The Cowboys don’t have any more room for error this season. They share a 6-6 record with Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, but don’t hold the tiebreaker over either team. All three are behind the 7-5 Atlanta Falcons, who are one game behind the Carolina Panthers for the final NFC wild-card spot.

While the Giants have only won two games this year, the Cowboys are in no position to take their division rival lightly, especially on the road. A fairly healthy defense will give them a better chance at securing a necessary victory.
