Quick Take: Rivalry kicks off NFL’s 93rd season
Why this game is intriguing: No one played a more consequential regular-season game last year, with the Giants abruptly ending the Dallas Cowboys’ season in Week 17 before moonwalking to another Super Bowl title. The distinct paths of these two rivals were stunning. Now they meet again in a nationally televised divisional game, with both teams dying to make a smashing first impression. And hey, it means football is back!
What to watch: The Dallas Cowboys debut a new secondary featuring two of the top corners available this offseason: rookie Morris Claiborne and free agent Brandon Carr. They weren’t added with the sole purpose of stopping the Giants’ receivers, but they are exactly what Dallas needs to cover Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Co. As for the New York Giants, check out how much pressure they apply on quarterback Tony Romo. Of course, the G-Men always attack the passer, but will the added responsibility of having to stop the run-happy Cowboys slow them down?
