The Dallas Cowboys desperately need a win in Week 10. Last week, they failed to capitalize on several last-minute Philadelphia Eagles mistakes and it cost them a big win in the NFC East, making their path to the playoffs even more difficult.
What shouldn’t be difficult for the Cowboys on Sunday is playing the 2-7 New York Giants, an NFC East team that somehow keeps finding new ways to decline from week to week. With quarterback Daniel Jones out for the season with a torn ACL, the Giants are turning to undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito, who only became the No. 2 quarterback because Tyrod Taylor is out with a rib injury.
DeVito only played in two games and completed 17 of 27 throws for 174 yards, so the Giants went out and got a decent backup for him: NFL veteran Matt Barkley. If DeVito gets into trouble, expect to see Barkley running to the rescue.
If the Cowboys are still upset about the loss to the Eagles last week, they won’t care about the quarterback they face. They will be ready to eat them both alive.
