2. The Giants Can't Match Cowboys' Offense

Strong offenses win football games and the Cowboys have no shortage of high-octane playmakers. While the Giants have some noteworthy names like Saquon Barkley and Darren Waller on offense, the unit can't compete with what Dallas brings to the table.

For starters, the Cowboys averaged 27.5 points (No. 4 in the NFL) and 354.9 total yards (No. 11) per game in 2022. Meanwhile, New York's offense wasn't nearly as consistent, averaging 21.5 (T-No. 15) and 333.9 (No. 18), respectively.

Dallas' wideout trio of CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, and Brandin Cooks is also better than the Giants' WR room, which might as well be empty. When your top three options are Isaiah Hodgins, Darius Slayton and Parris Campbell, "yikes" is the only word that comes to mind.

The Cowboys even have the edge in the backfield. It only took Tony Pollard 232 touches to rack up 1,378 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns last season, whereas it took Saquon Barkley 352 opportunities to tally 1,650 yards and 10 TDs.

Jones can't take over a game like Prescott can, either. In his last six games against Dallas, the mistake-prone gunslinger is only averaging 197.2 passing yards with 4 TDs, 3 INTs and a 78.7 passer rate.

Considering how the Cowboys' defense is often seen as the best in the NFL, the Giants' offense will prove to be nothing special again. Meanwhile, Prescott & Co. won't have a problem lighting up a New York defense that has surrendered 31.1 PPG in the last nine matchups between the NFC East rivals.
