Excerpt: "The Giants are headed to Dallas -- where they practically own Cowboys Stadium, as much as Jerry Jones does.

They are 3-0 at Jones’ $1.2 billion stadium. If the Giants can make it four straight, they’ll not only disappoint Jones -- who told Dallas fans to come watch the Cowboys "beat the New York Giants' ***" earlier this summer -- but they will put themselves in solid position heading into the second half of the regular season.

Here are five things to watch for on Sunday in Dallas:

Stay the Mann: Eli Manning (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5526/eli-manning) saves some of his best games for the Cowboys, especially in Dallas. He has won four of his last five games in Dallas, and has six 300-yard games in his career against the Cowboys -– more than he has against any other team.

In the new Cowboys Stadium, Manning has passed for at least 306 yards and two touchdowns in all three of his games. Dallas did hold Manning to 213 yards and one touchdown in the season opener. If the Cowboys’ improved secondary is the real deal, it will find a way to slow down Manning in Dallas.

Get Romo: The Giants sacked Tony Romo (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5209/tony-romo) twice in the season opener, but defensive endsJason Pierre-Paul (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13256/jason-pierre-paul), Justin Tuck (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/8488/justin-tuck) and Osi Umenyiora (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/4514/osi-umenyiora) were shut out, as Romo was able to elude the rush for the most part.

The Giants can’t afford to let Romo make plays with his legs and right arm. Romo burned the Giants with three touchdowns back in September. " Read more...

This is the sad truth. But it's not the building that matters, it's the team and, in that regard, the Cowboys can't hold a candle to the GIANTS.
