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

Adjust Comment Print

It's only one game, but out of the 26 teams that have already played this weekend, only six finished with less yardage than the Giants' 233, which includes 60 garbage-time yards that NY recorded on their final drive with the game out of reach.

Truthfully, given the play of the offensive line and the lack of a running game, even the presence of Odell Beckham Jr.

He wouldn't speculate whether Beckham will play in the home opener next Monday night against the Lions.

Dallas and NY should make for a great opening to Sunday Night Football this year. He went almost the entire game without a catch for the first time since his rookie season in 2006. "This just happened to be the first one. Offensively, scoring three points is nowhere near where we want to be".

Tough guy Jason Witten scored the game's only touchdown while setting another franchise record for the Dallas Cowboys, perhaps the most prestigious yet.

Of course, it hurt that Beckham was placed on the inactive list after he worked out for the coaches and medical staff before the game and his sprained left ankle was not deemed game worthy.

His absence was obvious, and a bonus for his agent whenever he starts negotiations on a new contract with the Giants.

With Sunday's pitiful performance from the Giants offense, it became clear that Beckham is worth the money.

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

The Giants finished third in the National Football League in 2016 in sacks allowed, giving up just 1.38 per game. I would like to take this opportunity to share with all of you The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly that took place for the Dallas Cowboys last night. With Beckham and his game-breaking ability missing, it was the flawless plan.

And instead of trying their very best to fix that specific area of the team, they chose to ignore it and add more skill players (Marshall, Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison) via free agency or high draft choices. Considering that the Cowboys seemed to always start close the Giants territory as well as the fact that the Giants defense rarely left the field, the defense played well. The Giants defense has a chance to be the best in football this season. "We got players. We have got to play better than that". One major help to the New York Giants is their defense.

PASS DEFENSE: A The Cowboys had three sacks, putting them on pace for 48 for the season which would be the most since recording 59 in 2008.

McAdoo refused to point a finger, saying the line wasn't the only group on offense missing assignments.

"We wanted to be aggressive and make them stop us", Prescott said. "Whether it's one hand, two hands, a fingertip, we expect to come down and make that play". "There was enough [blame] spread around".

Remember, though: This is a team that forced a fade pass to 5-foot-8 running back Bobby Rainey a year ago in the end zone.

Probably not. Why? Reese loved his disastrous offensive line from 2016 so much he chose to keep it intact.
