Giants-Cowboys News & Notes
The Giants quarterback situation is far from ideal. Daniel Jones (neck) is still not cleared for contact and Mike Glennon hasn’t exactly been lighting it up. Glennon did face the Cowboys in the first meeting, completing 16 of 25 passes for 196 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The Giants lost 44-20.
There have been rumblings that the Giants could give Jake Fromm some playing time Sunday. Fromm, a former fifth-round pick out of Georgia by the Bills in 2020, has yet to play in a regular-season game during his young career.
New York is also having a tough time getting the run game going, with Saquon Barkley averaging just 42.1 yards per game on 3.8 yards per carry.
And, like most teams around the league, the Giants are dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak and have moved to remote operations.
As for the Cowboys, they enter with the second-highest scoring offense in the NFL, but team owner Jerry Jones admitted QB Dak Prescott is in a bit of a “slump,” although he did so tentatively. Prescott has thrown for 3,381 yards with 24 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on the season, though with just a 4:5 TD to INT ratio over the past 4 games.
Dallas is led defensively by rookie linebacker Micah Parsons, who is having a monster year with 12 sacks, 57 solo tackles, and 3 forced fumbles.
