Dak, Cowboys Continue Winning Streak Over Giants, Pelicans’ Ingram Scores 40 In Loss To Nets, Martinez Elects To Stay In Boston

Grace Higgins | November 5th, 2019

It’s got to be getting old now for the New York ‘football’ Giants. After their 37-18 loss on Monday Night Football, it’s now been six in a row that they have dropped to the Dallas Cowboys. It had started oh so well for them as well, intercepting Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott on his first pass of the game and then scoring a field goal to go up 3-0. Dallas answered back with one of their own to close out the first quarter, but the Giants then put up nine points consecutively in the second. Dallas, of course, would respond by putting up ten of their own within the last minute of the half, allowing them to take a 13-12 lead. The two teams traded field goals again in the third, but the fourth quarter is where the Cowboys took control. They would go on to score three touchdowns, outscoring the Giants 21-3 in the closing 15 minutes to grab the big win. Prescott finished the day with three touchdown tosses and 257 yards on 22-35 passing. Ezekiel Elliott also had a big night, rushing for 139 yards, while Amari Cooper had four catches for a TD and 80 yards. It’s been said that if all three of them play well, the Cowboys will be unbeatable. This pretty much proved just that. Dallas are now 5-3 on the season, while the Giants are languishing at 2-7.

It’s not everyday that someone scores 40 points in the NBA. And it’s definitely not happening all that often to someone that’s not an automatic All-Star selection. Yet that’s exactly what took place on Monday night for Brandon Ingram of the New Orleans Pelicans. After shaking off a head injury, he came out and shot 17 of 24 from the field, with just three of those points coming from behind the three-point line. In the end, however, his performance was not enough to lead them past the Brooklyn Nets, who ended up winning it 135-125 in the end. Kyrie Irving had a point less than Ingram, 39, and also had nine assists as they held on despite a late run by the Pelicans to try and get it close. The Nets are now 3-4, while the Pelicans are just 1-6, with no wins as of yet on the road.

There is a lot of talk about big changes coming to the Boston Red Sox for next season. One of them, at least by the looks of things right this second, will not be with JD Martinez. The outfielder/designated hitter has decided to opt in with the team, meaning he will not look to go elsewhere via free agency. This means that he can make over $60 million in the next three seasons, a great deal for a 32-year old that may have injury concerns eventually. He also will have the option to opt out after the next two seasons, so we will see how that turns out. There are rumors that the Sox are shopping Mookie Betts, among others, so it could be quite the enticing off season in New England.
