An early-season NFC East battle is on the schedule for Week 3 of 2022 NFL season.
The Dallas Cowboys visit the Big Apple to take on the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
The Da’ Boys ride high after a resilient win over the Cincinnati Bengals led by quarterback Cooper Rush and the defense. Rush was 19 of 31 passes for 235 yards with a touchdown, but it was his steady hand on the stretch that gave fans confidence. Meanwhile, the defense made up big plays time and time again while sacking Joe Burrow six time.
The Giants enter this game undefeated after a gutsy 19-16 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. After two solid wins, the Giants are looking to shake off the underdog tag that hung above them. head for several years. A win over the Cowboys would put the Giants in first place in the division and league, warning that New York’s star team has something special brewing.

Pick by Gambling Analyst Sam Panayotovich:
The betting market continues to go against my giants.
New York opened as a 3-point home favorite there, and the respected play dropped the point spread to -1 almost everywhere (currently -1.5).
It’s pretty crazy, considering no one wanted to bet the Cowboys against the Buccaneers and Bengals, but after an upset with Cooper Rush under center, the Dallas money came back into the cat. Hmmm.
I get that most people aren’t thrilled to score points with Daniel Jones and that roller coaster offense in New York, but Wink Martindale is pushing all the right buttons with defense.
And give me Brian Daboll instead of Mike McCarthy eight days a week.
