Excerpt: "The first NFC East rematch of the year finds the New York Giants traveling to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. After sweeping their division rivals in the last month of the 2011 season, the Cowboys were again able to upset the reigning Super Bowl Champions on opening night seven weeks ago.

The Cowboys own a 3-3 record and have not played another divisional opponent yet. They, like many teams around the league, have suffered some devastating injuries (including stud linebacker Sean Lee). There’s also been problems that have plagued Dallas before this season, including clock management issues that helped them walk out of Baltimore with a lose despite rushing for over 225 yards.

The Giants are much better off, with a 5-2 record, but those two losses came against the Cowboys and another divisional rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. They were able to finally win an NFC East game last week at home versus the RG3-led Washington Redskins, but they needed a 77-yard TD pass — where two DBs inexplicably let Victor Cruz run by them untouched — to secure that victory.

Both defenses usually suffer when Eli Manning and Tony Romo faceoff. Thus, expect an entertaining and high-scoring affair this Sunday." Read more...
