On Sunday, the conclusion of the 2018 regular season will arrive for the New York Giants, and depending on how their game against the Dallas Cowboys concludes, it will determine where in the top 10 that they will be drafting.
The Giants could try to get one last victory and go to 6-10, but risk falling down to as low as the 10th overall pick. However, a loss could bump them as high as the fourth overall pick with a 5-11 record.
The Cowboys, though, have clinched the NFC East title and are focusing on whomever their first round opponent will be, but first, they have to finish their schedule and the regular season with the Giants.
Heading into the season finale, here are three causes of concern for the Giants when they take on the Cowboys.
For several years, the Cowboys’ defense was always seen as an issue. But here in 2018, it’s been a strong point of the team, as they rank fourth in the NFL in total points allowed.
They have Demarcus Lawrence, who leads the team with 9.5 sacks and is always someone that the offensive line will have to keep an eye on, plus linebackers Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith, both of whom have over 100 tackles this season.
In the first meeting back in September at AT&T Stadium, the Giants were only able to muster up 13 points in a 20-13 defeat. They will need to score a lot more than 13 points if they want to knock off the Cowboys at home this Sunday.
