NJ's EAST RUTHERFORD — Cooper Rush, the Cowboys' backup quarterback, has been a lifesaver, but his performance doesn't bode well for Dallas' chances of being a serious NFC contender.

Right guard Zack Martin told USA TODAY Sports, "We were moving the ball all night so I think there was a lot of confidence that: Hey we just got to finish when we go down there." "We were able to have that long, 90-yard drive there in the fourth, and the defence finished it off.

Instead, the team's ability to remedy its first-half errors—ineffectiveness in the red zone, penalties, drops—and transform those into reasons they won—was on display in Monday night's 23-16 victory over the New York Giants. That hadn't always been the case during Mike McCarthy's two and a half years as the team's head coach.

"To get these games is huge."
Rush and the Cowboys (2-1) have won two straight games, the first one against the Bengals, who are the reigning AFC champions. They have moved into second place in the division, trailing the unbeaten Eagles (3-0). The Cowboys' new goal is to kick off matches precisely.

Dallas settled for short field goals in the first half of the game on Monday night after failing to score on both of its visits into the end zone.

The Cowboys had advanced past the Giants' 10-yard line in each instance. Kellen Moore, the offensive coordinator, called unimaginative plays and it appeared that there were communication problems as well. For instance, in the first quarter, Rush appeared to modify the play at the line of scrimmage while running back Ezekiel Elliott stood behind him and repeatedly tapped his shoulder, seemingly hesitant about the call (it was a rush to Elliott).

But in the second half, that was different. With some no-huddle offence, the Cowboys picked up the pace and were aggressive at the line of scrimmage. On two separate drives that marked the close of the third quarter and the beginning of the fourth, Dallas scored two 1-yard touchdowns.

Receiver Noah Brown told USA TODAY Sports that "it may be a good indicator for folks on the outside who don't think we're capable of these things." "For us, it's just confirmation. We already knew we could accomplish this, so simply showing there and doing it gives us more confidence. I'm already anticipating the coming week.
