Week 1 Giants – Cowboys After an opening ceremony involving Super Bowl XXI MVP Phil Simms, Super Bowl XXV MVP Otis Anderson and All-Time Great Michael Strahan, the mood seemed to be set for the night, but in typical Giants fashion the defending Super Bowl Champions decided they had won already and instead were pushed around on both the offensive and defensive sides of the line of scrimmage due to lack of focus in my opinion. Tony Romo had a great night while having the better night of the two QB’s and found a new favorite target, for the night at least in Kevin Ogletree (New York Native) with 8 catches for 114 yds for 2 TDS. Eli Manning threw for 213 yds with no picks or tds while Victor Cruz had 3 drops. All in all the Cowboys put forth a better effort than the Giants.
