Giants vs. Cowboys Odds: Point Spread, Total & Prediction”

The 35-year-old, in his 15th season, later caught the Cowboys' first touchdown of the season to give Dallas a 13-0 lead with just under two minutes remaining in the first half.

The Giants QB finished with a 29-for-38 game with 20 yards and an interception while getting sacked three times for a total loss of 22 yards. Welcome Rhett Ellenson. An H-back who will diversify the offense, and allow us to run something other than a 3-wide receiver set.

That's the challenge for the Giants as they close the books on the Cowboys and prepare for the Lions in Monday night's home opener. Here's the latest Giants vs. Cowboys recap including top performers, game stats, an early standings update, and the next games on the schedule for these teams.

"You try and get better each and every day", Beckham said Wednesday. "I've got do a better job, get better prepared". Eli Manning is the reason we lost this game tonight. What's scary is that, as confident as Prescott was for most of 2016, he came out looking like a totally seasoned pro to begin 2017. Dallas receiver Cole Beasley made a insane catch in the fourth quarter to keep a drive alive.

All of that pales in comparison to the Cowboys' defensive effort.

"Every phase played well - allowing three points in the National Football League is tough to do", Dallas owner Jerry Jones said. The Cowboys needed only look across to the opposite sideline to see how an offense can grind to a halt when its most critical force is absent. "I think we were two-for-two on third and short, which was nice to pick up those plays".

It was the best and most consistent pass-rushing performance the Cowboys have delivered in recent memory.

It's a good thing that the Giants are not a Broadway play. "And you know you don't want to talk about it, but I've gotten to the point in my life where I'm like, 'No, I'm going to, there's no need to not talk about it.' I believe that I will be, hopefully not just the highest-paid receiver in the league, but the highest paid, period". Evan (Engram) made a big play for us.

While Beckham's presence would have helped in Week 1, he played in six of the seven aforementioned games, proving the Giants' issues on that side of the ball are far too multi-faceted for the playmaker to cover up on his own. But without Odell Beckham Jr. on the field, Marshall hauled in only one reception for 10 yards on four targets.

"It's like the elephant in the room", Beckham said, regarding his contract and looming negotiations.

Last year Johnathan Hankins teamed up with Damon Harrison to occupy space and deny Dallas the kind of interior movement they were so good at creating. Dallas' season is very much alive because a judge said Elliott would be available, possibly for the entire year. Those expectations were obviously greater for 2017. He added the coaching staff saw what Dallas was doing on defense and NY had too many mistakes to take advantage.
