Dallas Cowboys (7-3) at New York Giants (3-7)

Sunday, 8:30 p.m., NBC

Betting Line: Giants +3.5

 

Brad Carroll (9-1 straight up, 8-2 vs. spread)

Cowboys 28, Giants 20

The Giants are on the verge of completely falling apart. Tom Coughlin is under fire and could be coaching his final games in New York, Eli Manning has reverted back to his old, interception-throwing self, throwing five picks last week in a six-point loss to the 49ers, the offensive line has already fallen apart, and despite playing well last week, the Giants defense is one of the worst in the league. Dallas is one of the NFC's best teams.

 

 

Matt Straub (6-4, 6-4)

Cowboys 35, Giants 20

The Giants are a mess on offense. The Cowboys, assuming Tony Romo can stand up straight and the offensive line can keep him that way, are very good on offense. That's the difference.

 

 

 

 

Craig Carroll (8-2, 7-3)

Cowboys 31, Giants 21

The Cowboys are trending up with a great O-Line, the best running back in football right now and a quarterback willing to gut out a couple broken bones to put themselves closer to the playoffs. The Giants are inching closer to becoming irrelevant.

 

 

Glenn Carroll (6-3, 5-4)

Cowboys 38, Giants 28

Every year we hear how great the Cowboys will be and they end up choking. This year the talk wasn't as heavy and they are playing up to the expectations of years past. These two teams are going in very different directions. Eli Manning will rebound somewhat, but he clearly doesn't trust his offensive line and you can't blame him. They are bad.
