Dallas Cowboys Vs New York Giants Game Day Preview
Win and then wait! This will be the underlining theme of this NFC East rivalry game. Despite loosing records both teams have an opportunity to host a home NFL playoff game with a WIN and Washington Football Club loss.
The Cowboys bring a three-game winning streak into MetLife. The team look good last week and was led by Andy Dalton and Ezekiel Elliott. Against the Eagles, Dalton threw for 377 yards and three touchdowns and Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 105 yards on 19 carries.
“A win is a win. No matter how you get there, a win is a win,” Elliott said when asked about the possibility of winning the NFC East with a losing record. “So, I mean, if we win the division at 7-9, it’s the same as winning it at 14-2.”
New York Giants
First-year Giants coach Joe Judge made it clear… the organization needs to snap it’s seven-game losing streak to the Cowboys and not the possibility of playing in the postseason.
“Our focus still needs to remain on the Cowboys,” Judge said. “That’s the priority this week. We remain focused on improving as a team. We have a division rival coming up ahead, it’s a big game for us. Obviously, there are implications. As I’ve said all along, those games now don’t exist. Until I can talk about any kind of opponent coming up beyond who we’re playing, there’s not a conversation to be had. Our focus remains on the Cowboys.”
“I’m just focused on Dallas,” added center Nick Gates. “We have to beat Dallas first to be able to even think about the playoffs. After we beat them, we have to see if Washington wins.”
