Eli good for at least one pick, according to ESPN Sim.

The following paragraphs show a summary from the Accuscore simulator that ESPN has, it runs about 10,000 simulations and has this to say:

Dallas is hitting on all cylinders right now and have a 60% chance of getting their second straight road win vs NFC East competition. While the Giants are sacking Romo multiple times, he is effective out of the pocket and is averaging over 270 yards and nearly 2 TDs per sim. The Giants are led by Brandon Jacobs who is running for over 5 ypc and 1 TD per sim. Eli Manning is averaging 1.3 interceptions per sim. If he can avoid interceptions the Giants win, but the chances of him doing that are low.

This should be a much closer game between two of the best teams in the NFC than the Scouts Inc. Advantage would indicate. The Giants should be very well rested and are playing at home, but their back seven is at a major disadvantage against the Cowboys' receiving corps and Dallas should get enough yardage on the ground to wear down New York's defensive line. Dallas also has a major special teams' advantage and should be able to get to Manning with some consistency. Dallas wins this big game on the road and asserts themselves as the top dog in the NFC East.

P.S. ESPN wants you to think this will be a game that the gints can win, notice their nfl page has a large "angry-looking" Eli as compared to a smaller "calm looking" Romo.  They also advertise the Madden simulation that says giants win; that sim has been predicting blowouts against the boys by the vikings, eagles, and now the giants.  I think this simulation is run once and that is what they post; hardly scientific.  Remember this rule when it comes to the media hyping a game: what is their history on the picks they make?  Answer: other than the patriots or the bears game, an overwhelming majority of the picks have been for dallas.  So regardless of what comes out of their mouth before the game the picks speak to their true thoughts.  As fans of the boys we need to let go of hoping for the media to show dallas respect, the team doesn't care so we shouldn't either.
