The highlight game of Week 17 in the NFL features a NFC East title championship showdown between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.
Because of a Buddy Ryan postseason curse that was manifested through his son Rex's New York Jets, the Eagles' divisional title chances ended with the Giants 29-14 victory over Ryan's team in last Sunday's city championship game. With our beloved Birds out of the picture, we are left with two other mediocre teams battling it out for this year's NFC East title. The 8-7 Cowboys come in with just one victory in their last four games, while the 8-7 Giants stumble into this game with a 2-5 record over the second half of the season.
I have the Giants winning this game going away, but as I said numerous times before, it really does not matter which team wins on Sunday as they will be a guaranteed one-and-done in the playoffs.
Below is a link to my complete preview and prediction for Sunday's game as originally posted on Bang the Book
