As the Dallas Cowboys continue their fall from glory, all ESPN analysts and experts have given the team zero chance to beat the rival Giants in tomorrow afternoon’s game.
Of the eight analysts, accuscore predition, and fan picks, the Giants were selected to defeat Dallas every time.
Sure, Dallas is struggling and Jason Garrett will enter the game for the first time as a head coach, but it seems like people are sleeping on the Cowboys. Garrett will bring a renewed sense of focus and intensity to the ailing Dallas squad. Will he really throw up a stinker of a game in his first appearance?
You also have to believe that the players will be giving this game their all. They were embarrassed at home just three weeks ago by New York, and this is the team that knocked their starting quarterback out for eight weeks. As if a 1-7 record wasn’t enough motivation, there is the underlying theme of redemption.
It’s surprising that not one single analyst picked Dallas to earn the W, but maybe it is a blessing. This team felt entitled to start the season and had way too much hype to live up to. Perhaps the underdog role will be just what this team needs to light a fire under them.
