Jason Garrett dislikes comparisons, so the Dallas coach had no interest in recalling the motivation for his Cowboys when he debuted with a win at the New York Giants six days after the firing of Wade Phillips in 2010. Why would Garrett get asked such a thing in the first place? Well, the Cowboys visit the Giants on Sunday. And New York will be led by interim coach Steve Spagnuolo after the firing of Ben McAdoo on Monday. "I'm sure every situation is different," Garrett said Monday , a few hours after the spiraling Giants cleaned house. "I think the biggest thing you try to do is lock in on what the opportunity is in front of you. That's what we're trying to do this week." Never miss a local story.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would have to fire himself for the same thing to happen in Dallas, and Jones has always said he'll never do that. So the other comparison will have to do, and begs the question of whether the Giants (2-10) can find a spark and spoil what remains of the playoff hopes for the Cowboys (6-6) a year after beating them twice when Dallas finished atop the NFC at 13-3. Seven years ago, the Cowboys bounced back from a humiliating prime-time blowout in Green Bay with a 33-20 win over the Giants that ended New York's five-game winning streak and sparked a 5-3 finish under Garrett after a 1-7 start. Nope. Still nothing from Garrett. "That was a particular situation that we had a few years ago, and we tried to handle it the best," Garrett said. "The biggest thing we tried to preach to our guys is just to prepare for the opportunity that we have on Sunday. It's the same thing we're preaching right now to our team." The Cowboys aren't nearly on the roll New York was for Garrett's debut. But quarterback Dak Prescott said his bruised throwing hand (right) is fine after taking a hit on it in last week's 38-14 win over Washington that snapped a three-game losing streak. And 2016 All-Pro linebacker Sean Lee said he's ready to return after missing three straight games with a hamstring injury.
