The football gods are not that benevolent, it seems. Jones' latest version of America's Team is sitting at the bottom of the NFC East right now at 1-4. Their pulse is weak and their breaths are sporadic. They will not get much help tonight from the visiting Giants, who have been nearly dominant the past three weeks.
Tonight, in front of an international TV audience, the Cowboys would make their earliest exit from postseason contention in recent memory with a loss. The Giants, on the other hand, could take control of the division with a victory.
