14. Dallas Cowboys (12) (Play Monday Night)
The Dallas Cowboys were already facing plenty of pressure heading into their Monday night meeting with the New York Giants, but after the Philadelphia Eagles already defeated the Chicago Bears, but the pressure is now on a new level.
Not to mention, with some of the inconsistency from the Cowboys this season, the last thing Jason Garrett and company can afford is to end up on the wrong end of an upset against their division rivals, which could very well end up happening.
Despite Dallas winning with ease earlier in the year, New York is a completely different team this time around with Daniel Jones running the offense instead of Eli Manning.
The Giants may not be fully satisfied in the win department, but watching the rookie quarterback finish with four touchdown passes last week shows the Cowboys’ defense can’t afford to take a light approach in this one.
Otherwise, Dallas could look the team from before their last win over Philadelphia in which they were losers of three games in a row, which would increase the pressure even more heading into Week 10.
But since the Cowboys were able to earn a little extra rest before this game as a result of their bye week, maybe Dallas will be able to use this to their advantage to help take down New York.
