Eli Manning: Monday Night Game Against Cowboys Is 'Going To Be Wild'

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning knows exactly what to expect when his team invades Dallas to take on the Cowboys next week on Monday Night Football.

“It’s going to be wild,” Manning said Thursday. “They’ll be fired up and the crowd will be into it, and we know how talented they are. We have to have a good week of practice, our preparation has to be outstanding, and we have to go out there and play great football if we expect to win.”

Manning also knows the Cowboys are talented despite their 1-4 record.

“They have playmakers on both sides of the ball, guys you have to pay special attention to that can change the game,” Manning said. “They’ve lost some close games, and every game has come down to the fourth quarter. If they get a play here, play there, if they get a bounce, their record can easily be reversed. They could have four or five wins. We have to go in there and play great football.”

For motivation, the Cowboys also have the memory of Manning signing the locker room wall in the Jerry-Dome after the Giants defeated Dallas last season in the first regular-season game played there.
