Through 13 weeks, the Cowboys hold a one-game lead over the Giants with a record of 7-5. With four games left to play, these two teams will face each other twice.
The Cowboys are the team that has been coming on strong lately, winning four of their last five. The Giants, on the other hand, are nursing their wounds and have lost four straight games.
The team that wins the Sunday Night Football showdown will control the NFC East, because even with a tied record the Giants would hold the tie-breaker, having beaten the Cowboys.
There have already been questions this season regarding the job security of both head coaches. Fans in New York are tired of the way the Giants have historically finished their seasons under head coach Tom Coughlin.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has been under fire all year, and the questions about his security were bolstered by botched game management and a distrust of his offense in the team's latest loss to the Cardinals.
It would seem from an outside perspective that the Giants have more to lose and more to gain with the victory, but I can assure you that the Cowboys aren't approaching the game with that kind of mentality after getting beaten in Week 13 by the Arizona Cardinals.
There certainly isn't a shortage of story lines to follow in this game, and I will be surprised if the game itself doesn't live up to the hype.
After all, it's the Giants vs. Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Does it get any better than that?
