The Dallas Cowboys will play the New York Giants in a massive game in the NFC East in Week 12 of the NFL 2013 regular season. The Giants are on a roll with four straight wins coming into this game, and if they can defeat the Cowboys today they will draw level with them in second place in the division. The game will start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Cowboys have lost possession of the top spot in the NFC East and have fallen to .500 on 5-5. The Giants meanwhile look a different team to the one that started the season on 0-6. They have now won four straight games to get to 4-6 and if they can maintain this form through to the end of the season they might just snatch the NFC East title, in what would be an extraordinary turnaround.
The Cowboys have struggled for consistency this season; at times they've performed as well as anyone in the NFL, but at other times have had serious lapses in concentration, and have paid heavily for that.
In recent weeks the Cowboys' form has been won, lost, won, lost. Their last game saw them get crushed 17-49 to the New Orleans Saints. That will have knocked their confidence, but they have had a Bye Week and have had a chance to regroup and re-strategize on how to take down divisional rivals, the New York Giants.
Meanwhile, the Giants will be delighted with how they've managed to turn things around until now, but they will also know their good work will easily be undone if they lose even a few games now as the regular season enters the final straight.
The Giants will be playing their third straight home game today, having previously defeated the Oakland Raiders 24-20 and the Green Bay Packers 27-13 in recent weeks at the MetLife Stadium.
Giants' cornerback Terrell Thomas has expressed confidence coming into this match up, saying that he knows the Giants will win this huge game on Sunday.
There two teams of course met in a season opener in early September, and after a hard fought game the Cowboys came out on top 36-31. That sparked a massive slump in form for the Giants, who went on to lose the next five games following that defeat.
They will hope it is their turn to rattle the Cowboys today, and a win today would give them a fantastic shot at the division title. Following today's match up, the Giants will go on the road against the Washington Redskins and the San Diego Chargers, before returning to the MetLife Stadium on December 15 to face the Seattle Seahawks.
Eli Manning has been throwing far less interceptions of late and the Giants will hope that his improved form can continue. He is 208 of 364 for 2,586 yards and 12 touchdowns.
In comparison the Cowboys' Tony Romo is 239 of 370 for 2,681 yards and 21 touchdowns.
