The Giants have lost to the Cowboys in their last four games, and have won only one of the previous six contests between the two teams.
To find out how to watch the New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys on the 2015 premiere of NFL Sunday Night Football, see the streaming info in the final paragraph of this article. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. Central Time in Arlington — 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 5:30 p.m. Pacific.
The Giants and the Cowboys began their rivalry in the year that the Cowboys were founded — 1960. They played one game in that NFL season, a game that ended in a 31-31 tie. That was the only game all season that the expansion Cowboys did not lose, as they finished their debut campaign at 0-11-1 in an era when the NFL schedule was just 12 games.
The Giants went on to win five of their next six games against the then-fledgling Cowboys, who did not post their first winning record in a season until 1966. But after the slow start, the Cowboys have gone on to get the better of the rivalry, which has taken on a new intensity ever since the two teams have competed each year for the NFC East Division title.
Overall, the Cowboys have won 61 games against the Giants, while losing 43 with two ties.
In 2015, the Cowboys are coming off a 12-4 season that ended with their Divisional Round playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers. But even after the loss of two-time Pro Bowl running back DeMarco Murray, who signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cowboys offense built around Quarterback Tony Romo, wide receiver Dez Bryant, and tight end Jason Witten has made the Cowboys Super Bowl contenders, at least in the eyes of numerous NFL experts.
The Giants, on the other hand, are hoping to put up their first winning season since 2012. Despite an unlikely run to a Super Bowl title in the 2011 season, the Giants have not won more than 10 games in a regular season since 2008.
