The Giants enjoyed a 27-21 come-from-behind overtime victory last week in New Orleans. Saquon Barkley clinched the win with a 6-yard touchdown run while also putting together his best game since returning from an ACL tear suffered last year. He ran for 52 yards on 13 carries and caught 5 passes for 74 yards and another touchdown. 

Giants' quarterback Daniel Jones is also coming off his best game of the season. He threw for 402 yards against the Saints on 28-of-40 passing with two scores and an interception. His 108.5 passer rating was his highest since his rookie season of 2019. Jones helped open things up for the Giants offense when he connected with John Ross on a 52-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. 

Inactives are as follows:

Giants: CB Sam Beal, OG Ben Bredeson, CB Josh Jackson, S Jabrill Peppers, WR Sterling Shepard, WR Darius Slayton

49ers: OG Aaron Banks, QB Jimmy Garoppolo, WR Jauan Jennings, DT Zach Kerr, CB Buster Skrine, CB Ambry Thomas, CB K'Waun Williams

The Cowboys enter this game looking to cement themselves as the class of the NFC East, a division that was won by an 7-win Washington team a year ago. Dallas dominated the Eagles in week three with a 41-21 win and will look for a similar type of output against the Giants. 

Dak Prescott has led a potent Dallas attack this year and is showing no ill effects from the broken ankle that ended his season in week 5 last year against this Giants team. Prescott has thrown 10 touchdowns to two interceptions this season for a passer rating of 116. Also, Dallas’ running game seems to be back on pace to be one of the best in the NFL. Ezekiel Elliott ran for 143 yards on 20 carries last week in their 36-28 win over the Panthers. That marked Elliott's first 140-plus rushing performance since he took the Eagles for 151 yards in November of 2018. 

The Cowboys are 7-point home favorites against the Giants. The over/under is 52.
