Frankly, whoever prevails in this rivalry should take the division. The Giants’ defense is a thin shell of its old quarterback-destroying self, but New York still has the division’s best quarterback in the two-minute drill and an impressive track record in crunch-time games.
Look for New York to bring the heat and try to expose the Cowboys’ patchwork offensive line in Week 1. When possession changes hands, expect a lot of forceful, up-the-gut rushing. Expect it to be characteristically ugly, but expect it to clue you in to the real divisional favorite.
