Dallas Cowboys fans could not have asked for a better Week 1 showing than what we got on Sunday Night. It was a win, it was a stellar performance in all three areas of the game, every Cowboy stayed injury-free, and it was a thrashing of historic proportions.

That might end up being the biggest blowout in the NFL this season, so let's look at it in historic context.

Cowboys Score Last Night: 40-0 Blowout Win Made History

The Cowboys blew out the New York Giants 40-0 in Week 1. That's not the biggest blowout we've ever seen, but it makes the historical rankings in a couple of areas:

  • Biggest Cowboys Week 1 blowout: This was the second-biggest blowout the Cowboys have recorded in a season-opening game in franchise history. The +40 point differential trails only the 46-point win Dallas recorded over the Detroit Lions in 1968.
  • Biggest Cowboys blowout over the Giants: This was also the second-biggest blowout the Cowboys have ever recorded against the Giants. The biggest was a 45-point win (52-7) in 1966. Since then, the only time Dallas had blown out New York by even 35 points was in 1995. Well, now there's a new second-place rank, as well as a record for the biggest shutout the Cowboys have ever posted against the Giants.
  • First 40-plus point shutout since 2021: It's almost been two full years since any NFL team pulled off a shutout win with at least 40 points scored. It last happened on October 3, 2021 and nobody did it in the 2022 season.

And then here's this:

This wasn't just a regular blowout. It wasn't that one unit on the team happened to be playing at a ridiculous level. It was an absurdly well-rounded performance.

The offense was elite. The defense was elite. The special teams were elite.

This has all the makings of a team that's going to make a serious Super Bowl push in 2023.
