Sunday Night is the Giants' SuperBowl
The Giants can't slip now; they've won 6 or their last 7 games and still hold the fifth seed in the NFC playoff race. They're coming off an undeniably ugly performance last Sunday against the Steelers that didn't inspire much confidence in anybody surrounding the team. Another abysmal loss for the Giants could send them into a spiral they may not be able to come out of. The Cowboys are coming in Sunday for a prime time rematch seeking revenge of their only loss on the season. They've won 11 straight and looked mostly impressive doing so and are no where near the same team the Giants beat in early September. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has emerged as more than a rookie of the year candidate; possibly a MVP candidate. Sensational rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott has proved why Jerry Jones and company took him so high in the draft and has rushed for 1,285 yards this season. The Cowboys feature the best offensive line in football that can take over the game in the second half and tire defensive fronts out. Wide receiver Dez Bryant has started to find his chemistry with Prescott and has finally made lethal pair with Cole Beasley on the outside. Moral of the story: the Cowboys have weapons and are a tough match up for any team in the NFL.
