The 6-9 Dallas Cowboys have won their last three games with backup QB Andy Dalton under center, and now they need a win in Week 17 against these flailing Giants to have a chance at winning the beleaguered NFC East, with RB Ezekiel Elliott seeming back to full power and ready to help his Cowboys win.

Here’s a wild possibility – with a win here over the Cowboys and a loss by the Washington Football Team, the New York Giants could actually win the NFC East thanks to some tiebreakers, so the pressure is on young Giants QB Daniel Jones to continue his streak of five interception-free games, a must-win scenario for this team to stay alive.

These two NFC East rivals have played each other 117 other times (including 1 postseason game), with the New York Giants winning 46 of those games and the Dallas Cowboys winning 69 of the games, plus they have tied twice.

Can Cowboys QB Andy Dalton Continue to Replace Dak?

This is Andy Dalton’s tenth NFL season and first with the Cowboys, and he has been tasked to step up for the injured starting QB Dak Prescott (who was setting all sorts of potential offensive records before he went down) in a topsy turvy pandemically-challenged season.

Dalton has stepped up – he has posted a record of 4-4 with three wins in a row now, and he has completed 187 passes for almost 2,000 yards and 14 touchdowns and 7 interceptions with a respectable completion percentage of 65.4.

Now the Cowboys can still make the postseason, but a Week 17 win must happen first, so it will be up to Dalton to ride the momentum the team has created these last three weeks and roll right past these offensively-challenged Giants.

Can the Giants and QB Daniel Jones Still Make the Playoffs?

The New York Giants offense is ranked second last in the league right now, averaging less than 300 total yards and about 17 points per game, numbers that have resulted in a pitiful 5-10 record for the regular season.

Still, since the NFC East is pathetic this season, with a Week 17 win, the Giants could still win the division if the Washington Football Team loses to the Philadelphia Eagles since New York has beaten Washington twice and will have split wins with the Cowboys, tiebreakers that fall the Giants’ way.

But first things first for QB Daniel Jones, and that is figuring out a way to take care of these Cowboys, outscoring a team that has a solid rushing and passing attack, and for that Jones must have the game of his life, except WR Golden Tate is listed as questionable (see below).


Editor’s Picks


Cowboys Key Player: (RB) Zeke Elliott

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott did something in Week 16 that he has only done one other time this season, which is to rush for over 100 yards, a sign that the COVID-19 he suffered from this offseason may have had a bigger impact on him than the team initially thought.

Elliott has averaged 4.1 yards per carry this season, and so far, he has posted 230 carries for 937 yards and 5 touchdowns while catching 49 passes for 319 yards and 2 more touchdowns.

The Cowboys need a Week 17 win if they want to play football this postseason, so they need Elliott to show up and make his presence known with a few visits to the end zone, something he hasn’t done since Week 11.

Giants Key Player: (WR) Golden Tate

This is a must-win for both teams here, and the Giants will be counting on a big game from one of their deep threat receivers, Golden Tate, an 11-year NFL veteran in his second season with the Giants still in the middle of a four-year, $37.5 million contract.

Tate and QB Jones have connected 35 times this season in 12 games, a low number given Tate’s history of big seasons in the past with Seattle and Detroit, but so far, he has 388 total receiving yards on the season and just 2 touchdowns.

Currently, Tate is listed as questionable for Week 17 with a calf injury that he continues to manage, so he will most likely end up being a game-time decision.
