Cowboys vs. Giants Key Stats

Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are looking to be one of the best offensive teams in the entire sport and have the ability to do just that. Last season, they were able to average 26.8 points (fourth in NFL) and 354.8 total yards per game (10th in NFL). They have a little bit of changes as they released offensive coordinator Kellen Moore after the postseason and also got rid of running back Ezekiel Elliott, guard Connor McGovern, tight end Dalton Shultz and wide receiver Noah Brown. If quarterback Dak Prescott can prove he is a top-tier quarterback, this will be a great sign for the Cowboys future.

The defense of the Dallas Cowboys did very well in 2022 as they were sixth in points allowed (19.7) and fifth in opponent red zone touchdown percentage (50%). They were able to draft nose tackle Mazi Smith in the first round of the draft as well as acquire nose tackle Jonathan hankins and cornerback Stephon Gilmore. This defense can be a legitimate force with guys like Micah Parsons as well dominating the trenches and in coverage. 

New York Giants

The New York Giants are entering Year 2 of Brian Daboll as the head coach. This team added some talent as they drafted center John Michael Schmitz Jr and wide receiver Jalin Hyatt as well as trade for tight end Darren Waller. This offense was average last season with 21.2 points on 333.4 total yards. Quarterback Daniel Jones limited mistakes and if he can step up and continue showing improvement while utilizing running back Saquon Barkley, this team can do well. 

Their defense struggled last season and was the weakest part as they ranked 22nd in points per game given up (22.8) and 25th in yards per game allowed (359.8). They made some strides on this side of the ball during the offseason as they drafted cornerbacks Deonte Banks and Tre Hawkins III as well as traded for linebacker Isaiah Simmons. This Giants team has considerably more talent on the defensive side of the football and defensive coordinator Wink Martindale should be ready to attack.
