The first NFC East match-up is upon us. The New York Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys this Monday in a very interesting situation. That being that the Giants are one of the only 6 undefeated teams right now. Will that come to an end when they play the Cowboys?
I recently had the honor to be a guest on The Call Sports Talk NY this Thursday night and talked with Stephen Florival about Monday night's upcoming match-up. In the interview, I mentioned what players to look forward to watching and my score prediction.
To preview the game itself, we'll be seeing an unusual quarterback match-up here. Quarterback Daniel Jones vs Cooper Rush. Jones has been playing much better early in this season than his previous ones with a total of 364 yards and 3 touchdowns already.
Meanwhile, Cooper Rush sits at 235 yards against the Bengals and 1 touchdown. Both quarterbacks are similar in ways of their awareness of the field.
On another note, the Giants haven't seen a defense like the Cowboys' yet. Micah Parsons is once again expected to play big and rack up more and more tackles. The Giants' defense has been pretty good too. They've held the Panthers to 16 points and Titans to 20.
As good as these defenses are, I'm expecting the quarterbacks and offenses of both teams to start picking up the pace and scoring more points. In the interview, I mentioned that the final score will be 24-26 Cowboys.
Neither team has had their opponent score over 20 points against them, It should end on Monday.
Another factor to include is the Giants' new Head Coach, Brian Daboll. This is Brian's first head coaching job after having over 20 years of experience in the NFL. Brain so far has had tremendous success with the Giants and has really managed to turn this team around early in the year.
This will for sure be a game that you'll want to tune in for as each team seems to be equivalent to the other.
