“No. 1 Dallas (minus 3 1-2) at No. 11 New York Giants
Cowboys put division and perhaps a lot more to bed.
Prediction: COWBOYS, 24-16”
Game tonight tonight: 7:30 p.m. central
TV channel: NBC
Odds: Dallas minus 3.5 (over/under 47)
oaring out of Texas come the Dallas Cowboys , headed to the Big Apple ready to grab a division crown and maybe more.
Crawling out of Texas come the Houston Texans , headed to Naptown for a first-place showdown with the Colts after blowing an exclusive AFC South lead.
Yes, the Lone Star state has two division leaders heading into Sunday. That’s about the only resemblance.
Dallas (11-1) takes on the New York Giants (8-4), the only team to beat it, in prime time. A Cowboys victory gives them the NFC East title. They already own a playoff berth, and if Detroit and Settle both lose, they also could leave the Meadowlands with home-field advantage for the NFC playoffs.
That’s big doings in Big D, so don’t expect them to back off.
“A mentality is something you’ve built up to get to this point,” says rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, the NFL’s leading rusher.
“It’s something that is your character. If you’re the type of guy who coasts, you’re the type of guy who coasts. But we don’t have those type of guys in this locker room. I don’t have any worries about that.”
The Giants had won six straight before falling in Pittsburgh. They also lost their top pass rusher, Jason Pierre-Paul, for the season.
But they’re the leader in the NFC wild-card race.
“This is huge,” says defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins. “Not saying the last game we had wasn’t huge, but this is big in the division. We have got to win this. My ultimate goal is to win the division and they are in our way, so we have to make sure that we get them taken care of.”
