Cowboys vs Giants Prediction and Odds: Preview
Barring their first slender defeat against Tampa Bay Buccaneers Dallas has been pretty impressive. They put LA Chargers to bed with a strong performance in the second match. They kept their juggernaut rolling with wins over Philadelphia and Panthers and will be aiming for their fourth win on a trot.
Riding on the shoulder of coach Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator the Cowboys have outperformed most other teams when it comes to offence. They currently are ranked 4th in the offence section.
Defence hasn’t let them down either. They have managed to accumulate a decent defensive unit under the guidance of Dan Quinn who happened to be the coach of the Atlanta Falcons.
They have the 16th best defence in the NFL so far, a rapid improvement from last season when they were 28th.
The Giants are fresh from their win against the Saints and will put all their efforts to tame down the Cowboys. The Giants are defensively more solid and are currently 15th in the defensive ranking although they were 9th in the last season.
They need to work more on the offensive side to match up with the Cowboys as they are way behind in this department. Their offence ranks 21st and need to have a very good game against Dallas.
Daniel Jones was very good in the last match as he had 402 yards alongside two touchdowns and one interception. Giants coach Joe Judge was heavily criticised for Giant’s failure to compete on the big stage. There have been numerous off-field incidents that marred the on-field performance.
But their win over the Saints has brought in a sense of optimism. The coach reportedly used loud music in the changing rooms and in the team meetings to get accustomed to the atmosphere of New Orleans’ Superdome and he might find it useful again as they are about to face Giants at the AT&T Stadium.
The judge praised the Cowboys and particularly he pointed out Dak Prescott for his exemplary performances.
Spin a wheel; there’s a weapon at every turn. He’s still a threat with his legs, he’s not afraid to run it, but this guy really keeps his eyes downfield, looks to extend plays really more for the pass than anything else.”
This team plays fast, they play aggressive, they’re very high-effort and they’re having a lot of results with turnovers. It’s a turnover-driven defenses, they’re having a lot of production and that really stems from up front with the pass rush and the disruption they’re getting there. They’re able to pin their ears back and really get you if they get you behind the sticks.”
