The Dallas Cowboys are ready to challenge for a Super Bowl and that all begins when they take on the New York Giants in the Week 1 Sunday Night Football matchup. After sweeping the Giants in 2022, Mike McCarthy's squad looks for similar results this season.
The Cowboys currently have the edge on DraftKings Sportsbook, sitting as the 3.5-point spread favorite. While that projects the visiting team to win by just one possession, there's also a solid chance that Dallas completely steamrolls New York this weekend.
Here are three reasons why the Cowboys will blow out the Giants at MetLife Stadium in Sunday night.
3 Reasons Cowboys Will Blow Out Giants
3. Dak Prescott Owns New York
Teams turn to their best players whenever the spotlight is the brightest and that's what the Cowboys will do with Dak Prescott this Sunday night. He'll be expected to outduel Giants QB Daniel Jones, which won't be an issue.
After all, Prescott owns New York.
In 12 career meetings against the Giants, Prescott has led Dallas to a 10-2 record. His play against the NFC East rival has only improved with time, yielding 2,755 passing yards with 22 touchdowns (and only 5 interceptions) over the last 10 meetings.
What's even more impressive is that the veteran signal-caller finished with 300+ yards and at least 3 TD passes in five of those contests.
While a lot of his success against the Giants came at AT&T Stadium, Prescott tends to thrive at MetLife Stadium, too. His last four trips to East Rutherford have seen him record an 11:1 TD-to-INT ratio while averaging 298.3 passing yards and a 113.8 passer rating.
For reference, Patrick Mahomes had a 105.2 passer rating in 2022. So, essentially, Prescott has played above Mahomes' level when he's faced New York on the road in recent years.
With one of the best offensive lines and arsenal of weapons in the NFL, Prescott is poised for another dominant performance that leads to a blowout victory.
