Second place in the NFC East standings is up for grabs when the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants as part of the 2022 NFL Thanksgiving Day schedule. The rivals will enter the Thanksgiving NFL 2022 game with identical 7-3 records, although Dallas posted a 23-16 victory at New York in Week 3. The Cowboys bounced back from a deflating overtime loss at Green Bay with a convincing 40-3 triumph at Minnesota last week, ending the Vikings' seven-game winning streak. Meanwhile, the Giants are coming off their second defeat in three contests, a 31-18 home setback against Detroit. Dallas rolled to a 30-3 victory in its only previous Thanksgiving meeting with New York in 1992.

Why the Cowboys can cover
After losing his first two career starts against New York, Dak Prescott has been outstanding in the series. The 29-year-old quarterback has led Dallas to victory in his last nine outings versus the division-rival, throwing 20 touchdown passes and only three interceptions during the streak. Prescott is looking to become the first signal-caller to win 10 straight starts against the Giants since Roger Staubach reeled off 11 consecutive victories from 1974-79.
The Cowboys lead the NFL with 42 sacks and linebacker Micah Parsons has notched 10 to rank third in the league. Dallas registered five sacks in its first meeting with New York this season, with DeMarcus Lawrence, who has recorded one in each of his last three contests, posting three. The Cowboys' defense also is first in the NFL against the pass, allowing an average of 174.5 yards, and has permitted a league-low 16.7 points per game. See which team to pick here.
Why the Giants can cover
Daniel Jones is coming off one of the most productive passing performances of his career, as he threw for 341 yards in last Sunday's 31-18 loss to Detroit. It was the seventh 300-yard outing of the 25-year-old's career and first since Week 4 of last season, when he set a career-high with 402 yards at New Orleans. Jones also ran for 50 yards against the Lions and gained 79 on the ground in the first meeting with the Cowboys this year.
Saquon Barkley led the Giants with 81 rushing yards in the Week 3 loss to Dallas and scored the team's lone touchdown. The 25-year-old was held to a season-low 22 yards on 15 carries last week, but is second in the NFL with 953 and leads the league with 1,163 scrimmage yards. Barkley has registered at least 105 scrimmage yards in three of his four road games this season and posted two of his four 100-yard rushing performances away from home. See which team to pick here.
