Cowboys vs. Giants: New York's Biggest Winners and Losers from Week 1

The 24-17 final of the NFL's 2012 season opener between the reigning Super Bowl champion New York Giants and NFC East-rival Dallas Cowboys wasn't as close as the score indicates.

The Cowboys dominated the second half, scoring two of their three touchdowns, thanks in large part to DeMarco Murray, Miles Austin and Kevin Ogletree.

The matchup was a stalemate for much of the first half with Dallas taking the momentum via an Ogletree touchdown with 1:07 left in the first half.

From there, it was all Dallas, as Murray finished with 131 yards on the ground and Ogletree completed a career night by hauling in eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns.

The Giants defense was absent for basically the entire second half while the offense never got into a rhythm and moved the ball on the Cowboys' defense.
