The Dallas Cowboys are a whopping -17.5 favorite for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Fans are hoping Dak Prescott and Co. have this one wrapped up at halftime, and rightfully so considering the Giants are starting rookie undrafted free agent Tommy DeVito at quarterback.
There's still eight games left, but the Giants' season is all but over. They're 2-7 and have the worst point differential in the NFL at -116. To add injury to insult, they lost starting QB Daniel Jones for the season last week with a torn ACL.
It's all falling apart for the fighting Brian Daboll's. While New York's head coach will likely throw the kitchen sink at the Cowboys to try and score an upset, it's equally likely that the G-Men lie down if Dallas jumps in front early.
As nearly three-touchdown favorites, this one could get ugly. Incredibly, Prescott dressed for a potential beatdown by donning an all-black suit for the game.
Dare we say Prescott is dressed for a Giants funeral?

Prescott likely wasn't trying to send a message with his pregame outfit. The two-time Pro Bowler knows better than to stir up controversy.
But with the Cowboys a significant favorite against a Giants team that might be the worst in the league, you can understand why the funeral narrative has made the rounds on social media. It's all fun and games, and right now the Giants are one of the punchlines of the NFL. That's all there is to it, but Prescott and Co. can't take afford to take their rivals lightly.
That's exactly what happened in Week 3 against the Cardinals. The Cowboys never got off the plane and Arizona won pretty comfortably at home.
With Prescott playing some of the best football of his career, though, it's widely expected that Dallas coasts to a victory on Sunday. He deserved a win against the Eagles last week and his cold pregame outfit shows he means business once again.
Including Sunday, four of the Cowboys next five games are at home. Dating back to last season, Dallas has won 11 straight games at home. It's the longest active win streak in the NFL. Look for Prescott to play a big role in making it 12 in a row while sending the tailspinning Giants to 2-8 in the process.
