In the Sunday Night Football premiere, Dallas won the 110th meeting between the Cowboys and Giants. It wasn’t a high-scoring affair, but Dak Prescott threw for 268 yards and Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 104 yards. The Giants, and Eli Manning especially, seemed to miss Odell Beckham Jr. The offense totaled just 234 yards and didn’t sniff the end zone.
Dallas went with a healthy dose of Ezekiel Elliott and Alfred Morris to take time off the clock. They got in field goal range, and Dan Bailey stayed perfect, nailing the 36-yarder.
The Giants get off to a better start to kick off the second half. New York drove down the field 68 yards, but couldn’t get in the end zone, even with Peyton Manning watching.
Authentic Womens Michael Frolik Jersey Orlando Scandrick, CB, Dallas Cowboys: Scandrick sustained a left-hand injury during the first half against the Giants and was declared out. Anthony Brown took over as the nickel cornerback, with Chidobe Awuzie moving outside. Following the game, it was revealed that Scandrick has a broken left hand, but coach Jason Garrett said the team is optimistic Scandrick can return sooner rather than later. Monday, the team clarified that Scandrick will not play in Week 2, but is aiming to return for Monday Night Football on Week 3.
Zach Strief, OT, New Orleans Saints: Strief was knocked out of Monday night’s game with a knee injury after walking off the field with trainers before halftime. Losing Strief is a big blow to a Saints offense that was already starting the year without left tackle Terron Armstead because of a shoulder injury. Veteran swingman Senio Kelemete replaced Strief at right tackle.
