Manning hits Cruz for go-ahead TD, Giants top Cowboys 20-19

NFC East rivals Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants resume their rivalry on Sunday in Week 1 of the 2016-17 National Football League season. The Dallas Cowboys were early favorites in this game, but now this game is a pick'em at 5Dimes.

"Twelve seconds isn't enough time to clock the ball", McAdoo said of the clock at the start of the play, in which Williams caught the pass but could not get out of bounds. It was, unquestionably, the wrong call.

Behind what the Cowboys believed was a tremendous offensive line, with that stocked stable of running backs and a strong roster of receivers - including arguably the best receiver in the NFL, Dez Bryant - Prescott entered the season knowing he didn't need to win any games for the Cowboys. They would have forced the Giants to attack differently and protected a Cowboys defense that needs as much protection as possible. However, the game was sealed for the Giants when Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams elected to stay in bounds instead of going out of bounds.

Based on what we saw in this situation a year ago it nearly feels that making a prediction one way or another is a lost cause. Second-round pick Sterling Shepard had the most athletic catch for the Giants, a leaping grab over rookie Dallas cornerback Anthony Brown for a 13-9 lead just before halftime. Jason Garrett didn't excuse it, but it wasn't the reason the Cowboys are 0-1.

"Everybody just pulled for me each and every day, each and every week as we got closer to Week 1".

"In my mind, I was just trying to get a first down and then dive out of bounds, but it just didn't go as planned", Williams continued. "You think I'm worrying about that now?" Eli Manning was able to sit back in the pocket and throw at will.

To catch the game-winning touchdown on the road against the Dallas Cowboys after missing almost two years to injuries didn't enter his mind.

This was Cruz's first game since suffering a season-ending knee injury against the Eagles in 2014.

Down one with just over a minute to go and no timeouts, the Cowboys moved the ball 26 yards in 53 seconds to their own 46-yard line. A holding penalty aided in the disaster. This marked the second straight year that the two have faced each other in the year's first game and the fourth time in the last five campaigns.

The Cowboys had the ball twice after NY took the lead but couldn't come up with points.

If there was one Dallas Cowboys player who was dependable all throughout the game, it was Dan Bailey.

The Giants had a first-and-goal from the 3 on the go-ahead drive. Beasley could have scored, had he hauled the pass - that was marginally high - in. Prescott completed 25 of his 45 passes for 227 yards. No touchdowns for Prescott.

"Really liked his poise, his composure, his decision-making throughout and how he handled different situations in the game", Garrett said. The reality is that if the Cowboys defense can't get a pass rush and the offense can't score touchdowns, it's going to be a long season and the Cowboys will suffer a lot of losses like the one today to the hated NY Giants. Dez Bryant finished the game with one catch for eight yards.
