Ezekiel Elliot's Return Highlights Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants

Ezekiel Elliot's Return Highlights Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants

What will happen this time? Postponing your court date doesn't mean the charges disappear. Part of this is because most teams play the Cowboys with a single safety in the deep middle. His fantasy owners should roll with another option in Week 1.

With the Cowboys losing just three regular season games, it's impressive that NY was the reason for two of them. New York's coaching will also look to second-year receiver Sterling Shepard to step up his play if Beckham is sidelined. The Cowboys have to be careful not to get too confident.

What will be the difference Sunday night at AT&T Stadium? This year, both franchises are coming off of huge 2016 seasons.

Here's a rundown of tonight's Giants-Cowboys game. NY added more weapons this off-season to pair with OBJ.

Those are important numbers compared to a Cowboys offense that likes to be explosive. NY isn't ruling him out entirely, but they are not banking on him being to go in this one.

That will make it tough for Dak Prescott to stretch the field with Dez Bryant. The Giants should expect to win. Fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott took care of the running game, leading the National Football League in rushing with 1,631 yards behind Dallas' decorated offensive line. Set Cowboys rookie records with 15 touchdowns rushing and 16 total. And he did all of this as a rookie. Quarterback Eli Manning does not have the arm strength he once had and will throw the inopportune pick about once a game. The Giants have a recovery day Friday and will run a short practice at 85 percent on Saturday. In his professional debut Elliott had just 2.6 yards per rush and managed only 51 yards. It wound up being his lowest output of the season; he never gained fewer than 80 yards in any game after that. Maybe there is a miscommunication in the Cowboys young secondary. DE Jason Pierre-Paul seventh in franchise history with 50 sacks. The second meeting was in the midst of a mini end-of-year slump.

So much has been written about Elliott it's easy to forget about the other offensive superstar in this game. So it was nice to see him keep getting better with that.

"I wouldn't count it out", is what Beckham said Wednesday. But don't be fooled; Marshall is aging, leaving Beckham the one true deep threat on this Giants team.

While the Giants will wait and see if the star receiver is cleared for Sunday's Week 1 game, New York's offense is still loaded with weapons even if No. 13 can't suit up. Giants have won three straight in series, matching their longest since 2009-10. Before that Dallas reeled off five consecutive victories over the Giants.

Not only is Ezekiel Elliott playing in this game, he'll be playing the whole season just as I predicted.

The best Giants teams have been built around defense, and previous year they found their swagger on the defensive end once again on their way to an 11-5 record and a wild card berth.
