5.) The defense will hold the Cowboys to under 20 points

The Giants’ defense has been fantastic through four weeks, especially the free-agent signings. Both Blake Martinez and James Bradberry rank in the top 10 other positions in the NFL, and they will be an integral piece to the puzzle in week five against Dallas.

Nonetheless, the Cowboys currently rank third in points per game at 31.5. Through the air, they rank first with 407.8 yards per game. Holding down Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup will be extremely difficult, especially with Ryan Lewis slated to start at CB2 for the Giants.

We know that Bradberry will do his job and limit Cooper, but the remainder of the secondary is problematic, and the matchups simply are in favor of Dallas.

The key to stopping them is putting Prescott on the turf, and I think defensive coordinator Patrick Graham will dial-up some creative play calls to throw him off his game force low probability throws.
