IRVING, Texas -- Not only will the Cowboys look to break a three-game losing streak to the New York Giants at Cowboys Stadium, they will also look to snap a two-game losing streak with Scott Green’s crew working the game between NFC East rivals Sunday.

Green worked the Week 14 matchup last year against the Giants in which the Cowboys were penalized 10 times for 51 yards. New York had six penalties for 55 yards. In 2010, he worked the Week 2 loss to Chicago in which the Cowboys were flagged six times for 50 yards. The Bears had two penalties for 10 yards.

Last week, the crew worked the Jacksonville-Oakland game and called 15 penalties for 150 yards, doing most of their work in the fourth quarter. The visiting Jaguars were penalties six times for 92 yards and the always flag-friendly Raiders had nine penalties for 58 yards.

The breakdown:

Offensive holding – 3
False start – 2
