Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott is trying to bounce back this season after his many miscues last year. In 2022, the two-time Pro Bowl QB led the NFL with a career-high 15 interceptions despite only playing in 12 games.    

One of the biggest changes the Cowboys’ offense will undergo is their play-caller. Head coach Mike McCarthy has decided to take over those responsibilities after Kellen Moore parted ways with the team at the end of last season. McCarthy is said to have a style closer to his “West Coast” offensive roots. Prescott referred to McCarthy’s play calling as a “Texas Coast” offense during the offseason.  

Defensively, Dallas has all-pro Micah Parsons entering his third season and looking to start his career with three straight double-digit sack seasons. He has 26.5 sacks combined over two years, including two the last time he faced Daniel Jones and the Giants. The Cowboys also added 2019 Defensive Player of the Year in cornerback Stephon Gilmore who joins Trevon Diggs in the Cowboys’ secondary.  

The Giants are coming off a solid turnaround season under Brian Daboll. The first-year head coach earned Coach of the Year honors by taking over a 4-13 Giants team and turning them into a 9-7-1 team last year. Daboll also coached New York to not only a playoff appearance but also a road playoff victory against the 13-4 Vikings.

This offseason the Giants re-upped with quarterback Daniel Jones, signing the signal caller to a four-year $160 million deal. Then, after a brief dispute, signed Pro Bowl running back Saquan Barkley to a franchise tag of $10 million. They also added another weapon in Pro Bowl tight end Darren Waller who was previously with the Raiders. 

New York hopes that not only the offense is poised for a step forward this year, but also their defense led by now second-year defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux. The fifth overall pick a year ago came up with just four sacks during his rookie campaign. 

According to DraftKings the Cowboys are 3.5-point road favorites against the Giants with an over/under of 45 points.
