Tonight, the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys will play on Monday Night Football for the 10th time. The Cowboys hold a 7-2 edge in those games.

The Cowboys enter this game with a disappointing 1-4 record. For the Cowboys, a Super Bowl favorite during the preseason, this is a huge game. Dallas can make a turn around with a win, or take a major hit to their playoff hopes with a loss. 

It would be fair for you to look at a team with a 1-4 record and call them bad. However, the Cowboys are one of the most talented teams in the league. The New York Giants can not afford to take them lightly.

The Cowboys are third in the NFL in total offense and fourth in defense. Normally you would think a team with those numbers would have a winning record and be on their way to a solid season. So, what is holding back the Cowboys?

Mistakes. Penalties. Turnovers.

Dallas has committed 49 penalties already this season. They are also 30th out of 32 teams in turnover margin. Penalties will hurt you. Turning the ball over will hurt you even more.
