Just about everything points to a Dallas Cowboys victory over the New York Giants in the season opener on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium.

Earlier this week, I broke down some areas where the Dallas Cowboys could – not would – but could
have some problems in winning their season-opening regular-season contest against their NFC East rival New York Giants.

While it’s true that all of those issues will play a role, to some degree, on the outcome of this game, there’s much more in terms of advantages for the Cowboys to start the season.

If preseason football showed us a little bit more – okay, a lot more – than it actually does, then perhaps Sunday’s game would be a lot easier to predict.

Since that’s not the case, we’re looking primarily at what happened last year in combination with what little we saw of the Cowboys starters during the preseason.

Everybody is pretty much clueless regarding what their favorite NFL team is at this stage. Each year brings surprise performances and also disappointing results that have some owners circling Black Monday on their calendars by Halloween.

The Cowboys should fit neither of those categories.

This is a team that’s expected to have a very strong season, especially given the difference in their circumstances when compared to the rest of the NFC East, including those G-Men who are coming to North Texas.

If the Cowboys are to win on Sunday night, here are the top-5 reasons why this is likely to be the case.
