Week 8: New York Giants At Dallas Cowboys

Washington Redskins v New York Giants
Dallas Cowboys v Carolina Panthers
Winner Eli Manning may not be the flashiest QB, or have the best numbers, but he sure has made a statement with multiple comeback wins already this season. Eli has started games poorly and finished them like an MVP caliber QB and most importantly, winning games. His Giants now sit atop the NFC East and hope to keep it that way.
Tony Romo has been plagued with two enemies since his first snap. The media and himself. Once he gets into looking like an MVP quarterback carrying his team on his back. The very next game he may throw 3 or more interceptions. Thankfully, Romo has been known to not let either of those enemies effect him for the most part and has his team sitting at 3-3 with a chance to prove doubters that the zero interception win against the Panthers last week wasn't a fluke.
Winner With options like Victor Cruz and Domenik Hixon at wideout, some may say Eli Manning has his work cut out for him. Not to mention Ahmad Bradshaw has been pounding the rock with emotion this year and newly acquired rookie David Wilson has the speed to burn a slower defense.
Running Back Felix Jones hasn't had the explosive season since his debut and DeMarco Murray is doubtful for week 8. Giving an edge at running back to the opposition. On a brighter note they still have the highly efficient Jason Witten at tight end and Dez Bryant has been showing signs of being that potential go to guy.
After getting a work out against the Redskins in week 7. Thanks to RGIII, the Giants may find it a little easier to get to the QB this week. Jason Pierre-Paul, Osi and company will be looking to put pressure on Tony Romo, but the Giants secondary has been giving up a lot of points this season in the air.
Winner The Cowboys defense proved many doubters wrong in week one, beating the defending champs in a brutal fashion. DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer are sure to put pressure on Eli Manning and Rob Ryan is one of the best at mixing up pass rushes and coverages.
Special Teams
Winner The Giants have a solid kicker with Lawrence Tynes. Tynes can perform in the clutch and has just extended his PAT streak on the 5 year anniversary of when he last missed one. Their return man David Wilson has proven to be lethal, averaging 26.5 yards a return.
The Cowboys have been struggling in this area for awhile now. They seemed to have finally found a long term answer with their kicker Bailey, but need a long term solution at returner. The problem is evident with having Bryant returning punts with a groin injury, there needs to be a better option. Not to mention it never helps when said returner gets flagged for losing his cool.

The Winner Is

Washington Redskins v New York Giants
Winner Giants
3 out of 4

With the Giants edging out the Cowboys in every category except defense. It will be a huge task for the Cowboys to pull this one off. Barring some sort of miracle, the Giants should be able to pull this win off.
