NFL Picks – Cowboys at Giants

This is one of the most heated rivalries in the NFL.  Two old NFC East foes in the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants going at it in week one.  There has been trash talk from Giants head coach Ben McAdoo which will add fuel to the fire but not that it’s necessary.

Some if directed at Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot who is not suspended and will look to have a huge game. As for the Giants star offensive player Odell Beckham Jr., it’s not known if he’ll play yet and it be a game time decision.

But this game will be decided by the quarterbacks.  The Giants Eli Manning has some nice targets even with Odell Beckham and will look to attack the Cowboys secondary.  The Cowboys Dak Prescott is looking to prove that his outstanding rookie season was not a fluke.

I think Prescott has the advantage.  Also, the Cowboys won the NFC East last year, but after being swept by the Giants, the Cowboys still have something to prove.  This will a back and forth close game as most division games are.  But Dak Prescott will lead the Cowboys to the win.
