Week 12: at New York Giants

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Romo confirmed he emerged from the Week 10 win over the Jaguars in London (in which he threw 20/27 for 246 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions) without setbacks. 'Just sore,' Romo said afterward. 'Anybody that's had any broken bones, it's uncomfortable at times and things like that. But if you play football, you go play.' Dez Bryant had a monster game in London with eight targets for 6/158/2 receiving - he's on fire coming into the stretch run for the playoffs. Entering this Week 12 matchup, Romo will have had an extra bye week of rest so hopefully it's all green lights for him in this contest. He threw 17/23 for 279 yards passing, three TDs and one interception against the Giants during Week 7 (October 19), hitting Dez Bryant (13 targets for 9/151/0 receiving) the most during the contest. Gavin Escobar (three for 2/65/2) and Terrance Williams (three for 1/18/1) reeled in Romo's TD passes that day (Escobar has just 8/99/3 receiving this season - outside the big game vs. the Giants he's been a fantasy non-factor). The Giants' pass D is currently 22nd in the league averaging 252.7 net passing yards allowed per game, with 15 passing TDs allowed vs. 13 interceptions (fifth in the NFL) and 17 sacks (tied for 25th) generated to date. They gave up just 15/30 for 185 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions to Colin Kaepernick last week, though, after keeping Russell Wilson to 10/17 for 160 net yards, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown two games ago. Teams are electing to attack the soft New York defensive front in the rushing phase of the game of late, limting the amount of passing yards they post in this phase of the game. Dallas has an outstanding rushing attack this season, so given the Giants' vulnerability there we may not see Romo throwing the ball often in this one - on balance, we rate this a neutral matchup for the visiting Cowboys.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Beasley had a timely reception in the third quarter to shift momentum for the Dallas offense against Arizona. The Cowboys were struggling and Beasley broke a slant route back to the outside for yards-after-the-catch and a first down. Beasley continues to make situationally-relevant plays with his limited snap count.

2014 Week 10 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Beasley caught his sole target, but an uncharacteristic fumble turned the ball over to Jacksonville. Dallas was in field goal range when the game was still in doubt.
