Daniel Jones and the Giants would be very thankful for a bounce back win after a lackluster week 11 performance against the Lions. Jones, who last threw an interception in week 3, threw two picks in Sunday’s 31-18 loss to Detroit. Jones finished the day with 341 yards on 27-of-44 passing. Rookie wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson became Jones’ number one target in the game catching nine passes for 100 yards, but his season is now over after suffering an ACL tear in the loss.

Robinson isn’t alone on the injury front for the Giants. Today, New York will be without defensive backs Adoree Jackson (knee) and Fabian Moreau (oblique) as well as center Joe Feliciano (neck). All three are starters. Meanwhile starting right tackle Tyre Phillips was quesionable heading into today with a neck injury but is “active.”

That banged up offensive line doesn't bode well for Jones or running back Saquon Barkley who rushed for a season low 22 yards against the Lions averaging just 1.4 yards-per-carry, the fourth lowest in his career.  

The Cowboys are not the team that anyone who needs a “bounce back game” wants to see. They are a top 10 defense in yards and they allow the fewest points-per-game in the NFL at 16.7. Dallas is also coming off their most dominant win of the season, beating the Vikings 40-3 in Minnesota. Heading into last week, the Vikings held a share of the best record in the NFL at 8-1, then Dallas had their way with them.

Dak Prescott threw just three incompletions on his way to a 276 yard day with two scores while running back Tony Pollard was the Cowboys’ leading rusher and receiver on the afternoon. Pollard racked up 80 yards on the ground and 109 yards on six catches with two touchdowns through the air.

Throughout the season, while the offense has dealt with injuries, the most consistent part of the Cowboys’ game has been their stout defensive attack. Last week, they sacked Kirk Cousins seven times. Micah Parsons and Dorance Armstrong came up with two sacks apiece in the win. Parsons is second in the NFL with 10 sacks on the season.

The Action Network (opens in new tab) has the Cowboys as 10-point favorites to beat the Giants. This will mark the second meeting between these NFC East rivals. Dallas took their week 3 matchup in the Meadowlands, 23-16. Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb came up with an incredible one-handed catch that broke a 13-13 time in the fourth quarter.
