Today’s Dallas Cowboys game could be the team’s sixth win in a row, but New Yorkers will watch Giants vs Cowboys online free or on Fox to see if the NY Giants can get back on track after last week’s 27-0 shutout against the Eagles. Dallas by far has the best momentum after their 30-23 road win against the Seattle Seahawks last week and with QB Tony Romo playing the best football of his career.
And oh yeah, some guy named DeMarco Murray in the backfield, who happens to be the NFL’s leading rusher through six weeks.
Romo has once and for all silenced his critics. For the season he’s completed 131-of-191 passes for 1,510 yards and 11 touchdowns. Good numbers, sure, but they underscore how he’s performed in pressure situations. Last week in Seattle, for instance, Romo recovered from an awful start to go 21-of-32 for 250 yards and two touchdowns without an interception.
Of course, it’s helped that Romo has running back Murray to do some heavy offensive lifting from the backfield. Against the Seahawks Murray ran for 115 yards, making him just the second running back ever with six straight 100-yard games to start a season. Joseph Randle has been no slouch, averaging 7.1 yards per carry, but Murray is clearly the rushing story of both the Dallas Cowboys and the NFL.
That’s not good news for the NY Giants going into today’s Cowboys game. The Giants allow an average of 116 rushing yards, 17th in the league, and nearly 262 yards in the air, ranking them 24th. With Romo and Murray clicking on all cylinders, today’s Giants Cowboys game could be a blood bath.
With that said, quarterback Eli Manning had seemed to finally find his place in the Giants offense before last week’s blowout loss. Though his season stats aren’t great — 125 completions for 1,325 yards and 11 TDs — they had only begun to pile up in Weeks 4 and 5, and pundits like Colin Cowherd were calling Manning and the Giants offense one to watch.
Still, the Cowboys have won the past two meetings between these two teams, 36-31 in September last year and 24-21 in November, and Dallas is playing even better going into today’s game. Here’s some key information as you prepare to watch Giants vs Cowboys online free live streaming for Week 7.
