The New York Giants are coming off a tight loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon and are heading down to Dallas to face their rivals. Although both teams lost Week 1, that didn’t stop the trash talk from starting up. The Giants aren’t afraid of the Cowboys. The Giants are fresh and all of the injuries that plagued them last year are in the past. Odell Beckham Jr. is back in true form and after Saquon Barkley broke away for a 68-yard touchdown, the Giants feel like they can compete with anyone. Landon Collins made that much clear.
Landon Collins knows the importance of stopping Ezekiel Elliott. He thinks if they put the ball in Dak Prescott’s hands, “I think we have a better shot of winning.” #Giants pic.twitter.com/1uKIptk4aN

Collins saying the Cowboys have a better shot of winning if the ball is in Dak Prescott’s hands is pure gold. My goodness, the shade.
We're seeing Dak Prescott is a QB who needs weapons around him to be successful, and when he doesn't, he struggles. He was great as a rookie when he had the best OL in the NFL and people to throw to. He has neither now…

Maybe Landon has been checking the stat sheets because after a stellar rookie year, Dak hasn’t lived up to the expectations.
Dak has thrown for less than 200 yards in 7 of his last 9 games. Seems like if the Giants don’t let the Cowboys feed Ezekiel Elliott, they may be the ones feasting at the end of the night come Sunday.
