The New York Giants (4-9) will host the Dallas Cowboys (9-4) at MetLife Stadium.

Backup quarterback Mike Glennon will start again for the Giants. It is still unclear if Daniel Jones will come back this season as he is dealing with a neck injury.

The Giants have been a mess this season and it does not help that they have to face another explosive offense. They have suffered injuries and have been playing below average on both sides of the ball.

Last week, Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers put up a scoring clinic against the Giants, winning 37-21. Do not let the final score fool you. New York could not get anything done against Los Angeles until garbage time.

The Cowboys’ offense has been inconsistent the past few weeks, but they are still in the driver’s seat in the NFC East. They have the second-highest scoring team in the NFL. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has had the Giants number since losing twice to them his rookie year. He is 8-0 since then.

New York’s defensive line is going to be hard-pressed to slow down Dallas. The last time they played in Week 5, Dallas ran all over them. The team rushed for 201 yards on 39 attempts. Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 110 yards on 21 carries.

Players to Watch

Giants running back Saquon Barkley has struggled coming back from a torn ACL last season. The last time he played Dallas he suffered an ankle sprain that made him miss four games. Barkley ran for a season-high 64 yards last week and caught three passes for 31 yards against the Chargers. In the next four games, he will try to prove that he is still an elite player.

Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons is 2.5 sacks from tying Jevon Kearse’s rookie record of 14.5 with Tennessee in 1999. He currently has a six-game streak of one sack. The first-round pick from Penn State is also in the running for Defensive Player of the Year. Parsons could be the first rookie to win it since Giants’ Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor in 1981.

Key Injuries

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (ankle) and WR Cedrick Wilson (COVID-19) are out. Backup RB Tony Pollard can return after missing a game with a foot injury.

Giants QB Daniel Jones is likely to miss his third straight game with a neck injury. WR Kadarius Toney (oblique, COVID-19), CB Adoree Jackson (quad), S Xavier McKinney (COVID-19), CB Aaron Robinson (COVID-19) are out. DL Leonard Williams (triceps) is questionable.

Right now the Giants are very thin at the corner/safety positions with players testing positive with COVID-19. An already battered team continues to add to the list of players that cannot play Sunday.

New York is currently 10.5-point, home underdogs. The over/under is 44.5 points.
