Watch out Cowboy fans, "It's A Trap" - Cowboys vs Giants Vol 2 is here!
This has a "trap game" is written all over it. Cowboys vs Giants is not gonna be the same game as earlier in the season. The Giants are a much better team than the squad Dallas faced in the season opener when they got the W 35-17. Yes, they only have two wins but Eli is gone and the G-men are more talented at a number of positions.
The human statue that somehow has 2 Super Bowl rings is out and Daniel Jones aka "Danny Dimes" is in. Jones is a rookie and has struggled at times, but he's already better for this offense than Manning. The Giants were averaging just 15.5 points-per-game with Manning, but just over 21 with the athletic rookie.
Jones Will Make A Difference In Cowboys vs Giants Vol 2.
Jones is coming off a game against the Lions where he threw for 332 yards and a career high 4 TDs. For the season he's completing 62.5 % of his passes for 1466 yards with 10 TDs and 7 INTs. While he is still learning the game and needs to work on ball security, this kid is a gamer and can make some plays.
Jones will also have a new receiver who the Cowboys know all too well in Golden Tate. He was suspended the first go around but he's active now and will look to keep his three game stretch of 80 plus receiving yards going. Sterling Shepard looks like he's going to go after clearing concussion protocol so the full Giants arsenal will be available for Jones.
New York also improved on defense when they traded for the former 6th overall pick, Leonard Williams. Williams is stud defensive tackle and when you pair him with this year's first round draft pick Dexter Lawrence, the Cowboy's front will be tested.
The G-Men also have some pass rush mojo off the edge in Marcus Golden (5.5 sacks) and a familiar corner in Janoris Jenkins who does gamble at times, but also has 3 picks on the year. Defenses come alive against division rivals especially when they know a team's tendencies, so Kellen Moore needs to call a good game.
If the Cowboys come out flat in this one it's going to be a long night in the Big Apple. They cannot turn the ball over and shoot themselves in the foot again. Dallas was supposed to beat the other New York team too and we saw how that turned out. The Cowboys need to watch out for this trap.
