    ARLINGTON, Texas — It's just the preseason, but for three straight games the Dallas Cowboys' starting defense has looked as good as coordinator Rob Ryan's trademark boasts.

    The first-team defense did not allow a touchdown in Saturday's 20-19 win over the St. Louis Rams. They did give up points – two field goals – for the first time in the preseason, but held the Rams to a mere 114 yards in the first half.

    Again, it's just the preseason. And it was against the Rams. But it's become clear that a Cowboys defense that was picked apart at times last season has benefited from having a full offseason under Ryan.

    "Oh it's a lot better, especially versus last year when we had the lockout," defensive tackle Jason Hatcher said. "We didn't have a whole lot of time to get in there and learn the scheme. But I feel like we're a step ahead of where we were last year."

    The Giants will be a true test for this defense. This defense can make a statement in this game. I like to see this defense stop the opponent no matter what our offense does.
