The New York Giants head to Texas this Sunday to face the Dallas Cowboys, beginning a stretch where they will play NFC East (Least?) teams in five of their next six games. They will do so, like they have in each of their first four games, as underdogs.

DraftKings Sportsbook lists the 0-4 Giants as 9.5-point underdogs against the 1-3 Cowboys. The disappointing Cowboys are a Week 2 Atlanta Falcons late-game meltdown from joining the Giants at 0-4.

The game will, of course, mark the return of Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett to Dallas, where he was head coach for 10 seasons before being fired at the end of the 2019 season.

Giants head coach Joe Judge knows this midseason stretch provides his winless team with an opportunity.

“Every game is important in the NFL. But I think it’s no secret when it comes to the NFL, it’s about your division to start with. We have to do a good job,” Judge said on Monday. “Obviously, we have five in the next six weeks division games, so we have to do a good job of coming out here and being ready to roll. It’s going to be tough games. It’s not going to be any easy opponents right here.”
