NFL Week 7: New York Giants (4-2) At Dallas Cowboys (1-4)

As bad as things undeniably are for the Dallas Cowboys through the first five games of the season, they can perhaps get their season back on track with a home victory on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants. The Cowboys haven't fared all that well against the Giants in recent years, but if there was ever a time for the Cowboys to put the past behind them and rise up in the moment, it's this week. Let's kick off our preview coverage for the Cowboys' do-or-die Week 7 matchup with some series notes as well as team stats for both teams. Stay tuned here and at Blogging the Boys throughout the week and weekend for more news, notes, analysis and fan conversation.
