The Dallas Cowboys spent this past week at home due to a bye, but the team will need the extra time as the team as they face a hungry New York Giants team.  Although New York started the year 0-6, they have rebounded as they have won their last four games and put themselves right in the middle of the hunt for the NFC East title.

As for Dallas, they have not been as good in their last four games as they as 2-2 including a embarrassing 49-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints before their bye.  The team has also sustained a multitude of injuries since they faced the Giants in week one of the season.  The most crucial of those losses was to linebacker Sean Lee who was the leader of that defensive unit.  Dallas will need some young players to step up in the absence of these veterans or they will find themselves even further back in the NFC East standings.  As it sits right now, the Philadelphia Eagles are in first at 6-5 with Dallas in second with a 5-5 record.  New York is right there as well though sitting just one game back of the Cowboys at 4-6.  The Washington Redskins are holding down the final spot in the division at 3-7.  That brings us to our FAN poll of the day.
