The Giants, at 5-2, are riding a three-game winning streak and enter Sunday's game against the 3-3 Cowboys with a chance to create some significant separation between themselves and the rest of the NFC East pack.
They also will have the opportunity to exact some revenge from the Giants' season-opening 24-17 loss.
"We didn't like going out there and losing that game," safety Antrel Rolle said in an interview on WFAN this afternoon. "Our first game at home, Wednesday night game, all the bright lights were turned on us and they came here and they whooped our butts, fair and square.
"They were definitely the better team that night and we'll show them who's the better team come Sunday night."
Observers claim the Giants are playing the best football in the NFL as they head into a brutal stretch on the schedule. Rolle doesn't think so.
"I can't say that we're the best team in football right now," Rolle said. "For one, our record doesn't show that, but two, we've been playing good football. I wouldn't say we've been playing great football. I don't think we've been playing to the kind of level I know we can play as a complete unit so at this point in time we're right where we need to be."
The Falcons own the league's best record at 6-0, while the Texans are 6-1 and the Bears are 5-1. The Giants are one of four teams sitting at 5-2.
"We'll continue to get better each and every week, but as far as putting that title of being the best team in football, no one is going to be able to do that until February, February 4th or 5th, whenever that game [the Super Bowl] is played," Rolle said. "Until then you just try to grow and get better each and every week and that's what we're trying to do here with the Giants."
