Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants Preview

The last time the Dallas Cowboys came to Metlife, they laid an egg, losing to the previously winless New York Jets. Now sitting at 4-3, the Cowboys come into this game rested off their bye week. In their last game, the Cowboys thoroughly outplayed the Eagles in a 37-10 victory, regaining sole possession of first place in the NFC East, in a game where Ezekiel Elliott showed that he is in fact, worth every penny. 

With Zeke in the backfield, the Cowboys believe they can run the football whenever they want. By establishing the run early and often, it opens up the play-action opportunities for Dak Prescott to find receivers down field. Last time these two teams played, Dak Prescott exploded, throwing for 405 yards and 4 TDs, proving that he can be worth a big contract in the near future. With receivers Amari Cooper and 2nd year receiver Michael Gallup, Dak should have plenty of opportunities to attack downfield.

The Giants come into this game at 2-6, clearly building for the future. After replacing long-time QB Eli Manning with rookie Daniel Jones, the Giants are now using this season to figure out what current players on the roster will be in their long-term plans.

Daniel Jones lit the world on fire early on, winning his first 2 starts and being anointed “Danny Dimes” by the New York media. Since then, he’s cooled a bit, losing his past 4 starts. In his 6 starts this season, Jones has thrown for 1,466 yards, 10 TD, and 7 INT, as he had proven to be turnover prone at this stage of his career. When these two teams met in Week 1, Jones was holding a clipboard as the backup.

Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants Spread Pick

The Cowboys are 6.5 point road favorites in this matchup. The Cowboys have won 5 in a row in this rivalry. With these two teams having different trajectories for this season, it is important for the Cowboys not to have another slip-up in this stadium. 

The Giants would love nothing more than to play spoiler to the Cowboys playoff goals. However, I don’t foresee that happening. The Cowboys are the much better team, with an explosive offense that can put up points in a hurry. The Giants on the other hand struggle to get anything going offensively, and with WR Sterling Shephard again ruled out with concussion-like symptoms, I don’t see them matching the Cowboys score for score.

Look for the Cowboys to get some big-plays with Prescott finding his receivers running wide-open against this secondary, and a heavy dose of Zeke to close this one out. I’m going with the Cowboys, in a game where they should hold a 2 score lead for most of the game, ultimately covering 6.5.
