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.
New York ranks fourth in the NFL is scoring, averaging 29 points per game, and the No. 2 overall offense. Eli Manning has propelled the third-best passing attack, and recent triumphs have led to a 116 yard per game average on the ground.
Dallas' offense has not met expectations. The Boys own the 10th-best offense, but are averaging fewer than 19 points per game, ranked 24th in the NFL. After Week 1's impressive outing, DeMarco Murray became an afterthought and is now battling through injuries. Tony Romo still anchors the seventh-ranked passing attack.
Defensively, the Boys have the edge. Dallas' revamped secondary has moved them to the No. 4 defense, though this will be the team's first game without top linebacker Sean Less.
New York, on the other hand, has finally found its stride. The team has recorded nine sacks in the past two games. And after a rash of injuries, the secondary is beginning to regain health.
The well-storied rivalry between these two NFL powers dates back to 1960. The Boys and Giants have faced off 101 times, with New York holding a 44-28-3 edge.
Manning owns a 10-7 record v. his division nemesis, and his Giants have won five of their last seven.
As for a homefield advantage, the G-Men are 3-0 in the Boys' new stadium.
This is, of course, a homecoming for Giants tight end Martellus Bennett, who spent four years in Big D as Jason Witten's back-up. Bennett was drafted by the Boys in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M.
Defensive tackle Chris Canty was another draft choice of Dallas back in 2005. From 2005-08, Canty registered 10 sacks for the Boys.
Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware has always played up to the challenge against New York. Ware has 103 career tackles, four for losses, 13.5 sacks, 18 quarterback pressures and five forced fumbles. He sacked Manning twice back in September.
And of course, there's Jones' notorious trash talk. Haven't heard it by now? Following the Cowboys' Week 1 win, the Cowboys' owner said he would welcome the Giants back to Big D to "beat their asses."
