In his first week after taking over as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Jason Garrett — formerly the team’s offensive coordinator — led his 1-7 team to victory on the road over the first place New York Giants with the help of several big plays. The Cowboys came to play yesterday for their new coach, scoring on a 70-yard touchdown reception, and a 101-yard (yes, you’re reading that correctly) interception return for a touchdown. The Cowboys got a measure of revenge on their rivals Sunday, after New York essentially ended their season two weeks ago in Dallas. They still have a long way to go to get back to where they want to be in the standings, but for at least a few days, they can rejoice in a big win driven by a full team effort and an inspired new coach.
