Cowboys Vs. Giants: TV Schedule, Game Time Announcers And More

The NFC East rivals meet Sunday night in a winner-take-all showdown. On the line: the division title and a spot in the playoffs.

Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys face off against Eli Manning and the New York Giants for the NFC East division title in Week 17, a game that NBC has flexed into the spotlight of Sunday Night Football. The Giants, who own the tiebreaker thanks to a Cowboys' meltdown in a 37-34 loss three weeks earlier, will enjoy home advantage and a surging defense featuring breakout defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and the likely return of Osi Umenyiora, who has missed four games with a high ankle sprain.

The Cowboys will face not only a hostile crowd, but their own history of late-season shortcomings during Romo's tenure at quarterback. Dallas -- which is 0-6 in Sunday Night Football games -- lost in Week 1 of the playoffs due to Romo errors following the 2006 and 2007 seasons, suffered a 44-6 drubbing to the Eagles with a playoff spot on the line in Week 17 of 2008, and lost games to the Lions and Jets earlier this year due to inexcusable late-game throws by Romo. On the other hand, Romo's playing the best season of his career, winning one game with broken ribs and a punctured lung. He'll play this Sunday despite a swollen throwing hand he suffered in Week 16.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, Jan. 1, 8:20 p.m. ET

Location: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey

TV: NBC

Announcers: Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth
