The big story heading into this huge game on Sunday is the health of Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

The Dallas quarterback was forced to leave the game after one series last week as his throwing hand struck the helmet of an Eagles pass rusher while in the throwing motion.

Romo’s hand was swollen and was diagnosed as a bruise when x-rays came back negative. He is probable for Sunday night football.

Don’t look for the Cowboys run game to help Romo out here.

A big negative for the Cowboys is their lack of balance on offense as the team has struggled running the football since losing DeMarco Murray for the year.

This puts the game fully in the hands of quarterback Tony Romo and he has shown to not deliver in these spots.

Also with no respect to the Cowboys run game look for heavy pressure from the Giants defensive line.

Eli Manning has passed for 4587 yards on the year with 26 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

But in big spots you have to trust Eli Manning a lot more than Tony Romo to come through with a solid performance.

Wide out Victor Cruz has emerged as a big play go to receiver this year for New York.

Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw running the football in a late December game in New York is much better than what Dallas has in their backfield and especially in short yardage and goal line situations.

The Giants have shown to be the better bet than the Cowboys in huge “playoff” type games.

With no help from his run game you have a less than 100% Tony Romo forcing to produce all by himself in his passing game. Run game’s matter the most in late December and January games outdoors.

The New York Giants are also trending better in head to head matchups as Big Blue has covered four of the past five against the Cowboys.
