So you think it can’t get any worse for the 3-8 Giants? Just imagine if they fall to the Jaguars (1-10) in Jacksonville on Sunday.
The Giants had just five QB hits (including two sacks) and, more importantly, gave Tony Romo WAY too much time to operate in the second half.
The Giants ought to be confident while hosting Dallas Cowboys (7-3) on Sunday night — if only because they played Dallas to a virtual draw in Week 7.

Let’s make this as simple as possible. The Cowboys out-rushed the Giants, 156 to 104. You can start there, because everything else is secondary.
The front seven — specifically LBs Jameel McClain, Jon Beason and Jacquian Williams — must hold their ground and fill those rushing lanes in order to contain DeMarco Murray.
A total collapse would have been tough enough for the Giants to swallow. But to do so against a division rival, and lose WR Victor Cruz for the season with a torn patellar tendon on top of it?
We know that rewarding Odell Beckham in his NFL debut might be the thing to do. But we try to go a bit deeper here whenever possible.
They hit the switch during Wednesday’s practice. Everybody on the 53-man roster participated and the players discovered their swagger as they prepared for Sunday’s home meeting with the Falcons.
