Cowboys - Giants Game Handicap

The 7-4 Dallas Cowboys visit the 7-4 New York Giants in the Meadowlands. Both of these team are playing playoff caliber - not to say perfect - ball. The winner get a big leg up on the NFC East title.

The teams are even at quarterback and tight end, although Jerry Shockey is a bigger feature in the Giants's offense. New York has the edge at running back, but the Cowboys are well ahead at wide receivers. I've heard coach John Thompson say "pick the jockey, not the horse" when it comes to picking these things. That gives a clear edge to Dallas coach Bill Parcells.

If this were a fantasy game, I would call it Cowboys by three.
