Eli Manning leads the Giants to take on DeMarcus Ware in Cowboys Stadium on Sunday.

As the leaves begin to fall off the trees, the NFL starts to heat up with some great games in Week 8.

The New York Giants won in thrilling fashion over Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins last weekend and now look to make it two straight NFC East victories in a rematch with the Dallas Cowboys. Big Blue takes a trip to Cowboys Stadium, seeking to avenge its opening day 24-17 defeat at the hands of Tony Romo and the gang.

In MetLife Stadium, the New York Jets are hosting the Miami Dolphins. Gang Green is trying to bounce back from a rough 29-26 overtime loss against the New England Patriots and even its record.

Miami won't be an easy opponent, however. The Dolphins are well-rested coming off their bye week, and they already proved they can hang with the Jets, losing 23-20 in extra time earlier in the year.

Other games to keep an eye on include the Sunday night matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos in the Mile High City, along with the undefeated Atlanta Falcons traveling to face the Philadelphia Eagles.
