The New York Giants are defending Super Bowl XLVI champions. They’ve won two Lombardi Trophy’s since the 2007 season. And they’re 7-2 against the Dallas Cowboys in their last nine meetings.

You got to get out there and do the same thing over and over again and be consistent. You know, this year we’re a different team and we’re going to see how it pans out this year.” Between the Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles, it’s like a broken record or an MP3 player stuck on repeat: “This year is different.” “This year is our year.” “Giants can’t do it again.” The irony here is that Kiwi didn’t tell Jones they will co

Justin Tuck: 'Pin everything' on Romo

The New York Giants players know they have a devastating pass rush — a group of speedsters that sacked Tony Romo six times in their last meeting with the Dallas Cowboys — but Justin Tuck believes the key to beating the 'Boys is by making sure Romo doesn't have a running game he can use "as a crutch." The All-Pro defensive end said the Giants need to take away...

Eli Manning Hooks Up With Dominick Hixon For Deep Jump Ball

Cowboys pull off stunner in opener

The Dallas Cowboys waited all year for another shot at the New York Giants. When they got it in the 2012 season opener, they were ready.

It won't make up for the New Year's Day loss that cost...

Kiwanuka: JPP can break record with 30 sacks

The New York Giants begin their title defense tonight, and one of the biggest reasons they were able to win it all last year is Jason Pierre-Paul. The 3rd round beast of a defensive end terrorized offenses, specifically QBs in limited reps. He started in only 12 of the 16 games he played in, and [...]

Opening Day- Dallas vs the GMen

Some opening day thoughts at the start of the 2012 season... 1) "I am a Jedi, like my father before me."  Yes, the Force runs strong in Eli's family. Eli can sense pass rushers that he cannot even see.  He has mastery of his weapons, including Cruz and Nicks.  Add Bradshaw, Wilson and a healthy TE, and Eli can be lethal.  2) "Fear is the path to the Dark...
