The struggling Dallas Cowboys face off with the streaking New York Giants on Monday Night Football in week 7. The Cowboys, who had high expectations of playing in the Super Bowl at their home stadium, find themselves with a record of 1-4.

The Cowboys will have a tough time against the NFC’s best defense fueled by a defensive line that features a resurgent Osi Umenyiora, who has 7 sacks and 6 forced fumbles .

The Cowboys will be ready to play in hopes of avenging their two losses to the Giants last year, but their undisciplined play will be their downfall tomorrow night. The Cowboys are in the top 5 in both offense and defense, but their 62 penalties have proved too much to overcome.

The 4-2 Giants have looked great as of late. Thier defense looks like the unit that played in the Super Bowl 3 years ago; causing turnovers and wreaking havoc on the quarterback. The offense features Ahmad Bradshaw who can catch passes and carve up the defense with the run. Brandon Jacobs is running the ball furiously at the goal line. And let’s not forget that trio of wide receivers; Nicks, Smith, and Manningham who Manning will have fun with against the Cowboys secondary.

This game will be a shootout. Both teams will rely heavily on the passing game, but the team that establishes the run will end up winning. I say Giants win 31-28
