The Dallas Cowboys meet the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in a matchup more fantasy owners than casual fans will be interested in watching on Monday night.

Headlined by marquee talent, tonight’s matchup pits two of the most talented running backs in the NFL against one another. Saquon Barkley was hampered by an ankle injury for a few weeks, but he’s one of the most productive runners in the league, carrying the ball for 5.0 yards per carry. Ezekiel Elliott, like Barkley, is one of the few runners in the league who carries the load for his team’s offense—through seven games, Elliott’s 19.29 carries per game ranks him sixth among all running backs.

These two teams squared off in the season opener back in September, and it was the Cowboys who came out of it with a convincing victory, 35-17. Since then, the Cowboys have been hot and cold, getting off to a 3-0 before stumbling their way to a 4-3 record heading into tonight’s game. The Giants, on the other hand, are in the midst of a rebuild and rebranding with Daniel Jones now under center for New York. At 2-6, the Giants are well on their way to another high draft pick come April’s NFL Draft.
