(East Rutherford) — The New York Giants (8-7) play host to the Dallas Cowboys (8-7) Sunday for the NFC East title. The winner will also receive the number 4 seed in the NFC playoffs.
Earlier in the week, there was speculation as to whether Dallas quarterback Tony Romo would play. He injured his throwing hand during last weeks game against the Eagles.
Despite the speculation, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones seems pretty confident his quarterback will start.
“He’s going to be playing at full strength,” Jones said on KRLD-FM Friday morning. “It’s just a very big-time feel-good to know that we’re going to be going in with this kind of quarterbacking. He’s had an outstanding year. He’s a top, top quarterback and he’s got a good team around him. In my belief, a very good team around him, so the stage is set for us to play well in a big game.”
According to the Giants, the game will be the first time ever in their history where the winner makes the playoffs and the loser goes home.
