ANALYSIS: It's been an interesting week in the NFL as the spread has not been a factor in 15 of 16 games played thus far. Despite Dallas opening as a 3-point underdog and that line falling to what basically amounts to a pick 'em, there's not a hesitancy to go with the Cowboys here. Why? Primarily because Dallas has the best single unit on the field: its defense. Other than Saquon Barkley, Giants' playmakers are not necessarily concerning. The Cowboys, meanwhile, still have Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard and CeeDee Lamb even with Michael Gallup and Dalton Schultz out. Cooper Rush should play well enough to lead a Dallas team that beat New York by a combined 65-26 last season and has won nine of the last 10 meetings since 2017.
