    Why Bet on the Dallas Cowboys?

    The Cowboys were 20-17 upset winners over the Bengals this past Sunday as backup Cooper Rush, who completed 19-of-31 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown. Rush came out firing in an aggressive game plan from offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, connecting with Noah Brown three times in the first quarter, including Rush’s lone touchdown on the day. Moore and the Cowboys then let up on the gas and tried to establish the run. Rush will start again Monday with Dak Prescott still out.

    Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that No. 2 receiver Michael Gallup (knee) is scheduled to “take a full slate of reps this week.” Gallup is in line to handle full practice activity for the first time since initially tearing the ACL in his left knee in January, a notable step in the right direction. As long as he can avoid any setbacks during the next few days, Gallup appears to have a shot at returning Monday.

    Tight end Dalton Schultz is dealing with a PCL sprain to his right knee and is being viewed as questionable in advance of Week 3 game. Schultz’s injury caused him to exit late in the Cowboys’ win over the Bengals. Before he exited Sunday, Schultz caught two balls for 18 yards on four targets while playing 90 percent of Dallas’ snaps on offense.

    The Cowboys easily swept the Giants last season but had Prescott for both of those.

    Why Bet on the New York Giants?

    The Giants enter Week 3 of the NFL season with a 2-0 record for the first time since 2016. Head coach Brian Daboll is the fourth head coach in Giants history to win his first two games. New York has been pretty lucky to win both games, but sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.

    This past Sunday, they beat the Panthers 19-16 on Graham Gano’s 56-yard field goal with 3:34 to play. Gano has the only two games in Giants history in which a kicker booted a pair of 50+-yard field goals in the fourth quarter or overtime. On Sept. 16, 2021, in Washington, he kicked 52 and 55-yarders – plus a 35-yarder – in the fourth. The last NFL kicker with a pair of 50+-yard fourth-quarter field goals was Pittsburgh’s Chris Boswell on Nov. 8, 2021 (54 and 52-yarders vs. Chicago).

    Gano’s 56-yard field goal is tied for the second-longest in Giants history. Ali Haji-Sheikh kicked 56-yarders twice in 1983, vs. Green Bay on Sept. 26 and at Detroit on Nov. 7. The franchise record of 57 yards was set by Aldrick Rosas against Chicago on Dec. 2, 2018. Only seven field goals 55 yards and longer have been kicked in Giants history. Gano has three of them, more than any other kicker. He has the most recent Giants field goals from 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55 and 56 yards.

    The offensive line has been a concern in the early going as QB Daniel Jones has faced pressure on a league-leading 49.3 percent of his drop backs this season. It’s the highest mark in the league, just ahead of Justin Fields and Baker Mayfield. New York’s shoddy offensive line has made it nearly impossible for Jones to let downfield routes develop, resulting in a 6.3 average intended air yards per throw, the fifth lowest in the NFL through two weeks. Jones after two weeks has Pro Football Focus’ fourth lowest passing grade among quarterbacks who have taken at least half of their team’s snaps.

    Coach Brian Daboll this week praised the decision-making of Jones, who has neither lost nor thrown an interception in his past four starts at home. “It starts with decision-making at quarterback. He touches the ball on every play. And he’s done a good job of that. We’re going to continue to build that. But I’m pleased with where he’s at.”

    Outside linebackers Kayvon Thibodeaux and Azeez Ojulari are “getting closer” and will do more team reps this week in practice after both missed the first two games of the season. Thibodeaux was the No. 5 overall pick in this year’s draft.

    This is the Giants’ first Monday night game since Nov. 22, 2021, and their first in MetLife Stadium since Nov. 2, 2020. Their opponent in each of those games was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
