NFL Week 1 Betting: Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants

In the first game of the regular season, two NFC East teams will get together at MetLife Stadium on Wednesday night. The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants will square off. The Giants are the defending divisional champions, along with Super Bowl Champions. Dallas fell a game short a season ago from tying for the division, and came away with an 8-8 record. These two teams will also meet again on October 28th. The Cowboys went 3-1 in pre-season, while New York split their four games.

The New York Giants return Eli Manning as their play caller. Manning now has two Super Bowl rings to put him at the top of quarterback chain in the NFL. Manning a season ago finished with 4,933 passing yards and 29 touchdowns. While Ahmad Bradshaw will be the main at the running back position for New York, they will miss the tough presence of Brandon Jacobs. New York was the worst rushing team in all of the NFL last season.

The Dallas Cowboys once again have a talented lineup behind quarterback Tony Romo. Head coach Jason Garrett knows that he has his work cut out to get the best out of his crew. Dallas a season ago saw their passing offense compiled nearly 260 yards per game. DeMarco Murray, in his second year out of Oklahoma is expected to have a huge season for the Cowboys. Dallas is looking for their tight end Jason Whitten to be a little shaky in the opener, as he missed all of the pre-season with an injury.
