Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys (7-3), tied for the top spot in the NFC East with the Philadelphia Eagles, visit division rivals Eli Manning and the New York Giants (3-7) at MetLife Stadium Nov. 23 on "Sunday Night Football." Pre-game coverage begins with "Football Night In America" at 7 p.m. ET.

Romo played in Week 10 following a Week 9 back injury, passing for 246 yards and connecting with wideout Dez Bryant for two touchdown passes in a 31-17 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray leads the league in rushing yards (1,233), and is the only player in NFL history with at least 100 rushing yards in nine of his team's first 10 games.

Giants' rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has 21 catches for 357 yards in his past three games, second-most in the NFL by any player.

Sunday's game marks the ninth consecutive season these teams have met in primetime, tying an NFL record (Bears-Packers, 2006-14, Chargers-Raiders, 1981-89). The Cowboys have won the past three games against the Giants, including a 31-21 victory earlier this season in Week 7.
