Cowboys vs Giants: Stream, Predictions, and Game Info


The Dallas Cowboys hope to end a three game losing streak as they take on their division rival, the New York Giants

The 2-3 Dallas Cowboys head out to New Jersey to face the 3-3 Giants Sunday afternoon. The battle for second place is an important one as both teams try to keep pace behind the 3-3 Eagles in the NFC East division race.

A win this week could even catapult the Dallas Cowboys into first place in the division and a loss could drop them into a tie for last with the Washington Redskins. It’s safe to say, this week is the most important week thus far for the Dallas Cowboys.

Cowboys Predictions

Curry Goff, Sport DFW Staff Writer

Many unknowns and several key match ups make this week’s encounter with New York the most intriguing game of the young season.

Dallas’ limited receiving corps against New York’s banged up secondary. Eli “the enigma” Manning versus Matt “hey, remember when I won 10 games with the Chiefs” Cassel. Jason Garrett‘s straight-laced composure compared to Tom Coughlin’s frazzled old man style.

While I don’t think Matt Cassel will produce much more than Weeden was able to muster, I think the resurgence of the Cowboys pass rush will be enough to fluster Eli and the Giants’ offensive line. Couple that with the Cowboys’ desperation and I think you end up with a low-scoring, scrappy, defensive struggle of a game.

Prediction: Cowboys 17 Giants 10.

The importance of this game cannot be understated for either team. Both squads are ravaged by injuries and both are trying to stay afloat until their reinforcements arrive.

The Cowboys will once again be without Dez Bryant and Tony Romo. It will be up to new starting QB, Matt Cassel, to lead the offense and give the Cowboys something they haven’t had since September 20th – a win.

The additions of Cassel, guard La’el Collins, and running back Christine Michael all look to shake up the offense in this must-win game.

The defense will receive another lift this week as star rookie pass-rusher, Randy Gregory, takes the field for the first time since week 1. The tandem of Gregory and Greg Hardy should provide a significant boost to the Cowboys struggling pass-rush and could make the difference in this game.

As Christian Blood wrote about on Friday, the Cowboys linebacking corps has a chance to be special with Rolando McClain, Sean Lee, and Anthony Hitchens all on the field together.

The key to the game is the offense. The offense needs to allow the defense to rest in between possessions – meaning the offense must actually drive the ball and control the clock. The team with the least mistakes and longer possession time wins this one.
