Martellus Bennett enjoys playing for the Giants far more than he enjoyed playing for the Cowboys. We are a mere six games into his first season with New York, and the tight end has already made that quite clear. Bennett spent four seasons with Dallas, but he says he has already established a better relationship with Eli Manning than he ever had with Tony Romo. More specifically, he no longer has to be the second girlfriend. “Me and Eli are a lot closer than I was with Romo,” Bennett told Jim Rome on CBS Sports Network according to the Dallas Morning News. “I think Romo is a great quarterback. And I think he’s done some great things for the Cowboys. But I just think his relationship with Witten is one of those special things they were able to build. “Being here, I’ve just been trying to build the same thing with Eli.

The New York Giants have activated defensive tackle Chris Canty from the PUP list and have placed running back Da’Rel Scott on season ending injured reserve after undergoing knee surgery.Canty had a nice week of practice and the Giants clearly feel like he’s ready to get back on the field.  I wouldn’t expect him to get a full work load since this will be his first game of the season. 

Jason Pierre-Paul sends a warning to Robert Griffin III

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul must feel pretty good about himself after he broke out of his funk and terrorized the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Cofield, Boothe will be familiar foes

They entered the NFL together in the 2006 draft class and quickly became starters for their respective teams as rookies. Barry Cofield began laying the groundwork to establish himself as one of the NFL's top defensive tackles. Kevin Boothe got cut by Oakland the following year.

Bradshaw Questionable For Sunday

This damn foot issue again Juan… Ahmad Bradshaw was limited in practice this week and now is questionable for Sunday’s game.  I would think he plays, but will not get even close to the workload he has the past 2 weeks when he has been a top play at RB. Andre Brown has been cleared and is ready to go.  David Wilson is gaining the confidence of the coaching staff and should also...

Romo: Cowboys not playing like they practice

IRVING, Texas For the Dallas Cowboys, practice hasn't made perfect. At least that's the impression given by quarterback Tony Romo in a media session Thursday at Valley Ranch.

While being careful not to criticize teammates, Romo said the Cowboys work on both in practices...

Morgan told FOXSports.com that he himself is dealing...

Tony Romo isn't the type of quarterback to call out his teammates, even if he thought they did something incorrectly.
