Matchup rating: 39.9 | Spread: DAL -10 (54)
What to watch for: New York offensive coordinator Jason Garrett’s unit needs to get going against the Dallas defense. In its past three games, the Cowboys’ defense has allowed four, five and six touchdowns to Atlanta, Seattle and Cleveland, respectively. The Giants have scored three touchdowns in their first four games, but the Cowboys defense might be the perfect slumpbuster. — Todd Archer
Bold prediction: Dallas wide receiver Michael Gallup tops 100 yards with 2 TDs. Forget that Gallup is coming off a quiet game (2-29-0) against the Browns. The Giants’ defensive weakness is that No. 2 cornerback across from James Bradberry. Whether it’s Isaac Yiadom or Ryan Lewis out there, expect Dak Prescott to exploit the matchup, leading to a big day for Gallup. — Jordan Raanan
Stat to know: The Giants have just 306 rushing yards this season, second-worst in the NFL and the eighth-fewest total though four games in franchise history. Only twice have they been held under 350 rushing yards through five games (1942 and 2013).
What to know for fantasy: Prescott’s torrid pace cannot be overstated, but don’t forget that there are only six quarterbacks (Prescott being one of them) to have scored more fantasy points than the Cowboys have allowed to the position. See Week 5 rankings.
Betting nugget: Dallas is 10-2 ATS against the NFC East over the past three seasons. Read more.
