Are you guys ready for the annual Thanksgiving debates? Let’s do it.
Do you call it dressing or stuffing? Should Thanksgiving dinner be served in the afternoon or early in the evening? Is macaroni a side or a main dish?

Check out our predictions below for this huge Giants-Cowboys battle!
How many total points will be scored in the game?
At FOX Bet, the Over/Under for this game is currently set to 44.5. And it’s also important to note that this year, both these teams’ games have hit the Under more often than not. The Under has hit in seven out of 10 Cowboys games and in eight out of 10 Giants matchups.
But we’re expecting lots of points in this game. Let’s talk about why.
Since 2016, when America’s Team plays NFC East opponents at home, the Over has hit 14 out of 20 times. And if both offenses wait until post game to devour some Turducken, everybody should be light enough on their feet to run up the scoreboard.
44-48 points scored by both teams combined
Which team will have the most passing yards and how many will they have?
Daniel Jones absolutely let it fly in the Giants’ Week 11 loss to the Lions, throwing for a cool 341 yards. But if you take the sample size of each team’s last three games, Dak has consistently passed for more yards than Daniel. In the Cowboys’ last three games, Dak’s passing yards have been 250, 265 and 276.
Prescott & Co. have the edge here.
Cowboys, 285-309 passing yards
Which team will have the most rushing yards and how many will they have?
From letting Zeke eat to having Tony tote the rock, the Cowboys do damage on the ground. The squad’s 136.2 yards per game ranks eighth in the league. However, the New York Football Giants actually run the ball better. They’re averaging 157.2 rushing yards in their games this season.
Start spreading the news. NY will rack up more rushing yards this Turkey Day.
Giants, 175-184 rushing yards
Which team will have the longest punt, and how long will it be?
Punters need love, too, and this is why this is one of our favorite questions for this contest.
Bryan Anger, the Dallas punter, is averaging 48.7 yards per punt. And he has an 83-yard punt that’s good for longest in the league this season. Giants punter Jamie Gillan is averaging 47.7 yards per punt, so he’s not too far behind Anger there. But his longest of the season is 69.
We’re backing Bryan on this one.
Cowboys, 59-62 yards
Which team will have the longest field goal, and how long will it be?
From punters to kickers, we’re showing how grateful we are for special teams players during this Thanksgiving showdown. And it’s the Cowboys’ kicker Brett Maher we like better in this matchup. Maher’s 60-yard field goal is the second-longest in the NFL this year. He also had a huge game against the Vikings last weekend, so let’s ride the hot hand, or should we say leg.
Cowboys, 54-56 yards
Which team will win and by how many points?
This Thanksgiving, we’d be especially grateful to see a competitive game that’s exciting for all 60 minutes. Santa, is that too much to ask? Wait, wrong holiday.
At any rate, we expect the Giants to keep it interesting, but ultimately, we see Dallas winning a close one at home.
Cowboys by 6 points
