The NFC East is great division. There’s always fodder for a story and some epic NFL contests have come from there. The 2009 NFl season is no different. There’s some fantastic, controversial stuff going on with the Dallas Cowboys, the New York Giants have manifold questions, the Eagles are an enticing Super Bowl pick for someone who like a little risk, and the Redskins spent big money again.
So when I look at the NFL schedule and the New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys on Sept 20th, I’m thinking this is going to be one interesting game. The New York Giants will be playing their second NFC East Game to open the season so the race will be on from the get go. Eli Manning just signed a mega-contract so the onus is on him to win. But he’ll have to do it while the Giants are looking for a receiver to emerge and replace Plaxico Burress. The only certainty with the New York Giants is that the pass rush will be unbelievable.
Which spells bad news for Tony Romo, who is dealing with his own set of problems. T.O. and his disruptions are gone. That means Williams will have to fill some big shoes. The Cowboys traded for him, giving away the farm to get their next star wideout. The pressure will be immense. For Romo, who has been pegged as both immensely talented and prone to mishaps in crucial moments, steady and effective leadership would shut a few people up. So would outplaying the NFL’s highest paid QB.
So, Giants at Cowboys tickets will be a prime way to get a handle on the NFC East. The early performer doesn’t always take this division. It was only two seasons ago that the Giants exploded on the NFL, going on a winning streak that carried them to the Super Bowl. But gaining the early edge could be crucial to winning a division that always seems to be a wide open race when the season gets underway.
