The Giants can cover because
With a healthy Saquon Barkley at his side, Daboll, a former offensive coach for the Patriots, has just recently been able to help the Giants find ways to win. With 236 running yards as of Week 3 in the league, the former No. 2 overall choice, who has now ran for more than 70 yards four times in a row. New York has attempted 55 passes, which is third-fewest in the league, and has tried 57 runs, which is tied for fifth-fewest (65). Its best chance of winning against the Cowboys, who rank 20th against the run but sixth against the pass in the league, is to employ the run and play defence strategy.
In his third start, Cooper Rush, whose completion percentage is barely 59 percent, will face the Giants’ defence and the New York crowd. The Giants have been especially strong against third down conversions, allowing them to succeed only 22% of the time, which is the best percentage in the league. Only 24% of the time do the Cowboys’ offensive plays result in a first down, which is tied for the poorest percentage. Jones will be pursued relentlessly by Micah Parsons, who has four sacks (and 17 in 18 career games), while Trevon Diggs recorded an interception in each of the last two matchups.
the Cowboys’ ability to cover
Since the beginning of last season, Dallas has gone 14-5 and has been the top NFL club against the spread. In their last 10 encounters with the Giants, they are 9-0 straight-up winners and 8-2 against the spread. Rush is surrounded by excellent players and has led comebacks in the fourth quarter to win both of his career starts. In 10 starts versus the Giants, Ezekiel Elliott has scored four times in a row and averages over 94 total yards. Noah Brown, who leads the club with 10 catches, has established himself as one of Rush’s favourite targets. Last week, he led the club in yards with 91.
Another essential component of the attack is Tony Pollard, who finished Week 2 with 98 total yards. Joe Burrow was sacked six times by the Cowboys’ ferocious pass rush last week against the Bengals. Micah Parsons, who is third in the NFL with four of the team’s eight sacks, will be pursuing Jones the whole night. The Giants quarterback was sacked 22 times in 11 games last season, making him 0-8 in prime time in his career.
