The Giants have had good success against the Dallas Cowboys on the road as they are 4-0 straight up in those four games and have averaged offensively 32 points a game in those four victories. The Cowboys had some major changes to their coaching staff in the offseason. They change offensive coordinators as they hired Monte Kiffin away from the USC Trojans as the team fired Rob Ryan from their staff after finishing 19th in the league in the 2012 campaign. There is a lot of pressure on head coach Jason Garrett who has not led the club to a playoff berth and has an overall record of just 21-19 After his lack of success play calling has been stripped from the Dallas head coach and former Jets offensive line coach Mike Callahan will be in charge of calling the Cowboys plays. Callahan differs in philosophy as he likes to lead on the run a bit more and Garrett was pass happy in his tenure as the teams play calling. Dallas averaged just 23 points a game the past two seasons and dropped almost a full yard to 3.6 yards per rush in the 2012 season. Dallas has not had success against the point spread in divisional games having gone 2-4 ATS in 2012, 0-6 ATS in 2011 and 2-4 ATS in the 2010 campaign. As a home favorite in the 2012 season the Cowboys were a pathetic 0-6 against the spread and just 3-16 ATS the past three seasons laying points at home. New York has been good in this role as a road underdog going 9-4 ATS in the past two season.
