There's too much negative sentiment over the Giants' loss in Dallas on Sunday night, so I'm going to do my best Allie Sherman and point out some positives...

The sting of Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys isn't going to go away anytime soon. The staples of Giants football are strong coaching, good quarterback?play and a relentless pass rush. They had none of that against?Dallas on Sunday, but should still have come away with a win.

The game came down to one play for the Giants' offense. With 1:43 remaining, the Giants had everything going in their favor: the score (23-20), the ball (third and goal on the Dallas 1) and the ability to run down the clock in the process of putting up more points because the Cowboys had just used their final timeout.

The Giants face the Cowboys Sunday night at MetLife Stadium in a game the country hopes will be a competitive one. It usually is. The Cowboys have won the past three, but the games have been close. The Cowboys won 31-21 in Week 7, but the previous three contests were decided by five points or less.

The first game between these two teams on Oct. 19 drew 27 million viewers, the sixth most-watched program on American television this season.

The Giants know what it's like to be in free fall, having lost six in a row to start the 2013 season. After a 3-2 start this year, five consecutive losses has them in free fall again. Head coach Tom Coughlin, who never surrenders, never gives up the ship was asked to compare last year's skein to this year's:

"Keep fighting, keep fighting, keep fighting, that is all it takes, one game at a time, bounce back. Again, it is about all of those eyes that look at me on Wednesday morning, I am thinking about them, quite frankly, trying to bring them through the disappointment toward the next opponent."

This game could be one of those hidden land mines like last week's whitewashing at the hands of the Eagles. No one saw it coming. Everyone to a man felt the Giants would either win the game or put up a lot of points in a close loss. This week, the Cowboys are flying high and appear to be unbeatable. No one is buying that the Giants can hang with Dallas this afternoon. The betting line, which opened at Cowboys -4, has ballooned to 6 1/2.

So, can the Giants win this game? Yes, they can. Consider this...

The Giants will be down in Dallas this Sunday to face the Cowboys and their top-ranked rushing game, featuring RB DeMarco Murray who leads the NFL in rushing with 785 yards -- a full 243 yards more than the next highest rusher (Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell (542)).

Much has to do with Murray's health but a great deal of credit for their success in the run game is going to the offensive line, currently considered the league's best. The Cowboys are averaging 160.1 YPG on the ground, tops in the NFL and are third in time of possession (33:51 minutes per game) and first in third-down conversion percentage and first downs per game.

The Cowboys have been gradually building their offensive line over the past few seasons. The group of LT Tyron Smith, LG Ronald Leary, C Travis Frederick, RG Zack Martin and RT Doug Free have become the talk of the NFL.

One thing you must do when handicapping NFC East divisional games is ignore the standings. These teams do not concern themselves as much with trends as they do with history. Any team can win any of these games. It's just the law of the land.

Last week, the Giants went into Philadelphia riding high, scoring 30 or more points three straight weeks. The Eagles (now 5-1) shut them out and shut them down cold.

This week, the Giants (3-3) drag their tails into Dallas to play the 5-1 Cowboys, who are coming off a convincing win over the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks in Seattle. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett knows not to be fooled by the Giants' recent misstep in Philly.

Week 16 was the complete microcosm of my season of picking. Let?s look at the games one-by-one.

I went with the Saints on the road over the Panthers, and until the last drive, I was sitting pretty. But of course, Cam Newton hits former Giant Domenik Hixon for a touchdown, which allows Carolina to cover the spread.

Then I take a gamble and bet against the Seahawks at home with the Cardinals. I was really just expecting the Cards to cover the 10.5-point spread, and not only did they do that, but they wound up winning the game. Go figure.

?We won?t have too much trouble scoring touchdowns against one of the worst defenses in the league,? the Giants? offense must have thought to itself, heading into Sunday?s contest.

Unfortunately that wasn?t the case, as settling for field goals on two early trips into the red zone ultimately sealed Big Blue?s fate in a 24-21 loss to the Cowboys.

Sure, the weather was a factor in this one, but Tony Romo didn?t look like he had too much trouble throwing the ball on that final drive. It?s no excuse.

The Dallas Cowboys came in here with the league's worst defense and all week the Giants were looking forward to taking full advantage of that fact. We're still waiting. The Giants could only muster two field goals in the first half despite running the ball for 108 yards between Andre Brown and Brandon Jacobs.

Turnovers, which killed the Giants in their first meeting with Dallas, have reared their ugly head again. Victor Cruz was stripped of the ball by Dallas DB Orlando Scandrick. The ball was scooped up by Jeff Heath an taken to the house for a 7-0 Dallas lead.

