It looks like Hurricane Sandy is getting ready to be a factor for may Sunday NFL games. As the jet stream pushes the storm up the coast, you can expect to see many quarterbacks and kickers struggling to keep the ball on target in high winds. One quarterback will not have Hurricane Sandy as an excuse today is Tony Roma as the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants far from the storm in the comfort of the domed Cowboys Stadium.
This is a pivotal matchup for both teams. A win could put the defending Super Bowl New York Giants at the top of the NFC East. A loss for the Dallas Cowboys could have the team clawing out of the basement for the rest of the season.
The Philadelphia Eagles are hosting the red-hot Atlanta Falcons today and the Washington Redskins face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If these games result in loses for the Eagles and Redskins the Cowboys would get a little relief in their division race. That could be a saving grace for the Cowboys today, but they need to be the masters of their own destiny.
Let’s face facts not only is Dallas’ offensive line injury plagued but the back field is back field is also. If the Cowboys cannot establish the run the New York Giants will pick apart, a one-dimensional offensive attach. Adding to Dallas” problems today is the Giant’s lethal pass rushing.
I see the New York Giants walking away with this game. As the Cowboys start their slide to the bottom of the NFC East. Having road games against the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles on deck next is not going to help the north Texas team in their quest for the post season.
