On the road, it makes sense to put the Cowboys as a slight underdog (basically a pick ‘em, though). They have Cooper Rush as their quarterback with Dak Prescott out, but Rush was serviceable in Week 2, throwing for 230+ yards and a touchdown.

The Cowboys offensive line, despite the injuries, has been OK this year, and Rush has a great group of weapons with wide receiver Michael Gallup potentially back in the lineup.

Sadly, tight end Dalton Schultz will likely miss this one with a PCL injury, but Gallup coming back helps ease some of that burden.

The Giants have struggled in coverage this season, ranking as the No. 22 unit per Pro Football Focus. Cornerback Adoree’ Jackson has been the best this season, giving up just one catch on seven targets.

Has a whole, the Giants have allowed 34 catches for 411 yards and three touchdowns. Rush may not seem like this surgical passer—he isn’t—but his cast of weapons, including the ever-so-explosive running back Tony Pollard out of the backfield, helps immensely.

As for the Giants, they have solid offensive weapons, too. Yes, the Cowboys coverage unit is better, but it’s not a significant discrepancy.

The main weakness here lies within their offensive line and the need to defend linebacker Micah Parson.

The Giants have left tackle Andrew Thomas, perhaps the best left tackle in the league, through the first two weeks. However, Parsons may be on the other side of the field, decimating rookie tackle Evan Neal and guard Mark Glowinski.

In the end, the Giants will still put on points in this one, but the top-end players for the Cowboys will help push this one in their direction.

As mentioned, both of these teams have solid weapons. They are going up against coverage units that aren’t anything to shy away from.

The Giants will look to get running back Saquon Barkley involved early and often, and quarterback Daniel Jones can also do some damage with his legs as he has eight designed runs this season.

You may be cautious about him going up against cornerback Trevon Diggs. While he is known for turnovers, he gives up plenty of yards. So far this season, Diggs has allowed 10 catches on 15 targets for 98 yards and a score. He’ll do battle primarily with Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who, in his own right, is an above-average wide receiver—he’s just coming off an Achilles injury.

Neither of these offenses will ever lead in any major statistical category, but for a total under 40 with two teams with playmakers on offense and holes in coverage? Smash the over here.
