National Football League files appeal over Ezekiel Elliott injunction

Jason Witten scored the only touchdown while breaking the franchise record for yards receiving and the Dallas defense shackled a NY offense missing Odell Beckham the Cowboys' 19-3 season-opening victory over the Giants on Sunday night.

"Well, that was about whether or not the player had misrepresented to the commissioner", Jones said.

McAdoo said he wanted to get Marshall involved earlier, but it didn't work out. If the defence, mainly Sean Lee, can stay healthy they will go a long way in 2017.

The Giants had eight months to fix their offense in the time between their final game of the 2016 season and Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys.

"We have high expectations in the wide receiver room", he said.

RUN DEFENSE: A The Giants rushed 12 times for 35 yards. So for us to be able to do that against that offense, I thought that was impressive. "That's no excuse", the coach said. "No one got going". The Giants were outgained 392-233 in total yards while losing the time of possession by almost 10 minutes, a trademark of this current Dallas team.

With an 11-yard reception in the second quarter, Jason Witten broke Michael Irvin's Cowboys' career receiving mark. Beckham has caught at least 90 passes, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in his first three seasons. "We have to do a better job finding completions on third [down] and converting those third downs".

Marshall, who was hesitant to discuss his individual performance much after the game, conceded it was "exactly what you saw", a drop.

The Giants are a well-balanced team with an aggressive defence and they'll need to be on their game to quell the influence of Prescott and co. Brett Favre and brother Peyton Manning are the only other National Football League quarterbacks who have started 200 consecutive games. Peyton Manning had 208 straight starts covering all 13 of his seasons with Indianapolis before neck surgery sidelined him the entire 2011 season. It was actually a game like many the Giants have played over the past year. But even with Beckham past year, the unit struggled to score, so there is no guarantee that his presence will be a cure-all for the problems showcased in the first game of the season. DeMarcus Lawrence recorded Dallas' first sack on a twist that Giants right guard John Jerry failed to pick up to the inside during New York's first possession. They never came close to reaching Cowboys territory. He finished 29-of-38 for 220 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. He pointed out solid contributions from wide receiver Sterling Shepard and rookie tight end Evan Engram and repeatedly stressed the season opener was just a bad start, nothing more. "I wasn't looking at the rush", he said.

Landon Collins - The All-Pro safety continues to get better on a seemingly play-by-play basis. I'll start with me and go from there.
