CeeDee Lamb and the Dallas Cowboys‘ elite pass-rushing unit led the team to a crucial intra-division win over the New York Giants on Thanksgiving by a 28-20 score.

Offensive spotlight: Cowboys wideout CeeDee Lamb put on his best show for an on-looking Odell Beckham Jr., racking up 106 yards on six catches. He brought in three of his six contested targets on the day, including an impressive one-handed grab.

Defensive spotlight: Demarcus Lawrence and Micah Parsons combined for 11 pressures on first review. Parsons came away with two sacks and the better pass-rush win rate, but Lawrence was responsible for seven of those pressures.

Rookie spotlight: Speaking of edge-rushing prowess, Kayvon Thibodeaux recorded a game-high and career-high (if it holds after review) eight pressures on the day. His 23.8 pass-rush win rate led all players in the game.

Offensive line spotlight: The usually elite Andrew Thomas struggled to contain the Cowboys' elite pass-rushers, surrendering four pressures. He had allowed just three pressures in seven games prior to this Thanksgiving showdown.
