The third time will be a first for the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants. Dallas finally found out who it will play when the New York Giants won 24-14 Sunday at Tampa Bay to advance to the NFC Divisional Playoffs next weekend against the Cowboys.
It will be the third game this season between the Cowboys and Giants. But it will be the first time the NFC East rivals have ever met in the playoffs.
Dallas won both regular-season games against the Giants, including a 45-35 home victory in the season opener and 31-20 victory in New York on November 11th.
The Giants have won eight straight road games since that September loss in Dallas, including the victory over the Buccaneers in the NFC wild-card game.
