Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is facing some criticism for what's transpired late in this afternoon's game against the New York Giants.

The Cowboys are playing the Giants at Metlife Stadium this afternoon, having already clinched the NFC East division.

Dallas has rested a couple of its key players, including star running back Ezekiel Elliott and offensive linemen Tyron Smith and Zack Martin.

Quarterback Dak Prescott has remained in the game, though, as well as some key defenders like star rookie linebacker Leighton Vander Esch.

Unfortunately for the Cowboys, the potential Defensive Rookie of the Year just went down with an apparent injury. If Dallas were to lose the stud linebacker due to an injury suffered late in a meaningless game, that would be quite catastrophic.

"Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch is down with an injury. He hurt himself on previous play trying to chase down Giants TE Evan Engram down the right sideline. But stayed in, and went down on next play," Brandon George tweeted.

Cowboys fans aren't happy with Garrett right now. "Jason Garrett is awful. Why is Leighton Vander Esch playing in the 4th Q?? 0 to gain," one fan tweeted.

"More awful game management decisions by Jason Garrett. Jerry Jones should force him to play quarterback in the 4th quarter," another added.

The Cowboys are trailing the Giants, 25-21, early in the fourth quarter. Even though Dallas is trailing, it's probably time to get all of the key starters off the field.
