Recap

Despite outscoring the Dallas Stars 21-6 in the second half, New York was never able to erase a 20-point third quarter deficit in a 26-21 loss to Dallas. Stars free safety A.J. Ahanotu intercepted New York’s Joseph Redfeather twice in the final four minutes.

Dallas got production at key moments from all of their offensive weapons in a complete team effort. Thomas Ranklins had 281 passing yards, Johnny English had 109 rushing yards, Scott King had 120 receiving yards and tight end Asante Doleman made a crucial catch in double coverage late in the fourth quarter to set the Stars up in field goal range late, giving Dallas a 26-21 lead. Dallas even got 51 yards out of their fullback.

New York trailed 20-0 at the half, a first half that produced only three first downs and 116 yards offensively. The Knights rallied in the fourth quarter getting receiver Jake Legacy going. Legacy finished with 157 yards on 8 receptions, including a 58-yard touchdown in the final two minutes.

A key to the game for Dallas was getting pressure on Joseph Redfeather, who didn’t see much of it in the preseason. Dallas had six sacks.

New York was led defensively by the Gatlin brothers who poured in defensive numbers. In particular, inside linebacker Jeb Gatlin pitched in 12 tackles, along with 9 assisted tackles in defeat.

The Knights will travel to San Francisco next week while Dallas will take a trip to rival Oklahoma City.
