We’re in for an NFC East showdown in week 3 of the NFL Season. The Dallas Cowboys, led by Cooper Rush, are facing the New York Giants on Monday night. After a big win at home over the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cowboys are looking to go 2-1. Their offense looked much better in week 2 than they did in week 1. Perhaps Rush could be the future starter for Dallas.

The New York Giants are surprisingly 2-0 heading into this game. Last week, they faced the Carolina Panthers and won 19-16. This week, they’ll have a slightly tougher opponent, but at least they’re at home. With the home-field advantage on their side, QB Daniel Jones will look to get his offense going early. The question is, can they get through the Dallas secondary?

Cowboys vs. Giants Betting Preview and Trends

There are a few things that everyone needs to keep in mind heading into this game. For starters, don’t expect to see Dak Prescott, as Cooper Rush is the current starter. Last week, Rush threw for 235 yards and a touchdown resulting in a 20-17 win over the Bengals.

Rush is an adequate starter, protecting the football and making accurate throws. Although it wasn’t a high-scoring game for Dallas, it was a massive improvement over week 1. They can continue to improve on their offense, as they take on the New York Giants this week.

Dallas’ defense has allowed an average of 18 points per game. They’ve been able to do this against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Cincinnati Bengals. Each of these teams boasts strong offenses and they were limited to under 20 points. Keep that in mind when betting.

The New York Giants are off to a great start this season, winning their first two games. This week the challenge is a bit tougher, however. In week 1, they faced the Tennessee Titans, a team that continues to struggle. They followed it up in week 2 with a win over the Panthers.

Daniel Jones, the starting quarterback, has averaged 182 passing yards per game. Passing isn’t the strong suit for the Giants but running the ball is. By the end of week 2, the Giants are averaging 170.5 rushing yards per game. They rank fifth in the NFL in this category.

For the Giants to win this game, they’ll need to play really strong defense. Through the first two weeks, they’ve allowed 18 points per game, the exact same as the Cowboys. However, if they can get pressure on Cooper Rush and force a few turnovers, this could help them win.

Cowboys vs. Giants Predictions

Cooper Rush has only started two games in his career, but he’s won both of them. As Prescott’s replacement, Rush could see himself a starting quarterback if he continues this trend. He has several targets to throw to, including Ceedee Lamb. The Cowboys have a few players out, but we think between the two, they’re the better option on Monday.

It’s important to note that the Cowboys are only one-point underdogs. With such a small spread, it would seem even the sportsbooks can’t call this one. Through their last ten games, the Cowboys are 9-1 against the Giants. Through that time, they have an 8-2 record against the spread.

Final Score: 23-20 (Cowboys)

EXTRA POINTS

1. The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Dallas' last 5 games.

2. Dallas is 8-1 against the spread in their last 9 games on the road.

3. The Giants are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games.

Best Bet: Dallas Cowboys +1 (-110)

Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Recap DEC 19TH 2021

Dak Prescott threw for 217 yards and a touchdown and the visiting Dallas Cowboys forced four turnovers en route to a 21-6 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J.

Prescott completed 28 of 37 passes for the Cowboys (10-4), who beat the Giants (4-10) earlier this season, 44-20.

Dallas can clinch a postseason berth if the New Orleans Saints lose to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the San Francisco 49ers fall to the Atlanta Falcons later on Sunday.

Tight end Dalton Schultz had eight catches for 67 yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys. Tony Pollard rushed for 74 yards and Ezekiel Elliott had 52 yards and a score.

Trevon Diggs recorded his NFL-best 10th interception, and Jourdan Lewis and Malik Hooker also picked off passes from Mike Glennon (13 of 24, 99 yards) to boost Dallas' league-leading total to 23 interceptions.

Jake Fromm completed 6 of 12 passes for 82 yards in relief during his NFL debut for New York, which has its second three-game skid of the season.

DeMarcus Lawrence had a hand in two turnovers, with his first coming as he hit Glennon to force the ball to go skyward and into the hands of Lewis for an interception.

Elliott converted two plays later after scoring from 13 yards out on a draw for his ninth touchdown of the season.

Greg Zuerlein pushed the ensuing extra-point attempt wide left; however, he answered Graham Gano's 35-yard field goal later in the first quarter with three successful kicks in the second. He made field-goal attempts from 26, 42 and 27 yards to give Dallas a 15-3 lead at halftime.

Lawrence set up Zuerlein's last field goal after punching the ball out from Saquon Barkley, resulting in the latter's first lost fumble of his NFL career. Carlos Watkins recovered the ball for the Cowboys.

Gano made a 42-yard field goal to trim Dallas' lead to 15-6 early in the third, but Prescott found Schultz in the back of the end zone later in the quarter.

Diggs intercepted Glennon in the end zone midway through the fourth quarter.
