The NFC East was a shaky division this year, with a lot of teams playing at an exceptionally high
level at times, but also at a poor level other times. The Cowboys and the Giants will settle who
the division champions is when they meet this Sunday night, at MetLife stadium for the last
playoffs spot in the NFC.
The NFL betting lines have the NY Giants -4 favorites over the Cowboys.
“Obviously Dallas is coming in, we’re both playing for the same thing, for the same prize, so
we know we’re going to get their best effort,” NY Giants quarterback Eli Manning said. “We
have to match that and play better football”.
The Giants beat the Jets last week with a great effort by their young-wide receiver Julio Cruz,
but a loss against Dallas will make their year a waste of time.
New York beat the Cowboys in Dallas with a 37-34 score. To me the “Boys” looked better the
majority of the game, but a late touchdown pass by Eli Manning saved what it seemed as an
elimination game for the Giants just three weeks ago.
The biggest question for Tony Romo is the health of his throwing hand. Romo got injured in
the game against the Eagles last week; he didn´t play for three quarters and the Cowboys loss
20-7 to Philadelphia.
“I was able to do some things with the ball that we weren’t sure about so it was a good start
to the week,” Romo said. “We are going to keep working on it and get all the treatment and
stuff. We should be good to go for this weekend.”
The betting stat of the week: DALLAS is 9-1 ATS Away off Double Digit loss.
My NFL Pick: Cowboys +4.
