Cowboys are (1-0) without Dak Prescott under center as Dallas' franchise quarterback is out with a thumb injury. Last week, against the defending AFC Champion Bengals, quarterback Cooper Rush stepped up in Prescott’s absence. The five-year back up completed 19-of-his-31 pass attempts for 235 yards and a touchdown as Dallas beat Cincinnati, 20-17.

While Rush came up huge in the win, so did Dallas’ defense. Micah Parsons is now leading the NFL in sacks after coming up with two in each of his first two games. Last week, the Cowboys brought down Joe Burrow six times in the win. Four-year veteran defensive end Dorance Armstrong also put Burrow in his book twice last week.  

The Giants are looking to stay perfect in the Brian Daboll era after starting their season with two close wins. They beat the Titans 21-20 in week one, then just edged the Panthers 19-16 last week in their home opener.

After he was hired to replace Joe Judge after two seasons with the Giants, Daboll left his job as offensive coordinator of the Bills to take on the head coaching job with the G-Men. Some players are taking a liking to the new atmosphere. “You come in [the locker room] and [Daboll’s] rapping to Biggie. It’s great” star running back Saquon Barkley told the media after Last week's win.

Aside from liking his head coach’s rap skills, Barkley seems to be back to form after suffering an ankle injury last season and an ACL tear in 2020. The now 25-year-old out of Penn State has played just one full season in the NFL thanks to injuries, but is now leading the NFL with 236 rushing yards.

A Giants win would allow them to keep pace with the Eagles and Dolphins as the NFL's only remaining undefeated teams. 

The Giants are currently just a 1-point favorite and the over under is 39.5 points, so this seems like anybody's game to win.
