NEW YORK GIANTS (7-3) @ DALLAS COWBOYS (7-3)
DALLAS COWBOYS -10 O/U 45.5
Big matchup today in Dallas for their annual Thanksgiving Day game going against their division rival the New York Giants who are also 7-3 on the year and tied with them for 2nd in the NFC East. The Eagles are up 2 games on both of these teams, so a win today could help if a tie breaker comes into play around playoff time.
NEW YORK GIANTS 7-3
The Giants do not throw the ball very much having attempted the 4th fewest passes in the league, but when QB Daniel Jones gets the call to throw the ball, he completes 65.1% of his passes. He has thrown 9 TDs through the air. He threw the most passes of any game this season during last weekends loss against the Lions. Jones also has 4 rushing TDs this season.
RB Saquon Barkley is leading their rushing attack, ranking 2nd in the league with 953 rushing yards while adding 6 rushing TDs. He also has 31 receptions for 210 yards receiving.
The New York defense has recovered 10 fumbles which is tied with Seattle for the most in the league.
Their schedule over the next 5 games looks difficult. They have 4 consecutive divisional games and then travel to Minnesota the day before Christmas.
DALLAS COWBOYS 7-3
The Cowboys are coming off a dominate performance last weekend against Minnesota winning 40-3 on the road. In control throughout the game and not allowing the Viking Offense to move the ball.
WR CeeDee Lamb is leading the team and is ranked 9th in the league with 58 receptions and ranks 11th with 751 yards to go with 5 TDs this year.
The Cowboys' passing defense is ranked 3rd in the league, only allowing 5.6 yards per catch to go with 7 INTs. They have only given up 5 rushing TDs and 11 passing TDs.
New York will need to find a way to throw the ball today. If the Cowboys Defense can focus on the Giants running game, New York may struggle to put up points.
The Cowboys have started using both Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott at running back which has brought two different and effective running styles to the backfield.
