Dallas, coming off a beating to the Oakland Raiders, now has to travel to New York and face the Giants for the last time in Giants Stadium. Yes, I know they are struggling but they absolutely do not like us as a team, organization, or even fans. They hate us and we hate them and that can be a lot of motivation for a team.
September 13, 2009 the Giants came to Cowboys Stadium and with the help of 4 interceptions, they squeaked out a last second field goal and a 33-31 win in the stadium’s opener.
Dallas is riding high and Miles Austin is putting us in prime position to make a serious playoff run. Romo is getting protection and he is delivering. Our three-headed running attack was phenomenal on Thanksgiving, and the defense continued to play very, very well.
The Giants pose a far greater test than the Raiders though. For one they are just a better team. Even though Eli is still dealing with the foot injury, we will have to watch out. Last time we saw Smith and Manningham they torched our secondary but to the credit of our team since that game, our defense has been playing lights out and we are 3rd in the conference.
We have a tough three game stretch starting in New York followed by a home game against San Diego and then the monumental task of traveling to New Orleans and trying to slow down Brees and the Saints. We will know by Christmas how good our football team is and what we can expect from them in January. I do not think I stand alone when predicting we will win the division and win in the playoffs.
