In week one the Dallas Cowboys faced the defending Super bowl champion New York Giants on Thursday night football and started the season off with a huge win. The Giants became the first team to win the Super bowl and stumble out the gates and the Cowboys expectations went through the roof.
Now 7 weeks later my New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys Prediction is more difficult to make than ever. The Giants barely survived a home game against the Redskins a week ago and travel to Big D with a sub .500 record in the NFC East. The Giants play better on the road and will be looking to avenge the opening night loss.

The Cowboys are thin at running back where both DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones are banged up. Expect Phillip Tanner to get some running time against the tough defensive Giants front. This will put even more pressure on quarterback Tony Romo to get on the scoreboard through the air against a Giants secondary he exposed in week one. The Cowboy’s injuries are not limited to the offense.
Sources said Tuesday evening that the ligament damage to linebacker Sean Lee’s right big toe, revealed in an MRI, is so severe that it will require season-ending surgery.
The news of Lee’s future is devastating for a defense that has relied heavily on him. In just his third season, the linebacker has become firmly entrenched as one of the team’s leaders. As one of the team’s five captains, he makes the defensive calls and is already regarded by teammates as an inspirational figure in the locker room.
This will be a big hole in the defense that Eli Manning will take advantage of. The Giants are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 5 meetings in Dallas and 37-15-1 ATS in their last 53 road games.
The Cowboys are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 when playing the NFC and 0-5 ATS in the last five home games. Get this line now, because the Giants will win big in Big D this weekend.
