Ravens @ Giants 1:00 CBS

It’s no secret the Giants are struggling.  After the starting 2-0 they’ve crumbled to 2-3 with 3 consecutive losses.  This team spent a lot of money on the defensive side of the ball.  They haven’t been getting the return they envisioned for $200 million.  They just signed Coty Sensabaugh due to all the injuries in their defensive backfield.  This week a struggling Ravens team comes to town.  Giants will face an old foe in new OC Marty Mornhinweg after Trestman was just fired.   Both teams are struggling on offense.  If you’re a fan of either team don’t expect this to be a high scoring affair.  The Giants have become a little one dimensional after the injuries at the HB position.  After 3 straight losses the Giants have their backs against the wall.  A loss paired with another Eagles or Cowboys win they will lose site of the teams at the top of the division.  I actually like the Giants to get the W and back to level ground.

Giants Transactions:

10/11/2016 DB Coty Sensabaugh – Signed as a Free Agent
10/11/2016 LB Deontae Skinner – Signed off practice squad
10/11/2016 DT Montori Hughes – Waived
10/11/2016 DB Michael Hunter – Waived

Cowboys @ Packers 4:25 FOX

Buck and Aikman on the call as the East leading Cowboys take on one of the NFC’s best teams in the Packers.  At 4-1 the Cowboys have been a surprise.  Prescott only has one TO on the year and rookie HB Zeke Elliott has been gaining yards at a record pace.  The biggest surprise of the year might be their defense and how it hasn’t been a big liability as we all thought.  Now a big part of that goes to their offense who continues to pound the ball and control the clock.  Similar to what the Eagles offense has been able to do.  The Packers are playing well and will continue to be a top team in the NFC as long as Rodgers is at the controls.  Maybe it’s me but the Packers aren’t the same team they’ve been in the past.  Their defense is average at best and has a knack for giving up big plays.  If they can control the Cowboys running game they should fair well.

Cowboys Transactions:

Seymour, Ryan T Pract. Squad Add (from Giants) 10/11
McDermott, Shane C Pract. Squad Del
