Sunday’s game is presented by United Airlines, the official airline of the New York Giants.

The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys meet in a regular-season finale for the first time since New Year’s Day, 2012. The Giants won, 31-14, at MetLife Stadium in a winner-take-all game for the NFC East title. The Giants claimed their fourth Super Bowl title a month later.


·         Eli Manning has more completions (601), passing yards (6,953) and touchdown passes (50) against the Cowboys than any other player in NFL history. Tiki Barber has the most rushing yards (1,304) and Michael Strahan the most sacks (18) vs. Dallas.

·         There has been only one postseason meeting between the Giants and Cowboys. Big Blue won it, 21-17, at Texas Stadium in the 2007 Divisional Round, en route to winning Super Bowl XLII.

·         In his first game against the Cowboys in Week 2, rookie Saquon Barkley set the franchise record for most receptions in a game with 14. Tiki Barber, a fellow running back, held the previous record with 13 in a 2000 game - also against the Cowboys.


First Responder Appreciation

The Giants will celebrate the courageous efforts of our local first responders during Sunday’s game.  Season ticket holders who are current or former police officers, fire fighters, paramedics or EMT’s will hold our flag during the singing of the National Anthem, and the Franklin Township (N.J.)
