Can NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones finally lift the offense and guide head coach Joe Judge to his first career victory Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys?
The NY Giants (0-4) look to avoid an 0-5 start to the 2020 NFL season and climb back into the NFC East race when quarterback Daniel Jones, wide receiver Darius Slayton, and head coach Joe Judge take on Quarterback Dak Prescott, running back Ezekiel Elliott, wide receiver Amari Cooper, and the Dallas Cowboys (1-3) at 4:25 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 10 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Through the first four weeks of the season, the Giants offense is averaging just 11.7 points per game, but could see an opportunity to breakout against the Cowboys’ defense that is surrendering a league-high 36.5 points per game.
NY Giants Week 5: 3 X-factors to beat Dallas. The NY Giants need 3 X-factors to step up to beat Dallas.
Will this be the week Judge finally picks up his first victory?
Judge has been leaning on offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, for his extensive knowledge of the Cowboys’ personnel this week. But, Garrett is still trying to figure out what the strengths of his current offense are.
“You certainly want to do the things that you’re good at,” Garrett said Thursday. “And we’re trying to discover what those things are both in the run-game and the pass-game.”
