The New York Giants look to avenge their Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, when they head to Texas in Week 8 for an NFC East clash.
Dallas has been inconsistent all season, as suggested by their 3-3 record. The Cowboys are, however, coming off of a gritty 19-14 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. Still, the Cowboys have yet to string together back-to-back wins, and a loss on Sunday would drop "America's Team" back under .500.
The Cowboys do hold two edges over the Giants currently though. Dallas is 1-0 in the NFC East – that win coming over the G-men – while the Giants are just 1-2.
New York, meanwhile, can grab a stranglehold on the NFC East with a win. If the Giants win, New York will improve to 6-2 on the season, and 2-2 in the division. At the least, the Giants would hold a game-and-a-half lead over the Philadelphia Eagles, who enter Week 8 with a 3-3 record.
Dallas will be without star running back DeMarco Murray, who will miss his second straight game with a foot injury. The Cowboys will also be without Sean Lee, who will miss the remainder of the season with a toe injury.
