What channel is Cowboys vs. Giants on today? Time, TV schedule for NFL Week 17 game

The winner of Cowboys vs. Giants in Week 17 will get to watch and wait. The loser is heading home.

That’s how tight the NFC East is. Dallas and New York play at 1 p.m. ET. The winner of that game positions itself to win the division depending on the results of Sunday Night Football. If the Washington Football Team beats Philadelphia on Sunday night, Washington goes to the postseason and the Cowboys and Giants both go home. But if Philly wins, the winner of Cowboys-Giants is going to the playoffs.

Dallas is coming off a big offensive game in Week 16 against the Eagles to reach this point, while the Giants have been struggling mightily of late. New York will need to slow down the Cowboys’ receiving weapons to have a chance. 

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Cowboys vs. Giants game on Sunday, including kickoff time, TV channels and a full Week 17 NFL schedule.
