The New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys meet up in an NFC East rivalry game in Arlington, Texas at AT&T Stadium in Week 5. The quarterback matchup between the Giants’ Daniel Jones and the Cowboys’ Dak Prescott should be an interesting one.

Daniel Jones helped lead New York to a win over the New Orleans Saints last week, throwing for 402 passing yards and two touchdowns. Jones has now thrown for at least 249 yards in each of the first four games and will face a Dallas defense that is allowing 336 passing yards per game (31st in the NFL).

Dak Prescott threw for just 188 yards in last week’s victory over the Carolina Panthers, but still collected four touchdown passes. Prescott has failed to reach 240 passing yards in each of the last three games.

WynnBET Sportsbook has set Prescott’s passing yards prop at 280.5 passing yards (Over -125/Under -115) and Jones’ passing yards prop at 271.5 (Over -125/Under -115).

Jones has thrown for quite a bit of yards this season, and should be able to again against the Cowboys passing defense. Quarterbacks Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers, Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles, and Sam Darnold of the Panthers have all eclipsed 300 passing yards against Dallas in the first four weeks.

With Jones’ line set at 271.5 yards, that looks like a safe over.

Prescott may be handing the ball off to running backs Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard in this game as New York’s defense has allowed 122.8 rushing yards per game (21st in the NFL). While the Giants passing defense is not much better at 19th in the NFL (269.5 passing yards against per game), the Cowboys may just churn the clock and try to limit turnovers with the ground game.

I’ll say that Daniel Jones will have more passing yards than Dak Prescott. And I would take the over on Jones' passing touchdowns prop too, which WynnBET has set at 1.5 (Over +100/Under -140).
