Looking back at Week 7, the Cowboys were entering the game against the Giants just two games back in NFC East and still had control of how their season was going to pan out. That all went out the window when Michael Boley and the Giants put Tony Romo out for 6-8 week and sent the Cowboys’ season into a downward spiral. The boys’ have played treacherous their last two weeks, getting blown out by both Jacksonville and Green Bay. Everyone knows the rest of the story.
Now entering Week 10, the Cowboys are coming into New Meadowlands Stadium with new head coach, Jason Garrett, looking to show some spark. With no where to go but up, the Cowboys are going to play hard this Sunday looking to prove to the rest of the league and GM, Jerry Jones, that they deserve some respect and can still compete this season in the NFL.

The bigger concern now is the winds at the Meadowlands.
The wind is always an issue when teams travel to New York. Interim head coach Jason Garrett spent four seasons as a backup quarterback with the Giants. Is there anything he can pass along?
As most of you know, New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith strained his pectoral muscle during practice Thursday and his status for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys is up in the air. Mario Manningham will obviously replace him in the starting lineup, but it will be tough to make up for his production. Smith has killed the Cowboys over the past two seasons. It looks like Ramses Barden will be the third receiver if Smith’s not ready to go.
IRVING, Texas – Defensive end Stephen Bowen said returning to the northeast to play any NFC East rival is always a big game for him. A native of Wheatley Heights, N.Y., Bowen has family members attending all of the road games up there against the Eagles, Giants and Redskins. But even the five-year veteran realized this game is even bigger than any before, on a personal level.
