The Dallas Cowboys and New York Goliaths will reestablish their NFC East contention on Monday night, and this one may be a sign of whether the times are evolving.
The Cowboys, the guarding division champions, have claimed the Monsters for the past five years. The groups have played multiple times, and Dallas has won nine.
However, this season has gotten off to an intriguing beginning. Dallas has divided two games and saw quarterback Dak Prescott undergo a medical procedure after the season opener. How long the star quarterback will be sidelined is questionable, yet Cooper Rush will be running the offense against the great Monsters.
New York, which dominated four matches last year, is most of the way to that absolute in the wake of knocking off Tennessee and Carolina in Brian Daboll's initial two games as a mentor. Beating Dallas in a broadcast game would be one more move toward decency after five straight losing seasons.
"This is a divisional rival and the speediest method for getting into the postseason is to dominate divisional matches," said Real Shepard, the Monsters' ebb and flow longest-tenured player. "They are generally tremendous games regardless of which start you have."
Cowboys mentor Mike McCarthy said previous outcomes wouldn't impact the present.
