Dallas Cowboys Game Day News Links

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

The Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants today. Here is a roundup of some articles of interest to Cowboys fans to get ready for a crucial game.

The question today is whether the Dallas Cowboys can manage a win against the New York Giants. Most of the football world would say no. Which is exactly what they said before the Cowboys posted their opening day victory over the Giants at Met Life Stadium.

The answer will be known soon. In the meantime, here is a look at some articles from around the media about the game.

For any tailgaters headed to Cowboys Stadium for the 3:15 CDT kickoff, it should be a beautiful fall afternoon. The high should be in the mid sixties under sunny skies, a great day to fire up some grills.

Now, for those of you who say, "No way Staubach would say something like that!" - well, he didn't. He praised Eli, but the "genius" placed in the headline, with no concern for generating page views, I am sure, was strictly an invention of a clearly unbiased and objective member of the mainstream American media. I can't imagine why they are so poorly regarded nowadays.
