Rams also picked up his fifth-year option next season, paying him roughly $6.9 million, but Donald is hoping to negotiate a new contract that will put him among the highest-paid defensive tackles in the NFL.
The Rams are scheduled to host the Redskins at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday.
Fellow Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger told ESPN the news of Cravens’ possible retirement was “shocking.”
“He has to handle what he needs to handle, whether mental or with his family. We’re here to support him,” Swearinger said. “That’s tough. I’m not in those shoes, so I can’t speak on him, so whatever he’s dealing with I’m praying for him and hopefully he’ll be back.
