Giants vs. Cowboys Details
Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants
Even though Texas and New York aren’t very close to each other, the Giants and Cowboys have one of the most contentious division rivalries in the NFL. The two teams have played against each other since Dallas came into the league for the 1960 season. The edge in the rivalry has gone back and forth to both teams over the years. The Giants won most of their games against Dallas in the early 60s, but the Cowboys finished the decade with a 9-6-2 record against New York. The 1970s were a low point in the Giants’ history, and Dallas put up a 17-3 record against them over the decade. It’s been much closer since then, however, as both teams have been consistent playoff competitors.
The Cowboys have won five Super Bowl titles and eight NFC Championships. The Cowboys’ young players have been the key to the team’s recent success. Long-time quarterback Tony Romo gave went down with an injury before the start of the 2016 season, and the Cowboys were forced to go with untested rookie Dak Prescott as their starter. Prescott performed better than anyone could have hoped: after a loss to the Giants in his first career start, Prescott led the Cowboys on an 11 game winning streak. Dallas finished with a 13-3 record and won the NFC East. Prescott won the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award and is set to be the Cowboys’ starting QB for the foreseeable future. Promising running back Ezekiel Elliott also played his rookie year for Dallas in 2016 and finished second in Rookie of the Year voting.
Eli Manning has been the quarterback in New York since he was a first overall pick in 2004 (he was drafted by the Chargers, who quickly traded him to the Giants). Manning has led the Giants to two Super Bowl Championships. He has played his entire career with the Giants, and New York has been a contender in the NFC East for most of Manning’s time with the team. As Manning gets closer to the end of his career, however, the Giants will need to look for options to replace their franchise quarterback.
Historic Giants vs. Cowboys Games
2007-2008 Divisional Playoff Upset: The Giants and Cowboys, despite their long rivalry, have only played against each other in one playoff game. That game came in the Divisional Round after the 2007 season. The Cowboys were the number one seed, had won the NFC East, and were the favorite in the game over the wild card Giants. The Giants scored early in the game and had a 21-17 lead in the fourth quarter. An interception on Dallas’ last drive sealed the win for New York. The Giants moved on and eventually pulled off an even bigger upset: they beat the undefeated Patriots to win the Super Bowl later in the postseason.
Almost a Playoff Game: The Giants and Cowboys had identical records going into the last game of the 2011 season. The result was a storybook finish: Dallas and New York played each other with a NFC East title and a trip to the playoffs on the line. Giants quarterback Eli Manning lived up to his reputation a clutch player--he had three touchdown passes in the game. Tony Romo and the Cowboys weren’t able to score until the second half, and their 14 unanswered points weren’t enough to complete the comeback. The Giants won 31-14 and punched their ticket into the playoffs. The Giants rode their momentum all the way to a win in Super Bowl XLVI.
