D Looks Good/BJ Goodson Leads the League in Tackles

with 18.

And Collins and Snacks are both studs.

I love to see what this defense can do against a less polished offense in the Lions. We held DAL to 19 and they were gifted their one TD. We held DET to 6 points last year and JPP wasn't even playing.

Who else is hoping to see Goodson put on another good show and Collins to flash in the way of TOs in week 2?

Not to mention, Apple (who was the weak link in the secondary) will be another week removed from his two sprained ankles and hopefully will be able to do a bit more on the outside.

But how many plays did the cowboys run? I would think being on the field for that many snaps would give Goodson a slight advantage in that category. Overall, I was happy with what I saw from him but stats can be misleading.

Also, Apple came up a little lame toward the end of the game. That will be worth following.

Not misleading whatsoever. The next closest Giant in tackles was (Apple) with five. The LB's on the outside (Casillas) only had three.

Goodson wasn't making your run-of-the-mill tackles either. He was running sideline to sideline. The likes of which, we haven't seen in a VERY long time. He even chased Elliot down from behind to make a tackle.

He was an absolute force and this was his first game as a starter. I can't wait to see how he develops the rest of the year. We finally have our MLB.
