The New York Giants (1-3) travel to Arlington Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys (3-1) in America’s Game of the Week. The Giants are coming off of Daniel Jones arguably best game as a Giant, hoping to match the electric offense of the Cowboys lead by Dak Prescott.

Daniel Jones

Daniel Jones threw for a career high 402 passing yards against the Saints last Sunday. He hopes to continue his progressing season against a Cowboys team that ranks 2nd in turnovers this season. Jones will need to keep an eye on corner back Trevon Diggs who has 5 interceptions already on the year.

Saquon Barkley

Saquon had his best game as well Sunday with over 100 yards of scrimmage, with one rushing touchdown and one receiving touchdown. Barkley seems to be getting his legs back after a rusty start to the season. The Cowboys run defense has been their weakest part of the defense. The Giants should look to feed Barkley some carries to establish the run game and develop the play action.

Kadarius Toney

Toney has finally showed the Giants what he’s able to do after a rocky off season and very slow start to the regular season. Due to injuries, Toney saw his already increasing role come to light, especially on a third and 18 where his elusiveness picked up the first down. It’ll be the second straight week the Giants will be without Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton, look for Toney to be a threat in the slot.

Adoree Jackson

Jackson could potentially see a good number of snaps in the slot this week going up against Ceedee Lamb. The Giants have not had many answers in the slot this season with Darnay Holmes production decreasing and not finding a consistent rhythm. Look for Jackson to play more inside, giving rookie corner Rodarius Williams to get some snaps on the outside.

Leonard Williams

Williams is due for a big sack, and it may come from the interior of the Cowboys offensive line. Center Tyler Biadisz has had some struggles this season, and teams have gotten good pressure more inside then on the tackles. This would be a big opportunity to line Williams up inside next to Dexter Lawrence and give him some opportunities to pressure Dak. After all, Dak has not been sacked much at all this season and is one of the league’s best against the blitz since 2017.
