If the New York Giants defense can get pressure on Andy Dalton and force him into turnovers they could beat Dallas. Giants quarterback Daniel Jones needs to play smart football and make right decisions. Wayne Gallman has the opportunity to have a big game against the Cowboys front seven.
Prediction: Dallas Cowboys offensive talent continues to roll against the New York Giants in a close game.Published 01 Jan 2021, 08:52 IST
