Sterling Shepard #87 of the New York Giants fumbles the ball against Sean Lee #50 of the Dallas Cowboys in the second quarter at AT&T Stadium on September 10, 2017 in Arlington, Texas. The lines opened with a 6 point spread for the Cowboys to cover but since then, it has dropped to 4.5 points; while the posted total opened at 41 points and has since climbed by half a point.

It seems like a lifetime ago when the Dallas Cowboys opened the season with a 19-3 pummeling of the New York Giants.

And save a 38-point outburst at home against the Redskins last Thursday, the Cowboys' offense has been in the tank. Their O/U trends are 1-4 in their last 5 December games, 2-8 in their last 10 games on field-turf, 2-7 in their last 9 home games, and 2-5 in their last 7 games overall. Dallas also won the turnover battle 4-0, resulting in a plus-13 point differential.


According to women who work for America's Team, the players will debut a new uniform combination never before seen by Cowboys fans. The 2-10 Giants are ready to light it up.

The Giants are a hard case to make right now, especially with all the recent turmoil. Quarterback Eli Manning was inexplicably benched for Geno Smith last week against the Raiders and the Giants lost 24-17. NY failed to find the end zone last time and is even less equipped for the rematch. But the Giants added a long field goal with a minute left for the cash.

NY had chances to put more points on the board, but Smith fumbled the ball away twice in field goal range, once from the Oakland 4-yard line. Following the benching of Manning, head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese were fired on Monday and with Manning set to leave next season, their future looks quite murky. But that doesn't mean the Giants wouldn't love to dump on Dallas this week. However, in the spirit of rallying around its venerable quarterback, smart money may give the nod to NY here.

- The Giants are giving up 390.8 yards per game this season, the most in the league. All quotes gathered firsthand unless otherwise noted.
