Cowboys beat Giants, move closer to playoff berth

Dak Prescott threw for 217 yards and a touchdown and the visiting Dallas Cowboys forced four turnovers en route to a 21-6 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J.

Prescott completed 28 of 37 passes for the Cowboys (10-4), who beat the Giants (4-10) earlier this season, 44-20.

Dallas can clinch a postseason berth if the New Orleans Saints lose to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the San Francisco 49ers fall to the Atlanta Falcons later on Sunday.

Tight end Dalton Schultz had eight catches for 67 yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys. Tony Pollard rushed for 74 yards and Ezekiel Elliott had 52 yards and a score.

Trevon Diggs recorded his NFL-best 10th interception, and Jourdan Lewis and Malik Hooker also picked off passes from Mike Glennon (13 of 24, 99 yards) to boost Dallas’ league-leading total to 23 interceptions.

Jake Fromm completed 6 of 12 passes for 82 yards in relief during his NFL debut for New York, which has its second three-game skid of the season.

DeMarcus Lawrence had a hand in two turnovers, with his first coming as he hit Glennon to force the ball to go skyward and into the hands of Lewis for an interception.

Elliott converted two plays later after scoring from 13 yards out on a draw for his ninth touchdown of the season.

Greg Zuerlein pushed the ensuing extra-point attempt wide left; however, he answered Graham Gano’s 35-yard field goal later in the first quarter with three successful kicks in the second. He made field-goal attempts from 26, 42 and 27 yards to give Dallas a 15-3 lead at halftime.

Lawrence set up Zuerlein’s last field goal after punching the ball out from Saquon Barkley, resulting in the latter’s first lost fumble of his NFL career. Carlos Watkins recovered the ball for the Cowboys.

Gano made a 42-yard field goal to trim Dallas’ lead to 15-6 early in the third, but Prescott found Schultz in the back of the end zone later in the quarter.

Diggs intercepted Glennon in the end zone midway through the fourth quarter.
