Ezekiel Elliot's Return Highlights Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants

  • Witten Elliott lead as Cowboys stifle Giants 19-3 in opener

Giants at Cowboys news:What impressed me most about his film past year was how good he was at controlling one blocker, then coming off and making the tackle. It was the largest one-season turnaround in franchise history.

Now 36 years old, Eli Manning likely wouldn't have to endure questions about his age if it weren't for the lackluster season he put up in 2016. I think the Giants win the game outright, so getting four is a bonus. They now hope a revamped offense featuring receiver Brandon Marshall and rookie tight end Evan Engram.

Series Notes: The Cowboys have dominated the Giants in this division rivalry. Beckham has caught at least 90 passes, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in his first three seasons.

Because of Beckham's late game, you either have to start someone in his place before knowing his final status, have another player to replace him with on the Giants or Cowboys, or have a player from the Monday Night Football games. Bryant had a total of two catches for 18 yards in the team's two matchups a year ago. Add in the fact that NY seems to have improved in the offseason, and it looks like they might spoil the Cowboys plans for a winning home opener. The Giants' secondary consistently came up with big plays - their 17 interceptions were fourth in the league a year ago. Before that Dallas reeled off five consecutive victories over the Giants.


As much as Beckham wants it to be all about the greatness - and make no mistake, he is one of the most electrifying players in the game, capable of ridiculous one-handed grabs and absurd open-field runs - history has proven he can't always avoid the distractions.

The Giants need a better offense, but they already have an elite defense.

Not only is Ezekiel Elliott playing in this game, he'll be playing the whole season just as I predicted. The Cowboys seem to be NBC's go to for closing the first week of the season.
