With a victory over the Panthers in Carolina last Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys stayed within a game of the New York Giants in the NFC East, but the road isn’t about to get any easier for Dallas.
At 3-3, the Cowboys will welcome the reigning Super Bowl Champion Giants to Cowboys Stadium for a week eight match-up on Sunday--and it’s worth noting that New York has never lost at the venue; week nine will see Dallas travel to Atlanta for a Sunday night match-up with the last remaining undefeated team in football.
In week ten, the Cowboys will face the Eagles in Philly, and though Andy Reid’s squad are playing .500 ball on the year, it’s (a) A rivalry game and (b) In one of the more hostile environments in all of football. Which is to say, it won’t be an easy one.
“We’ve got a tough stretch coming up,” said Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, per ESPN Dallas. “We know what New York is like, how good a game that is. We’ve got to clean it up and get better. Three and three through six games, we know what lies ahead and how we’ll need to play.”
