The Dallas Cowboys are coming off their bye and looking like a very healthy and motivated football team. Tony Romo was able to play against the Jaguars in London two weeks ago and had a very good game, showing no ill effects from his fractured transverse process. With the extra rest he got over the bye he should be in good form. The Cowboys are fully healthy on offense, getting tackle Doug Free and guard Ronald Leary back for the Jacksonville game. The Cowboys will likely want to pound the ball with DeMarco Murray against a Giants defense that has struggled mightily this year. Once they establish the run, the Cowboys will then look to take their shots downfield as the defense is creeping up to the line of scrimmage.
The Cowboys defense is also healthy once again, only missing fourth corner Tyler Patmon. Defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford and middle linebacker Rolando McClain will both be back after sitting out the Jacksonville game. The Dallas defense has been one of the surprises of the season, they aren't spectacular, but they're solid and play with a tremendous amount of effort. Eli Manning will be looking for a bounce-back week against the Cowboys, but with the defense healthy and receiving reinforcements, it's going to be a tough game for the Giants offense, especially with a shaky offensive line.
