The defending super bowl champions New York Giants open up the season hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday night football live from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. The game starts at 8:30 pm on NBC (TV) and WFAN (Radio). Giants favorites over Cowboys. Spread is -3.5 points. My pick is the Giants. Finally! Football is back! The New York Giants will open up the 2012 campaign in MetLife Stadium hosting their rivals the Dallas Cowboys. A big game for both teams tomorrow night and it is important on who wins this game. It could impact the whole season for both sides. Here are the three keys on what the Giants need to do in order to start the season off as winners: (1) Giants defense must get after Tony Romo as he doesn't have his safety blanket Jason Witten who is out with a Lacarated spleen injury. Dallas's offensive line isn't that good and it gives the Giants D-Line an great chance of getting hits on Tony Romo who could be running for his life. (2) Eli Manning is coming off his second super bowl win of his NFL career and he needs to show to the whole football world that he is among the elite QB's in the NFL if not the best in football. If he can get everyone involved with no screwups happening to them on offense. They will beat Dallas. (3) Make Dallas run the football and rely on DeMarco Murray who could ben in for disaster since the Giants D-Line is one of the best in the NFL. If the Cowboys can't their passing game going on the night. Watch out! Injury Report: Giants: Out: CB Prince Amukamara (Ankle), DT Marvin Austin (Back), T James Brewer (Back) Questionable: LB Michael Boley (Hamstring), WR Hakeem Nicks (Foot), CB Jayrod Hosley (Turf Toe), T William Beatty (Back) Cowboys: Out: NT Jay Ratliff (Ankle), CB Mike Jenkins (Shoulder) Doubtful: TE Jason Witten (Spleen), S Danny McCray (Neck) Questionable: WR Andre Holmes (Knee), LB Kyle Wilber (Thumb) Final score will be Giants 31, Cowboys 17

Tony Romo storms off during media session

Tony Romo – What does Kevin Ogletree do for him?

The situation in Dallas for Tony Romo has been interesting lately with all of Dez Bryant’s issues, Miles Austin at less than 100%, Jason Witten’s spleen, Laurent Robinson leaving via free agency, etc.  I had a draft just two nights ago where Romo was drafted in the 9th round. (9th!)  That is completely and totally insane, but I suppose there were some reasons why people have...
