The New York Jets welcome the Dallas Cowboys to MetLife Stadium in the first Sunday Night Football game of the season.

In what should be an emotional game on the 10-year anniversary of the September 11th attack, all eyes will be on New York.

Mark Sanchez will attempt to lead the Jets to their third AFC Championship in as many years, and with the addition of Plaxico Burress, will have a much bigger red-zone target. Burress will be playing in his first competitive game since the incident in which he shot himself in the leg.

On the Cowboys' side of the ball, Tony Romo will look to bounce back from an injury-plagued 2010, and leave behind the memories of a very disappointing season. The Cowboys have added some talent on defense, and it will be interesting to see how quickly they can gel together.

The game will be broadcast on national television on NBC, with kickoff set for 8:20 ET. Make sure to tune in early for pregame coverage, as well as what is sure to be a touching introduction.

The Jets come into the game as favorites, but that shouldn't fool anyone, as the Cowboys are loaded with talent. Miles Austin will take his turn on 'Revis Island', where many of the game's best receivers have disappeared.

Jason Garrett will coach his first game for the Cowboys without the interim tag, after going 5-3 the year before. Garrett replaced Wade Phillips halfway through the season, and Phillips is now the defensive coordinator for the Houston Texans.

The biggest storyline of the game will obviously be the emotional aspect, as all over the country today ceremonies have been held to honor those that lost their lives in the terrorist attacks.

Hope you follow along here as I will post updates on arguably the biggest game of the weekend. Feel free to chime in with your own comments below.
