Pete Vitella, Staff writer says:
This Sunday the New York Giants head into Dallas and look to upset the Cowboys. The Giants will be without Jon Beason and Victor Cruz. Which means some other players need to step up. I think this will be a classic Eli Manning and Tony Romo matchup which means a lot of scoring. Ultimately I picked the Giants originally and I will stick with the pick. I have the Giants winning the game 34-31.
The keys for the Giants in this game will be to protect Eli Manning. Manning will need to be able to step up in the pocket and make all of the big throws. The Giants will also need guys like Rueben Randle and Shane Vereen to step up with Victor Cruz out. If the Giants can get the ball out to those guys they will take some pressure off Odell Beckham Jr. Without Orlando Scandrick the Giants should be able to get the ball out deep to Beckham and Randle.
The Giants defense will have to do just enough to give the Giants the win despite giving up the 31 points. The Giants will do plenty on offense. I except both Quarterbacks to put up monster passing numbers. We have seen Romo and Manning combine for over 700 yards and 6 touchdowns before. I can see it happening again. Both offenses will come out firing but the Giants will hold them off.
