3. Dallas Cowboys

You hate to give a rival this much credit, but the Cowboys are going to be good. They destroyed Tampa Bay in the first round of the playoffs and played the 49ers close in the Divisional Round. Unfortunately, the Cowboys got better this offseason, too.

They added Brandin Cooks to an already stout receiving corps and added Stephon Gilmore to play opposite Trevon Diggs on the defensive side. And, don't forget, they have the best defensive player in football in Micah Parsons.

Talent isn't the only thing the Cowboys have going for them. They have simply owned the Giants in recent memory. Since Danny Dimes became the starter, the Giants have only beaten the Cowboys once. And that one victory? It came when Dak Prescott was injured and Andy Dalton was the signal-caller.

History hasn't been on the Giants side in this rivalry since their last Super Bowl, but it would be a good opportuinity for Jones to earn his contract and at least split the season series. It will be a tough test regardless.
