The records don’t matter much. The fact that the Cowboys shocked everyone with a win over the Giants in the opener doesn’t figure into it much, either. Nope. It’s just that, whenever the Giants and Cowboys play, it’s must-see TV. Was there any doubt this would be the No. 1 game this week in my rankings? Throw in the Cowboys on-again, off-again issues. Throw in the game-by-game heroics of Eli Manning. Throw in some essential Cowboys injuries — Sean Lee, DeMarco Murray — and you’ve got some intrigue. Oh, and did I mention the Cowboys have never beaten the Giants at their new home. Will that change this Sunday? While you’re thinking… Check out the Rap Sheet Rankings just posted […]

The New York Giants opened up the defense of their Super Bowl title with a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Linebacker Michael Boley, who has three interceptions on the season, told “NFL AM” Wednesday that the Giants are keying on Sunday’s rematch. “(Game 1) was a game we felt we should have won, hands down,” Boley said. “(It was) a game that we came out and really didn’t play as well as we felt that we should have. This game is definitely a game we look to get some revenge on.”

Before we get started, that headline is a total lie. If you clicked here to read my body language analysis, stop reading and go watch CNN.

What I am going to analyze is facts. Like, how Bears QB Jay Cutler was destroyed by Ndamukong Suh’s side suplex, only to return one play later and lead his team to victory. And words, which are what Panthers QB Cam Newton uses after each loss. Like how Newton said, “I think you can go around the locker room and expect […]
