Sunday September 11th, 2016

The Giants and the Cowboys will have their almost annual Week 1 matchup as both teams look to bounce back from disappointing seasons.

The Giants have missed the playoffs in each of the past four seasons, and while their offense is capable of moving the ball, the defense was historically bad in 2015. The Giants were dead last in the NFL in passing and total defense, which prompted the team to spend big during free agency on the defensive side of the ball as well as selecting three defensive players in the 2016 NFL draft. 

The Cowboys enter the game with a myriad of issues, including having three defensive potential starters suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy.  In the meantime, the offense will be left in the hands of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, who will take over for Tony Romo after the veteran was sidelined with a back injury during the preseason. Dallas will have to rely on the league's best offensive line, while veteran wideout Dez Bryant and rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott look to pace the offense.
