Giants At Cowboys 2017, Week 1

Giants At Cowboys 2017, Week 1

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took the trip with his team to Dallas in advance of Sunday night's game against the Cowboys.

Beckham is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener and is said to be a game-time decision.

Beckham said earlier this week he had done some running and cutting. Sustaining that elite pace will be hard, but the team's play over the last half of the prior year lends hope.

On Thursday, Giants offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan told reporters that other players have to step up. Elliott is free and clear to take the field for the Cowboys until Judge Amos Mazzant issues a final ruling on Elliott's pending lawsuit against the NFL. Beckham is a game changer and can tilt the scales in favor of the Giants on any given play.

Beckham has not practiced since spraining his left ankle on August 21 in a preseason game against Cleveland. The Giants have a recovery day Friday and will run a short practice at 85 percent on Saturday. The second game was a 10-7 victory, which was won on a 61 yard touchdown pass to Odell Beckham Jr.in the third quarter. With only five more touchdowns than interceptions on his ledger a year ago, Manning suffered through one of his weakest overall seasons. While Elliott is a full go in this one it is uncertain whether or not Beckham will be healthy enough to go and that could make a huge difference in the outcome of this one.

The Giants acquired six-time Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall this offseason and used their first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft to select tight end Evan Engram.

But the availability of Ezekiel Elliott, along with the momentum it brings the Cowboys may be just too much to overcome.

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

When veteran quarterback Tony Romo was injured in the preseason, many thought that the Cowboys season was lost.
