Dominant Dallas Cowboys Look to Extend Streak
The Cowboys have been the dominant force in this matchup, defeating the Giants in 11 of their last 12 encounters. They’ve racked up a staggering 349 points over that span, a feat reminiscent of their 1968-73 run against the Eagles.
Dallas’ defense, a turnover machine, has led the NFL in forced turnovers for two consecutive seasons — a first since the Steelers’ three-year run from 1972 to 1974.
CeeDee Lamb in Elite Company
Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb has been a revelation for Dallas, amassing at least 900 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons. He joins the legendary Bob Hayes as the only other Cowboy to achieve this milestone.
New York Giants’ Turnaround
The Giants, on the other hand, have made significant strides in ball security. After leading the league with 30 turnovers in 2021, they reduced that number to 16 last season — the second-fewest in the NFL.
Quarterback Daniel Jones has been a dual-threat, becoming only the second player in 90 years to record at least 3,000 passing yards and 700 rushing yards in a season while throwing five or fewer interceptions.
Saquon Barkley: The Do-It-All Back
Running back Saquon Barkley continues to be the Giants’ offensive cornerstone, leading the team in both rushes and receptions last season. He joins Frank Gifford as the only Giants to achieve this feat in multiple seasons.
