Cowboys matchup well against the Giants.
No, we don't.
Their WRs scare me. Carr hasn't been himself lately. Claiborne has been injured. Our safety play is embarrassing. Scandrick is our lone bright spot. Nicks, Cruz, and Randle run right through our secondary.
We haven't rushed the passer well these last few weeks. Ware has been quiet when he has played. Hatcher is coming off injury. If we don't pressure Manning, he'll throw for over 500 yards on us.
Their defense doesn't scare me as much as it used to. I think their DL is really hurting this year. But they always seem to come alive vs us. I think their secondary can be had. But teams have been able to take out Dez way to easy.
I can see them blowing us out. If we win, it will be a squeaker. I think some crazy play will have to happen.
Another 13 point prediction? Its like the past 10 weeks never happened.
Flip that, the Giants match-up well against us too. There is not a chance in this life that Dallas only gives up 13 to them, we will be lucky not to give that up in the 1st quarter.
Also, if we only score 24, we lose. The offense will have to be on point next Sunday and 24 is not on point
People were saying similar things going into Philly. That's not the score I'd have picked, but anything is possible.
Aikman and Buck call this game. Just an FYI as I know some people dont like listening to Troy for whatever reason.
Yeah, I totally botched the scores of the Eagles game and also the Rams game. I would've bet money that Rams game would've been a 19-17 type game. So you;re right...one never knows. Especially me!
cowboys matchup well against the giants!

Tough to predict what kind of game any NFCE game is going to be. I think this one gets both teams in the 30's. But I think they get there through some big mistakes on both sides. Sloppy defense, maybe a ST breakdown. A couple of long drives right at the ends of halves that keep one of the teams in it when they should not be. In the end, it's going to come down to a handful of plays that aren't made when it matters most. I don't know which deficient squad's going to not-make them the most.
There's no way we hold the giants to 13. I would be hesitant to say under 20. If we win, I'm guessing it'll be a game where we score in the 30s like last time.
Are you serious??? What from the Giants makes you think they are more capable of blowing Dallas out? This fear of the Giants is laughable...not saying they can't win, but they aren't going to blow out anyone -this is not Brees and these are NOT the Saints. Cowboys are a better team when healthy and they are much further along in that respect than they were going into the bye. If Ware plays and plays well, it will be a blowout the other way.
Giants 31 Cowboys 27
The weather will probably be a big factor. 20-40 mph winds cold and probably rain. If this turns into a running game we'll for sure lose. They have a way better running game and a way better defense.
yeah, i bet we could beat them next week
but the problem is we are playing them this week
Cowboys match up well against nobody. We almost lost to the Minnesota Vikings; a team with a whopping 2 wins under their belt this season.
Regardless of who the Giants have played recently, they have momentum and confidence. I have no problem believing that this secondary will get torched by Cruz, Randle, Nicks, Myers and whoever else the Giants have...and if Mark Ingram can have his first 100 game against this defense, then I'm sure Brandon Jacobs can revitalize his career this week.
I'm not saying that we can't win, I think that we have a shot...but the Giants always make me nervous regardless of their record.
26? How will we manage that? The 34 sounds about right, but I cannot see how 2 yard outs to James Hanna on 3rd and 9 translate to 26 points.
Have you watched this team lately? Have you seen how anemic our offense is? Couple that with a historically bad defense and you have a perfect recipe for getting blown out.
Here's the Dallas Defene resume for the 2013 season thus far
- Gave up 329 receiving yards to Calvin Johnson
- Allowed the Saints to convert 40 first downs (an NFL record)
- Allowed Mark Ingram to have his first 100 yard game of his career
- Are the first team to allow four 400 yard passers and there's still 6 games left to paly
- Allowed over 600 yards of offense to the Lions and the Saints
I'm sure I could go on for a while, but you get the idea. The act like this team can't get blown out is pretty ridiculous.
The Giant's "resurgence" has come at the hands of a very soft schedule. FootballOutsiders does a week-to-week ranking of player performances based on Opponent and Situation Adjustments. Here's how Eli's performance has ranked out of starting QBs in those weeks:
This is not a quarterback playing out of his mind that we can't go punch for punch with. Far from it actually.
I think the Saints game was a small blimp on the radar, Cowboys will get back to playing a really close game only to either win or lose in the final minute. I hate to give any of the sonshine pumpers any hope, but i think the Cowboys have a good chance to win this one. They always seem to play well in all three phases in NY. That said, if they lose this game, i think the season will go into the tank. It’s a must win.
