This division is yet horrible again though They battle the eagles for sole possession of first place next week. Donít really have a preference as the eagles are usually a little more dangerous as the season gets later

If forced to choose, Iíd root for Philly because the Giants get two shots at them, possibly with the offense at full strength. Not that itís likely to matter; but if you think the division might be bad enough for the Giants to contend, an Eagle win probably helps. I suppose the ideal outcome would be a tie.

I see what youíre saying but I actually disagree. Hereís why:

I have a hard time envisioning the Giants losing to Dallas and then somehow finishing ahead of Dallas when all is said and done. I think to have a chance at winning the division (and hence making the playoffs considering how competitive the NFC wild card race will undoubtedly be) the Giants absolutely need to beat the Cowboys at MetLife. No ifs ands buts about it.

So, assuming NYG beats Dallas, that leaves us tied with Dallas (since weíre 1 game back). Then, NYG have to at least split with Philly. I think itís highly unlikely we sweep Philly, but I think we can hope to beat them one of the 2 meetings. So assuming we split with Philly and beat Dallas from here on out, I think weíd rather Philly lose this coming Sunday while we beat the Cards and then a 1-1 split with Philly essentially leaves us tied with them. Then hopefully we benefit from having the easier schedule than Philly and we can finish ahead of them.

In other words Iíd rather hope to beat Dallas at home and then split with Philly as opposed to basically having to hope that we beat Dallas AND sweep Philly which is basically impossible. Because, again, if we lose to Dallas that automatically gives them the tie breaker over us and thereís no way weíre finishing with a better record than Dallas in that scenario. Beating Dallas and sweeping Phlly ainít gonna happen so letís approach this coming Sunday assuming weíre going to beat Dallas and split with Philly (hence I think weíd rather Dallas win). I think Dallas is also the worse team than Philly to be honest so I have no problem with them securing the 1 game lead in the division. Philly I could absolutely see going on a roll at some point in the season and if they do I want it to be too late in for them to get to 10 or 11 wins.
Dallas was hosed by the refs

in that Jets game.

Giants have to find a way to start beating the Cowboys and the Eagles.

They will never make the playoffs if they keep going 0-4 against those two teams.

Did you watch the cowboys last drive, several BOGUS PIs, so the refs screwed both sides equally.
I'm thinking..

Don't underestimate the impact of losing 4 straight too. Granted (IIRC) the Cowboys would have the bye week to mentally refocus (and lucky for us, likely get Smith/Collins healthy), but 4 straight losses would be tough to overcome.
I truly despise the cowturds, I hop ethe shegals poind their ass

on Sunday! Can't wait for that smug asshole Garrett to be fired!
Those stats don't mean Dallas dominated the game

and it was a fluke loss.

Total yards advantage was only 398 to 382.

Jets averaged 7.1 yards per play, which, for the year, would rank them first in the league.

Dallas only gained 5.3 yards per play. For the year, that would rank them 24th in the league. Giants have averaged 5.5 yards per play for the year.

Dallas got a lot of first downs where they didn't gain much more than required. And they settled for four field goal attempts, missing one.

The reason they settled for the FGs is that their offense wasn't good enough to score TDs and/or the Jets' defense was good enough to stop them.

Not a fluke.

Guys stop picking on Jason Garrett already.

He's a great coach. He deserves to coach the Cowboys forever.

Dallas never had a lead the entire game. So no the Jets beat them, despite the officials escorting Dallas down the field on their final possession. If Dallas had leads, or led all game, and lost on all sort of unforced errors or bad calls then you could make an argument for Dallas losing and the Jets not winning.

And two of those field goals were 50 and 62 yards. Not often you're connecting on a 50 and 60+(!!) yarder in the same game

Oh please tell us more about the Jets. Itís funny that you havenít powered since the Bills game week one but the Jets win one game and here you are again polluting this board with your nonsense. For the 1,000th time nobody gives a shit about the Jets here.

I think they should also make Dak the highest paid QB in the NFL.
