As the calendar turns to 2021, the NFL is experiencing pretty much what it covets. Miami, Baltimore, Cleveland, Tennessee and Indianapolis are chasing postseason qualification in the AFC, while the Cardinals, Rams, Bears, Giants, Cowboys and Washington seek NFC spots.

Playing with a backup quarterback and a defense that's finally found itself, the Dallas Cowboys are the hottest team in the NFC East entering the final weekend of the regular season. The Cowboys (6-9) will try to extend their winning streak to four games when they travel to the Meadowlands to face the New York Giants (5-10) on Sunday. Washington (6-9) has the inside track for the division title.

With a potential playoff berth on the line and, of course, the game being against the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett had no intention of talking about the future. Garrett, who coached the Cowboys for a decade, sidestepped questions on Thursday about whether he was either getting any feelers about a head coaching job or what his status is with the Giants after one season in which the offense has struggled. New York (5-10) ranks next to last in both offense and points scored (257) heading into Sunday's game against Dallas (6-9).

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was a full participant in practice for the second straight day on Thursday, paving the way for him to get the start at quarterback in the team’s Week 17 showdown against the Cowboys.

Both players seem to be out for the upcoming contest. The Cowboys defensive secondary is really were the injury mystery lies. Safety Xavier Woods has returned to practice and was reportedly doing well in practice yesterday, making his return look more promising.

Jones certainly knew he wasn't revealing much to anyone who has watched the Giants' games this season. In addition to averaging 5.5 carries through the first 10 games, he has three of the top four and four of the team's six longest runs this season, including an 80-yarder at Philadelphia on Oct. 22. His 406 rushing yards are a record for a Giants quarterback in the Super Bowl era.

With a potential NFC East title at stake on Sunday, the Giants will be forced to do something they've struggled as a team to do for more than a month: score some points. The Giants enter the final week of the regular season averaging just over 17 points per game. Only the Jets have scored less often than the Giants.

Look, I read Daniel’s comments,” Judge said Thursday. Probably a little more forthcoming than I would have been with it right there. We’ll do whatever it takes to win the game.

We need our best game on Sunday,” Graham said. Our most physical game. Our most sound execution.
