Justin Pugh Says Giants Would Have Beaten Cowboys in Potential Playoff Matchup

Antonio JonesJan 11, 2017

Meanwhile, the Giants got booted after Pugh's first playoff game and it now boils down to the team they hate against the team that ended their season in the divisional round.

The right to move into the apartment next door to the Super Bowl will be on the line and the two teams have a ton of history between them, the most recent having a tinge of vengeance.

Based on how Zeke and Dak have performed all year, playing at a high level against some of the NFL's best teams, it's not insane to assume they'll treat this game like every other game.

For the New York Giants, their season is officially over.

Dallas is 4-3 against Green Bay.


Prescott, rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys trounced the Packers 30-16 in Week 6. It ended with a crushing and somewhat embarrassing loss to the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round of the National Football League playoffs. The Giants are done for the year and those dreaded Cowboys play on.

As the WR play improved, Rodgers was able to pick apart the Giants zone looks, and his "dagger" plays came when he was able to hold onto the ball and still navigate the pocket to make a late throw.

"They're lucky that we didn't go beat the Green Bay Packers", Pugh said, per the New York Daily News' Ebenezer Samuel.

This highly paid Giants defensive line made plays at times, but against a sub par offensive line they really didn't dominate like they were going to need to in order to beat Rodgers. As they began to clog gaps against the run, the Packers crowded the line of scrimmage more to force Eli Manning into beating their coverage.
