Cowboys At Giants: NFL Week 10 Capsules

The Jason Garrett era in Dallas begins this week after being named the interim head coach of the Cowboys in the wake of Wade Phillips firing. Will the former offensive coordinator of the 'Boys be able to right the ship and at least guide his team back to respectability? Or will the Cowboys give up on him much like it seemed they did with Phillips. The first test is a tough one - a road date at the Meadowlands to take on the surging New York Giants. The good news, if there is any, is that the Cowboys should be able to get up for a big divisional road game against one of their most hated rivals. We'll see. Here's your Week 10 Game Capsule, replete with series history facts and figures, as well as up-to-date season stats for both squads.
