Giants vs. Cowboys TV Coverage: NBC
The Cowboys lost the opener a year ago to the Giants after Terrance Williams didn’t get out of bounds to give Dallas a chance at a game-winning field goal. Dallas won the previous four openers against New York. Dallas is the best team in the NFC in terms of home openers, as they have 32 wins since 1970.
The Giants are led on offense by Eli Manning who is coming off another season in which he threw for more than 4,000 yards. He is hoping to have Odell Beckham Jr. on Sunday night but Beckham is dealing with an injury. Manning will have a new target, as Brandon Marshall joined the team in the off-season.
The Cowboys have a powerful offense led by Elliott and Dak Prescott. The Cowboys did not have much success running the ball against the Giants last season even with Elliott, as they had a combined 101 yards in the opener and 108 yards later in the season.
The Giants are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings in this series and the Underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The Giants are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Dallas.