A 10-play, 74-yard drive that stalled on the Dallas 3. Josh Brown hit a 21-yard FG to narrow the score to 7-3.

Some factoids you may find interesting....

Giants' QB Eli Manning will be starting his 145th consecutive game today, the third highest number for a QB in NFL history. Brett Favre holds the record with a whopping 297 ( for three teams from 1992-2010) and brother Peyton's 208 (Indianapolis, 1998-2010).

Eli's streak is currently second among active players. Redskins' LB London Fletcher has started in 209 consecutive games and has played in 250 straight games.

Is this week's game vs Dallas a must-win for the Giants?

Pretty silly question if you ask me. After starting the season at 0-6, limiting their maximum win total to 10, every game has become a must-win. Of course the Giants getting to ten wins would be nothing short of a miracle and something that's never been done in the history of the league.

But nothing is impossible as long as there is opportunity. And the Giants have been making the most out of their opportunities the past four games. If they have any designs on creating history, they must win Sunday.

The Giants are getting ready to face the Cowboys tomorrow with two major life points weighing in their favor: weather and health.

For the second straight day, the Giants had all 53 players out on the field and practicing. CB Corey Webster (groin, ankle) will be out tomorrow. RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) and WR Hakeem Nicks (abdomen) are listed as questionable but will likely dress.

RB John Conner (hip), CB Trumaine McBride (hip), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), CB Terrell Thomas (knee) are all probable and are expected to play.

This weekend is the Giants? Super Bowl, and offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride met the media Thursday to discuss this all important matchup.

Big Blue?s offense has shown some decent signs of life the past few weeks, but the unit still has not hit its stride.

In the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys, Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle all racked up 100-plus yards receiving, so Eli Manning is hoping he can spread the ball around on the Cowboys? depleted secondary.

Each week, I will be taking a look at the Giants? media notes to pull out some interesting facts about the upcoming opponent.

In Week 12, the Giants (4-6) host the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) in a game that has huge implications for both squads.

The Cowboys won the Week 1 matchup 36-31 in Dallas, so the Giants would need this win to even the head-to-head matchups in case that factors into a playoff tiebreaker.

The Giants? undefeated streak at the new Cowboys Stadium eventually had to come to an end, but no one thought it would have ended in this fashion.

The Giants turned the ball over six times en route to an extremely frustrating 36-31 loss Sunday night to the Cowboys. Dallas scored 17 points off Giants? turnovers.

For the offense in the preseason, the two main questions involved running back David Wilson adapting to a starting role and the offensive line trying to work through a multitude of injuries.

Many have been asking this question: How were the Cowboys able to run three plays in the final ten seconds of Sunday's game?

Tom Coughlin himself has been left to wonder......"I don?t have any answer for you, other than the fact that they had two plays in the end zone that are going to take more than four seconds apiece. I don?t have any other formula than that. You have to speculate on the rest of that......Then there?s unmentioned yesterday, the longest 10 seconds I?ve ever been around. They got three plays in 10 seconds. Two of which went to the end zone. Seems like a little much to me. We?ll have to see if we can get some kind of response from the league on that."

Maybe the real question should be: How can a team run 9 plays in 44 seconds? Well, eight of those plays were passes. The other was a spike to stop the clock. Dallas managed the time perfectly....or did they?

In the old days before instant replay, the Dallas Cowboys would have walked out of Cowboys Stadium as winners yesterday.

But technology and science has changed the way we view and manage everything we do in life. Sometimes it works for you. Sometimes against you. Today, the Giants are happy for the technological advances the game of football has embraced.

The big hands of Dez Bryant are part of what makes him one of the more dangerous wide receivers in the NFL, and yet that same physical gift cost the Dallas Cowboys a victory by the slimmest of margins on Sunday.

With ten just seconds left, one of Bryant?s large mitts held on to a desperation 37-yard heave from quarterback Tony Romo, but the other was a little too big to keep in bounds, as Bryant?s fingertips ever so slightly touched the white paint beyond the back of the blue end zone.

When a team scores one offensive touchdown, it usually loses. But the Giants relied on five field goals from Lawrence Tynes and a Jason Pierre-Paul interception return for a touchdown to barely hang on in their 29-24 victory against the Cowboys.

For most of the game, the Giants had a weak rushing attack, and Eli Manning was not his traditional self in Cowboys Stadium.

After the 56-yard Rueben Randle catch on the opening drive, it almost seemed as if the Giants would just steam roll the Cowboys, playing without middle linebacker Sean Lee. But that drive only yielded a field goal.

