The Dallas Cowboys will host the New York Giants on Sunday at AT&T Stadium for the 117th game between the two NFC East franchises.

Both teams are off to a bad start this season -- the Cowboys are 1-3 and the Giants are 0-4 after four weeks -- and looking to pick up a much-needed divisional win.

Last week, the Cowboys mounted a big comeback but fell short against the Cleveland Browns, 49-38. The Giants lost a low-scoring affair to the Los Angeles Chargers, 17-9.

The Giants are pretty healthy, with only a couple of defensive players on the injury list. Linebacker Kyler Fackrell (neck) and safety Jabrill Peppers (ankle) were limited participants in Wednesday and Thursday practices, while linebacker Oshane Ximines (shoulder) was non-participant on both days.

Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants Predictions

The Cowboys enter this game as favorites and rightly so. They have been prolific on offense, scoring 30-plus points in their last three games. The Giants' defense was run ragged two weeks ago by 49ers backup QB Nick Mullens of all people, and now they face Dak Prescott, who has thrown for 450-plus yards in his last three games.

Prediction: Cowboys for the W.
