The New York Giants will need help from the Philadelphia Eagles in order to finish on top of the NFC East and sneak into the playoffs, but so far, they are handling their own business against the Dallas Cowboys.

With quarterback Daniel Jones already having two touchdown passes, the Giants took a 20-9 halftime lead over the Cowboys in their Week 17 game, with Jones throwing a dime to wide receiver Dante Pettis just before halftime:

In the second quarter, with time down to 45 seconds and New York at the Cowboys’ 33-yard line, Jones found Pettis for a 33-yard score to extend their lead to 20-6 before a 57-yard Greg Zuerlein field goal allowed Dallas to close to within 20-9 at the break.

Jones completed 10-of-15 passes for 150 passing yards and two scores in the first half, giving him 11 touchdown passes this season against nine interceptions. Pettis, meanwhile, found the end zone for the first time this season after having just two receptions in his first six games.

Should the Giants go on to beat the Cowboys, they will still need the Eagles to beat the Washington Football Team in order to win the division title. That would put New York, Washington, and Dallas into a three-way tie on top of the division, with the Giants barging into the postseason because of a superior record against NFC East teams.

It has been quite the roller-coaster ride this season for New York. The Giants started 0-5 and then 1-7 before a four-game winning streak got them to 5-7. However, a three-game losing streak had them at 5-10 heading into this Week 17 affair.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys entered Week 17 winners of three straight games. Dallas looked to be finished when it had a 2-7 record after nine games, but the team has bounced back over the second half of the season.
