New York Giants
It's been a rough year for the New York Giants. Injuries, injuries, and more injuries. Also, they probably have had the toughest last nine-game stretch in the NFL: New England, New Orleans, Green Bay and Dallas. It doesn't get much tougher then that, but somehow, the Giants are a win away from being in first place in the NFC East.
The Giants realize what's on the line this week. They could lose their head coach, season and confidence down the stretch. However, If they win, I could see them winning out against Washington, NY Jets and Dallas. Their fate will be decided this week.
Tony Romo has to be great Sunday night; otherwise, Eli Manning will capitalize on every mistake he makes. The defense has to be stellar against this wide recieving corps and watch out for Jake Ballard and Victor Cruz. The key is not giving up the big plays and not turning the ball over. However, the Cowboys could be starting to lose it now after a big loss to Arizona, and they have given the Giants life.
It's time to close the door in the NFC East this week, and I think it will be a high-scoring, intense battle this week in Big D.
Prediction: Giants 35, Cowboys 31
