The Dallas Cowboys heard all the New York Giants trash talk leading up to their game and remained quiet. They went to MetLife Stadium and got the win too. Cwoboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick stripped Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz of the football, and that was returned for a touchdown.
“He always holds on every play,” Cruz said of Scandrick, via Jordan Ranaan of NJ.com. “It’s always borderline whether it was pass interference or holding or whatever. I just don’t think about that and understand that he is going to do that and play through.”
“You just have to understand what you’re coming into and what type of player he is,” Cruz said. “You watch him on the field, he grabs and holds on everyone. You just have to be able to battle through it and get yourself open.”
Cruz had just two receptions for 27 yards in the game. Scandrick said after the game that he even “begged” Cowboys cornerback coach Jerome Henderson to leave him on Cruz when Claiborne left the game in the third quarter with a hamstring injury. He was also one of the more vocal Cowboys after the game.
“I’ve never heard a team that was 4-6 talk like that. We’re 5-5, 6-5 now, and we have no room to talk,” Scandrick said, via the Dallas Morning News.
