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.
