We're a couple of minutes into tonight's Cowboys-Giants game on NBC and it already has the feel of another primetime NFC East classic.

Dallas opened the game in thrilling fashion. The Cowboys only took a couple of plays to find the end zone, as Dak Prescott hit Tavon Austin for a 60-plus yard touchdown to open the scoring.

It was a much-needed play for a Cowboys offense that struggled mightily to stretch the field vertically in a Week 1 loss against Carolina.

The Giants, meanwhile, look less promising. New York moved the ball to roughly midfield on its first drive of the game, but ended up punting on a 4th and inches.

This decision has upset Giants fans - and football fans in general.

Bill Barnwell summed it up best:

"If you think a running back is a transcendent enough talent to take with the second overall pick, you can’t punt on fourth-and-inches at midfield."

Well said. You have Saquon Barkley. You took him No. 2 overall. Let him get you that 4th and inches.
