Dallas Cowboys Form

The Dallas Cowboys are 7-3 for the season and their latest match against the Minnesota Vikings finished in a superb 3-40 victory, leaving them 7-3 across their past 10 games and 4-1 in the last five at home.

A strong offense has been a highlight for the Dallas Cowboys this season. The unit ranks eighth in the NFL’s offensive ladder with 25.1 points per game and has put up 31.6 points in the last five matches alone. On the defensive side of the ball, there has been no letup whatsoever. The hosts boast one of the stingiest defenses in the entire country, allowing just 16.7 points per game for this season, and have remained formidable in the past five games, having only given up 19.0 points on average.

As the reigning NFC East champions, a successful title defense is a priority for the Dallas Cowboys right now. By doing so, they’ll seal a playoff spot and a more favorable tie at home.

New York Giants Form

In terms of points added, it’s fair to say the New York Giants have a strong and consistent offense.

2021 was a year of doom and gloom for the New York Giants. A 4-13 record left the away team fourth in the NFC East and out of the playoffs. However, they entered this season billed as an early postseason threat, and judging by their 7-3 start this time around, they’re on target to do just that.
