Week 8 NFL picks: Giants a popular pick to beat Cowboys

Stephen Dunn

The Giants and Cowboys will meet in Dallas on Sunday, and most experts are picking the Giants to prevail.

The Cowboys and Giants will renew their rivalry on Sunday afternoon, with the Cowboys needing a win to stay close to the division leaders. The Giants enter the contest at 5-2, while the Cowboys enter Week 8 at 3-3.

The Cowboys beat the Giants in New York in the NFL's season opener, but despite that victory, most experts still seem to like the Giants to win on the road.

Over at ESPN, Seth Wickersham and Keyshawn Johnson were the only members of the 12-man panel to pick the Cowboys over the Giants. Both Accuscore and Pick 'Em like the Giants as well.

The picks at CBS Sports weren't very different from those at ESPN, as six of the eight selections there favored New York. All three picks at Yahoo! like the Giants, and the Yahoo! users picked New York to come out on top, as well.

Here at SB Nation, Ryan Van Bibber is bucking the trend. He likes the Cowboys to win on Sunday, and he had the following to say about his pick:

"Dallas is the picture of mediocrity this season, barely getting by Carolina last week. Nevertheless, the intensity of this rivalry makes it likely that this game will be a much tighter contest than it should be. Tony Romo went all last week without an interception. Historically, he has played well against the Giants, too, with a rating north of 100 in his last six against Big Blue. Dallas is 34-8 when Romo finishes a game with a QB rating of 100 or better."

The game will kick off Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET from Dallas and will be televised on FOX.
