Can Jones do enough to help balance out the run game to stabilize the offensive game plan, to allow the Giants to stay on the field allowing the defense to rest and be ready to control the Cowboys offense.
The defense is going to have a major impact in this football game on both sides. Micah Parsons has recorded four sacks in his first two games of the 2022 season for the Cowboys. Rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux and Azeez Ojulari are expected to make their season debut for the New York Giants on Monday night football.
Dallas had much higher expectations heading into this season than New York did. They are both trying to keep pace in the NFC East with the Philadelphia Eagles. This football game is likely to be low scoring than high scoring. The big plays will be limited in this football game and field position and special teams will matter.
