Think the Giants show up big tonight

EJJ : 11/4/2019 12:59 pm
Remember Thursday nights Nationally televised game against the Pats a few weeks ago.
NYG showed up against insurmountable odds. The final score was a blow out loss but watching the game the team played hard and was in it till the 4th.
The Giants have a few things going for themselves tonight besides being the Home team.
Dallas hasn't played against D Jones yet. Danny Dimes with his mobility and accuracy can be a difference maker if he can control the turn overs. D Slaton and Golden Tate didn't play in the fist game Dallas hasn't delt with them yet. Slayton can stretch the D. Barkley is due to take a few to the house on National TV as well as Engram who Dallas had a hard time with in the first meeting.
The D is improved since the first game of the season especially Baker. With the addition of Williams on the line they should be able to have a few 3 and outs........one can dream lol
Seriously Peppers has been better playing a more LB role' If they can keep Haley and Bethea OFF THE FIELD!!!!
We have a shot!!
I'll have

Haley and Bethea dont play. It's a win in my eyes. I never want to see them guys in uniform again.

The only question in my mind...  
BamaBlue : 11/4/2019 1:10 pm : link
will there be more Cowboys fans in the stands than Giants fans?
Iím an OPTIMIST by nature  
5BowlsSoon : 11/4/2019 1:12 pm : link
But honestly, I donít know how we can cover these guys. I know Baker has improved but we still have Haleyand Bethea in coverage, and as I recall, even JJ was torched the first time. Third and ďlongĒ still looks foreboding to me. If we couldnít stop Stafford, why would I think we could cover these guys?

And on offense, I was more hopeful with Shepard playing, but now that he is not, Iím not feeling as hopeful.

My expectation is that we be competitive for at least for 3 quarters. But Iím hopeful we can not only compete for 4 quarters but maybe even win.

But I also want Shurmur out this offseason. Hard to reconcile the two.
Stop Zeke and make Dak throw  
averagejoe : 11/4/2019 1:21 pm : link
Everybody has the same game plan vs Dallas. Problem is, Dak will look like Otto Graham throwing against our LB's and DB's. Probably better to let Zeke kill us 5yds at a time. I hope we give them a game but I'm not expecting it.
This is a game where the Giants would show up big ...if they had a

I'm sure they will show up...

BigBlue in Keys : 11/4/2019 1:33 pm : link
I've had the same feeling the last few days, call me crazy but feels like a trap game for Dallas. Hoping the D plays more inspired, we get the benefit of terrible officiating, and a lucky bounce or 2.

F*** I hate Dallas
I feel good about this game.  
Reale01 : 11/4/2019 1:38 pm : link
No rational reason. Just think that the way the trade deadline went down may put a little juice into the team. Realistically speaking, this team is not playing for much this year. This is their superbowl.

Same. Iíve had this feeling for days and canít shake it.

I think Daniel Jones has a memorable game that people will look back on like the Eli game against the Broncos with the Toomer TD in the final minute.

The legend of dimes grows.
We have to stop turning

The defense showed up in NE on Thursday night.  
NoPeanutz : 11/4/2019 1:53 pm : link
The offense never got out of bed. In fact, they gave up 7 points.
Dallas has a top 5 roster.  
jogo1 : 11/4/2019 1:53 pm : link
Jones and Barkley need monster games to keep this one close.
The defense let Dak have a perfect passer rating  
Bill L : 11/4/2019 1:58 pm : link
Despite having a less mobile QB (so less need to watch him), Barkley had his (I believe) best game of the season. No Tate or Slayton but we did have Shep. It was also a national game.

I'm hopeful but not optimistic.
The question should be

joe48 : 11/4/2019 2:17 pm : link
If we can run the ball consistently like other teams have against Dallas we have a chance. We will also need a clean game to compete. Dak will make mistakes if he is playing from behind.

I think the Giants win this one. Call me crazy. Don't care. And I have an even sneakier suspicion they shock some people and win convincingly.
I think it's trap game for the Giants

Tampa comes to mind. In that game, the offense stalled late in the 4th quarter giving Tampa an opportunity to win the game with a field goal. Enter the keystone kops defense. The defense couldn't stop them and Winston got them into chip-shot field goal range....

Opinion. He stinks.
One nitpick with the OP  
mikeinbloomfield : 11/4/2019 3:16 pm : link
Daniel Jones did play against the Cowboys and fumbled. If your point is that Dallas doesn't have a ton of film on him, that's probably true.

But if we're saying an interior lineman that didn't light it up when he was on the Jets and a linebacker who couldn't play in Tampa Bay are our difference makers, we're in bigger trouble than I thought.


One of these teams is still alive in the playoff hunt and that means a lot. I can't see the Giants pulling this one out.
When was the last time the Giants showed up on national tv?

Don't hold your breath. Dallas is going to have to make a lot of mistakes and play like they played against the Jets for us to have a shot.

Barkley doesn't look close to 100% and I have zero faith in our tackles tonight. Danny is gonna have at least 2 fumbles and we lose by 17.

It will start out half and half, but if the Cowboys get ahead then the ratio will get a lot worse. I always went to night games, and the prime time Dallas games are the ones I dreaded the most because of their front running, idiotic fans. They couldn't name an offensive lineman on their own team, they just knew to yell when they scored a touchdown.

And going to games at night on Mondays sucks. Rushing home from work, getting there in rush hour traffic, then getting home after midnight, I don't really blame anyone for selling them, although I wished they at least tried to sell them to Giants fans.

With all the youth on the team you could MAYBE make excuses for the first 5 games . BUT the way we played vs. Cards and Detriot were the litmus test for me.

Cows are a very good team and have what seems to be better coaching than we do. This will be a tough one. Would be amazing to see us put a full 60 minutes together and beat them but it will be tough.
Dak has improved over the years. Now, he's a pretty good qb

JonC : 11/5/2019 10:12 am : link
but in character for this team they didn't finish anything and let it slip it away. The missed extra point, not finishing drives, and then the disastrous final minute of the first half sealed their doom.
The team showed up...  
Metnut : 11/5/2019 10:19 am : link
as they've done for most games this year. I thought there was effort and passion there. The problem is that they aren't talented enough, or smart/coached well enough for the effort to bring victories against most teams.
