The NY Giants are yet again in deadman’s land after starting 0-4 for the second time in four years. These dreadful starts are ending the Giants’ season in October every year and eventually, something has to give.

Joe Judge must have his team ready and prepared for a 60-minute battle with a divisional opponent. It’s been far too long that the Cowboys have beaten the NY Giants. However, this Dallas team is certainly flawed.

Dallas comes in as the 9.5-point favorite and they are desperate to save their season with Mike McCarthy in his first season as Jerry Jones’ Head Coach. They are the more talented team and will be looking to continue their six-game winning streak against the NY Giants.

Big Blue is looking forward to going on the road and finally playing in front of fans for the first time this year.

Joe Judge said,

"“It’s exciting, I think there is a part of football that obviously we all want fans there. There is a different kind of energy at home and away, but both energies really add to the atmosphere and add to the environment. I’m looking forward to playing Dallas this week and the bonus that there will be fans there as well. That’s just added incentive.”"

Both teams should come in playing with urgency to get ahold of their season and start the new decade off on a better track. Take look at the 3 Giants that will be key X-factors for Sunday’s game.
