The New York Giants did not look like a good team on Monday night. Despite a quick start, Big Blue were nothing short of disastrous in a primetime loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last week and things don’t get any easier this Sunday.
The Dallas Cowboys head to MetLife Stadium, fresh off a bye week and looking to keep rolling against the New York Giants, who haven’t beaten them since 2012. Of course, the Giants thought they had Dallas beat in Week 1 but both these teams are incredibly different squads now after injuries have taken their toll.
Still, it’s not all bad for New York. Sure, Monday was bad. It was really bad. But the Giants are still in contention at the top of the divisional standings and a victory this week could do a lot to getting the team back on track.
Kickoff for the NFC East tilt is slated for 4:25 p.m. on Sunday. Here’s everything you need about the the matchup’s betting information, per OddsShark:
Line: New York -4
Moneyline: Dallas +225, New York -265
What To Watch For
Jerry Jones is living in a very optimistic world.
The Dallas Cowboys owner was speaking on 105.3 FM in Dallas on Tuesday and surprised just about everyone when he said that Dez Bryant had a chance to play Sunday against the New York Giants. This is the same Dez Bryant who had foot surgery five weeks ago.
“We’ll take a real good look at him tomorrow and Thursday,” Jones said. “It totally depends on how he’s doing. He had a good end of the week last week. He got in some really good work. He didn’t have much negative response from that work. It was strenuous work, the kind that if he can step out here and have a couple of really good days of practice then you could see him go.”
So, what are the chances that Bryant actually plays? Slim. According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, Bryant still isn’t able to make cuts and hasn’t even practiced yet. Rapoport added that Bryant also had a stem cell injection in his ankle last week.
