Every week the NFL brings excitement, confusion, upsets, and just plain brawls.

In the NFC East, you can always count on a Giants-Cowboys matchup to give you all you can handle. I have decided to initiate a series of articles to serve as a commentary on the Cowboys, and the NFC East, for the rest of the season. This article will be my first post and prediction for the 2009 season. 

Sometimes, I get these things right, so if you disagree, feel free to comment in a courteous manner.

New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys

You can always trust a rivalry game to bring excitement and to turn the intensity up a notch. But when that rivalry game consists of two NFC East teams the game becomes electrifying.

The Giants are still the Giants, and they are still a formidable team. Although last week, they looked shaky against the Redskins. Even though the Giants were able to squeak out a win, the Redskins exploited the G-mens weaknesses more than once.

Nearing the Sunday night, the Giants are considered to be the underdogs in the grand opening gala that is a Week Two regular-season rivalry matchup between two bitter rivals. The Giants have been on the back-burner all week and have been overshadowed by the spectacle that is the new Cowboy's stadium. They are more than happy to play the role of the spoiler this weekend.

The Cowboys, on the other hand, are coming off of an amazing performance by Tony Romo and the Boy's offense. The Defense though looked horrid and weak against the Tampa Bay Buc's. Cadillac Williams and former Giant Derrick Ward inflicted all kind of damage on the defensive line all game long.

The Cowboys are in trouble if they dont shore up that D-line by Sunday night, because Brandon Jacobs is going to terrorize them in the entire duration of game. But you can also say that the G-men are in trouble too. Tony Romo is going to torch the Giants secondary, and the new Earth, Wind, and Fire (Barber,Jones, and Choice) are gonna bang that D-line back to earth until it is incapable to take more.

The Game is pretty much going to be a QB duel. The Giants are fired-up and, the Cowboys' Defense looks really shaky. Both QB's have the ability to light up the scoreboard and, I'm sure, it will be just that.

Prediction: Cowboys win at home 34-28.
