The New York Giants are clinging desperately to their playoff hopes with a four-game losing streak following a 6-2 start to the season. One game out of the NFC East race, the Giants are scheduled to meet the division-leading Dallas Cowboys in Cowboys Stadium for the first of two games between both teams in the final four weeks of the season.
Both teams enter this game with a number of question marks and a number of concerns following heartbreaking walk-off losses in Week 13. The Giants fell short in the final seconds against the undefeated defending Super Bowl Champions, the Green Bay Packers, 38-35. The Cowboys dropped an overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals, 19-13, following a boggling timeout by head coach Jason Garrett that may have caused kicker Dan Bailey to miss a final second 49-yard field goal in regulation.
Despite both teams being atop the NFC East and right in the thick of the NFC playoff race, the Giants and Cowboys come into Week 14 stumbling with shoddy play that has become synonymous with both teams in the second half of the season.
The Giants and Cowboys both hope to right the ship and keep on pace as they march towards the playoffs, looking to knock the other off and gain some much-needed momentum.
The New York-Dallas matchups are always a classic showdown with a highlight reel of offense and spectacular defensive performances. Playoff implications seem to always be at stake when these two meet, but who will have the advantage in Week 14?
