Alright, so I will be starting an NHL pick of the week and NFL pick of the week from here on out. This will be short and simple nothing crazy no big detail explanation just showing you my pick and stating my reasoning. One pick every NFL week and 1 pick every week when the NHL regular season starts.
Here it is, NFL pick of the week.
Giants @ Cowboys:
Why the Giants well it is this simple, the Giants yes have been not so great vs Dallas over the last 7 years, they are 7-9 since 2010 and 4-7 on Sunday Night football vs Dallas. Sure, it may seem like all signs are pointing to Dallas for this one but, this is not a 2017, 2016, 2015 Dallas team anymore. Dak Prescott has thrown 1 touchdown pass in the last four weeks he has a 63 completion percentage and his highest passing game was 200+ yards in week 15, since that he has thrown for around 160-181 yards in the last four weeks. On top of that the Cowboys receivers are who? Allen Hurns, Tavon Austin and Cole Beasley? Well on the other end of the ball the Giants have Odell Beckham Jr, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram and now a run game in Seqon Barkley. Yes, the Cowboys have Ezekiel Elliot so it will be a tale of Barkley vs Elliot. And the Giants all they have to do really is shut down the Cowboys offense which is not too hard, keep Dak under 200 yards which seems do able. Make sure the Giants o-line is not a complete abysmal and this game is all Giants. They lost by 5 by to the Jaguars and the Cowboys lost to the Panthers by 8 and only scored 8 points themselves in week one. The Giants in Dallas, mark it down and lock it in. Done deal people, see ya next week.
