The winner gets the NFC East crown and a trip to the playoffs, while the loser goes home with nothing to show for it, and a lot of heat to face from media and fans alike.
Both teams are at 8-7 and have already met this year in a game that came down to a field goal block to secure a Giants win.
The last go-around was epic, so I can only imagine how this game will play out.
The pressure couldn't be any higher for the Cowboys and Giants, and this game is sure to add yet another incredible chapter to this already great rivalry.
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
When: Sun. Jan. 1. 8:20 p.m. EST
Spread: Giants -3
They do have the home-field advantage, so I'd take this.
I would say there should be a lot of scoring in a game of this magnitude.

Key Injuries via NFL.com:
Cowboys Did Not Practice 12/29: Linebacker Sean Lee (wrist), safety Dany McCray (ankle), defensive tackle Jay Ratliff (ribs), linebacker DeMarcus Ware (neck), quarterback Tony Romo Limited (right hand).
Giants Did Not Practice 12/29: Tight end Jake Ballard (knee), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle), wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (hamstring).
Fantasy Big Plays:
Start: With Hakeem Nicks still battling the injury bug it's about time for Victor Cruz to have another epic performance. He was quiet for a couple weeks, but came out last week against the Jets and notched 164 yards and a touchdown. Expect more of the same.
Sit: Romo will most likely give it a go with the bruised left hand. Can't trust a guy like Romo with this injury, especially in fantasy.
Keys To Cowboys Win:
Jason Witten is going to have to be the go-to-guy for the Cowboys. With Romo possibly playing hurt, Witten is going to have to be a strong check-down option for him.
He's going to have to get himself open and allow Romo to make the easy passes.
Keys To Giants Win:
The best way for Eli Manning to go out and prove that he's a Pro Bowl player is to go out and win this game for his team.
The Cowboys are good at stopping the run on defense, but have struggled against the pass, giving up 238.3 yards per game through the air.
This plays right into the Giants' hands, now all Manning needs to do is control the game.
The Giants are at home and come off a convincing win against the Jets. That plus Romo's injury is too much to ignore.
Cowboys: 17 Giants: 27
