Key Match-Ups vs. NYG:
Mychal Kendricks vs. Evan Engram:
Partially due to the amount of injuries to their receivers, Evan Engram has really stepped up at the tight end position. He leads the Giants in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns showing he is clearly their biggest threat on offense. It is very important for our linebackers to cover him well and it will likely be Kendricks' responsibility. Kendricks is our fastest LB and the best one in coverage (with Hicks out). If we can stop Engram their offense won't be able to get anything going and will become 1 dimensional.
Big V vs. Olivier Vernon:
Olivier Vernon is second on the team in sacks (3.5) right behind JPP. Big V has struggled a lot as of late and the Giants defensive ends will certainly be a challenge for him. Nick Foles needs to be protected this game and if Vaitai can control Vernon we will be in good shape.

Disclaimer: I feel badly for Carson, I hate seeing guys get hurt. plus he was playing so well. Sucks my cowboys have to face this guy twice per season for the next 10 years :( But this is too funny #CryEaglesCry#nfl#nfceast#freshprinceofbelair
