Defending the Star:
New York Giants

One game. Two rivals. One division title.
Nothing else matters.
When the Cowboys and Giants take the field in New Jersey on Sunday night, they will sport matching 8-7 records and matching goals: the NFC East. The loser's season is over. And that is how it should be.