It went down to the final second, but the Giants somehow hung on for a 29-24 victory after leading this game 23-0.

The defense collectively had a rough day, as they allowed Tony Romo to make big plays all over the field, throwing for 437 yards. Three Dallas receivers ? Miles Austin, Jason Witten and Dez Bryant ? each had over 100 yards receiving on the day.

But Stevie Brown?s effort helped the Giants preserve the victory. Brown picked off two passes and recovered a fumble. He?s now second in the NFL in interceptions with five.

The game was not an aesthetically pleasing one by any stretch. But it was exciting.

The Giants scored the first 23 points. The Cowboys scored the next 24. The Giants woke back up in the fourth quarter and took a 29-24 lead with 3:31 left.

Each team made more than their share of errors. Dallas made errors of commission, while the Giants made ones of omission. The Giants made one less, however, in what seemed to be the longest non-overtime game in the history of the NFL.

The Giants began the week 2-point underdogs in Dallas and are currently 2-point favorites. The injuries to LB Sean Lee, RB DeMarco Murray, C Phil Costa and RB Felix Jones combined with the Giants' success at Cowboys Stadium is seen as the reason for the shift. The over/under is 47 1/2.

Jim Mancari: The Giants are 3-0 in the "House that Jerry (Jones) Built," so there's really no reason to believe that the struggling Cowboys will take down the G-Men. Eli Manning is known for historically playing well on the road, and Cowboys Stadium has been one of his favorite venues production-wise. Big Blue is coming off a tough divisional game and will have another one this week, but if the recent past repeats itself, the Giants will continue to have the Cowboys' number. Though Tony Romo is coming off a week in which he played slightly better, running back DeMarco Murray is unlikely to suit up due to a strained left foot. The Cowboys's defense has been good against the pass but mediocre against the run. You want the ball more, Ahmad Bradshaw. Now is your time to have another big rushing day. Giants 27, Cowboys 17

Kel Dansby: The Giants are due for a let down performance, but it wont happen this weekend in Dallas. Jerry World has become "The House that Eli built" and Eli will put forth his best performance of the year. I see the defense forcing 3 Tony Romo turnovers and the Giants winning comfortably. To be more specific the Cowboys will go up 13-3 in the first quarter and the giants will score 17 unanswered points to take a 20-13 halftime lead. The Giants defense will take it from there and hold the Cowboys to 7 second half points. Giants 34, Cowboys 20

Sam Spiegelman: These are two teams that have gone off in opposite directions since they last met. Eli Manning is a front runner for MVP honors midway through the season and the Giants' defense is beginning to regain its form. Dallas has a talented secondary and Demarcus Ware's talents are obvious, but the Giants' receivers and offensive line are strengths. I expect Manning and Co. to make ammends for their Week 1 loss in a convincing win. Giants 35, Cowboys 20?

The Giants and Cowboys are set to face off in their second showdown of the season on Sunday.

For the G-Men, it's a chance to get revenge for Jerry Jones' comments following his Cowboys' win in the season opener and extend their lead in the NFC East. A win would situate Big Blue at 6-2 and potentially three games better than the runner-up.

For the Boys, it's an opportunity to sweep the series against New York for the first time since 2007 and make ground on the division-leading Giants. Both Dallas and Philadelphia are sitting at 3-3, with the Eagles facing a tough one vs. Atlanta.

With all of Eli Manning?s recent success, we sometimes forget that Manning?s career as a Giant got off to an extremely slow start.

Manning lost his first six career starts in 2004, but on the final week of the season, he led the Giants to a 28-24 home win over the Dallas Cowboys for his first career victory.

Maybe that win gave Eli a confidence boost, because he?s played historically well against the Cowboys in his career.

Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones is "softening" his preseason pledge to 'kick the Giants' ass' when they come to Dallas this season, now that several of his key players have been lost to injury...

"Against this team, [regarded] by many as arguably the best team in the NFL, we wanted all hands on deck," Jones said Wednesday as per Charean Williams of the Star-Telegram. "It is disappointing not to have two players of that caliber. I've said all along I think this team has an opportunity to be a contender, but the one exception that I made was ... sitting as we're sitting right now, health-wise, injury can make a difference and does in the NFL. It's been my experience when you do have a situation like this, others will step up. Others on the field at different positions will compensate."

No one ever gives the Giants a break for losing key players.Tom Coughlin?never uses injuries as an excuse and his players never blame losing or poor play or in cases where they are missing key players.
