It goes without saying, but 2023 was a nightmare season for the New York Giants and they're looking to turn the page this fall. After a playoff year in 2022, Big Blue dropped to 6-11 and missed the postseason for the sixth time in the last seven years and this season may be another challenge with this team dealing with some new changes on both sides of the ball.

In a division that has been dominated by the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys for many years now, can New York finally prove that they're on the same level as them? With those aforementioned changes the Giants are facing, they're hoping that these four nightmare scenarios won't end up coming to fruition:

4. Getting embarrassed by the Cowboys again

It's no secret that the Cowboys have had the Giants number over the years. Dallas has beaten the Giants in their last six head-to-head matchups. Even though this may not seem like a major nightmare, the Giants still cannot afford to be embarrassed by the Cowboys again. Remember what happened last year?

The Giants lost to the Cowboys twice last season in two of the worst possible ways, as they were blanked by them in their season-opener at home 40-0 and in a laugher at Dallas 49-17. New York cannot afford two more drubbings at the hands of the Cowboys this year if they want to be contenders - especially since both matchups will be primetime with their Week 4 matchup on Thursday Night Football and the Week 13 game on Thanksgiving.

There have been arguments that this Cowboys team could take a major step back in 2024 with running back Tony Pollard leaving in free agency as well as Pro Bowl tackle Tyron Smith. They were major parts of the Cowboys success on offense, which dominated the Giants defense last season scoring nearly 90 points. Is this the year the Giants can finally play a competitive 60 minutes against their NFC East foe?
