7 days five has arrived and the Giants are in the win column.

Massive Blue notched an amazing overtime victory over the Saints very last week driving a 402-property overall performance from Daniel Jones and two touchdowns from Saquon Barkley.

The Giants have the momentum coming off their inaugural victory, but so do their opponents subsequent 3 straight wins.

The Cowboys haven’t missing considering the fact that their defeat from Tampa Bay in the time-opener. They and Dak Prescott are on hearth can the Giants alter that narrative Sunday afternoon?

Player Prop Picks (Courtesy DraftKings Sportsbook)

Daniel Jones Beneath-.five Interceptions (+135)

Daniel Jones has been mindful with the football this time and has thrown just a single choose in four game titles. However, there is legitimate context bordering the lone interception — it was at the finish of the to start with 50 percent from New Orleans very last Sunday when Jones chucked up a prayer to the finish zone.

Jones understands how this Cowboy protection operates obtaining absent from it quite a few moments in his job previously. He’s undergone a excellent time hence significantly and has the prospective to keep on his solid start out this Sunday, all whilst using treatment of the football.

Give me Jones to not throw a one choose at +135, which is a excellent benefit engage in.

Daniel Jones More than-23.five Completions (+115)

I hope the Giants to be down late in this recreation specified the difference in expertise amongst these two teams. They will hence be forced to throw the ball a substantial sum, which will aid in Daniel Jones hitting the over on the above completion total.

Jones has surpassed 23.five completions in two of his four game titles this calendar year and recorded 22 completions in just about every of the other two matchups.

Kenny Golladay More than-four.five Receptions (+115)

Very last week, the Giants didn’t have Sterling Shepard or Darius Slayton because of to hamstring accidents. This led to Kenny Golladay discovering a variety of options to deliver and reeling in 6 receptions for 116 yards in the win over New Orleans.

Shepard and Slayton won’t be partaking in Massive Blue’s 7 days five recreation either, so hope Golladay to after yet again be a noteworthy portion of the offensive recreation system.

Golladay has racked up over four.five receptions just after this time, but the Giants are last but not least clicking on offense and intensely like him in the air assault. Mix that with the accidents this acquiring corps is dealing with, and you see why this need to be an straightforward guess.

Players to Check out

Kadarius Toney

Assume the Giants to deliver rookie wideout Kadarius Toney with a critical part nevertheless yet again.

The to start with-calendar year player set collectively his most effective recreation as a pro very last week from the Saints and caught 6 balls for 78 yards.

Thinking of the Giants have ramped up Toney’s participating in time just about every week and Shepard and Slayton are dealing with accidents, hope Toney to be on the industry for an fantastic variety of offensive reps.

Kadarius may possibly also identify the option to deliver in the punt return recreation as properly. Major punt returner Jabrill Peppers will be sidelined with a hamstring injuries, which could clear the way for Toney to notch exclusive teams reps.

Daniel Jones

All eyes have been on the Giants signal-caller this calendar year.

The huge problem was whether he could build and last but not least establish he’s the prolonged-phrase response at the quarterback situation. And hence significantly in 2021, he’s surely displaying why he’s the man for the job — Jones has thrown for one,184 yards on a sixty six.7% completion level with a 98.3 quarterback score.

But will he be ready to step up from a division rival and build yet another amazing overall performance?

The Giants are riding the momentum coming off their to start with win of the calendar year, which is fortuitous considering this pending matchup with Dallas is their most essential a single of the time hence significantly.

Massive Blue needs a huge recreation out of DJ.

Xavier McKinney/Julian Like

Basic safety Jabrill Peppers will not be partaking in the matchup because of to a hamstring injuries experienced very last Sunday from the Saints.

Enter: Xavier McKinney and Julian Like.

The pair of youthful safeties will have huge sneakers to fill from a hugely gifted Cowboys offense that consists of an elite quarterback in Dak Prescott and prime-tier wideouts in Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.

Assume the Giants to at the very least use McKinney in a variety of means — Patrick Graham need to make use of him in protection whilst also lining him up in the box in move-rush sets.

Each McKinney and Like will require to considerably enhance Logan Ryan, who need to be on the industry for one hundred% of the defensive reps (like he was in just about every of the very last 3 game titles).

This could also be an audition for either youthful security to assume a far more noteworthy part down the street.
