The Cowboys play host to the Giants on Thanksgiving in a 7-3 team battle. They are second in the NFC East behind the 9-1 Eagles while each have a 1.5 game lead over the last-placed Commanders.

Needless to say, this game will go a long way in determining which team will be able to challenge the Eagles for the top spot in the division. It could also be key to potential tiebreak scenarios between teams as they battle for wildcard positioning.

The Cowboys beat the Giants 23-16 in Week 2 of Monday Night Football. That was with Cooper Rush as quarterback. Now the team will have Dak Prescott behind center, so theoretically they should do well against a Giants defense that’s chipped at cornerback.

16:32 — The performance of the national anthem has ended. The game will start shortly.

16:25 — The winner of that Giants-Cowboys game will own second place in the NFC East alone. Additionally, if the Cowboys win, they will own the head-to-head season tiebreaker over New York. If the Giants win, it is 1-1 against Dallas in the season series.

16:15 — Giants cornerback Darnay Holmes will play a big role in tonight’s game as some Giants corners are missed. He wished fans a Happy Thanksgiving before the competition begins:

16:10 — The Giants will be down a lot of from key players. This includes two of their best cornerbacks, Adoree’ Jackson and Fabian Moreau, as well as several offensive linemen. This will make life difficult for them against the cowboys.
