Giants vs. Cowboys: Live Updates, Score and Highlights for Sunday Night Football
New York GiantsvsDallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys snapped a three-game losing streak to the New York Giants in a defensive-dominant 19-3 victory. Tight end Jason Witten surpassed Michael Irvin as the franchise leader in receiving yards. Overall, the Cowboys offense didn't operate like a well-oiled machine, but the Giants struggled to move the ball without wideout Odell Beckham Jr. in the lineup. Going forward, New York must improve its pass protection to allow quarterback Eli Manning more time to dissect defenses from the pocket.

The Giants Haven't Scored 20 Points in a Game Since November 27
The Giants haven't eclipsed the 20-point mark since Week 12 in the previous season. Even with Odell Beckham, the offense struggles to put points on the board. It's time to balance the attack with a solid ground game and improved offensive line play on the edges.
So, You're Saying There's a Chance?
It's only one game in the books, and Odell Beckham Jr. will return sooner than later. The Giants will live to play another down, and it won't look as ugly as tonight.
Anthony Brown Snatches One from Roger Lewis
Brown undercuts the slant and hangs onto the football for a critical takeaway. The Giants' comeback bid slowly fades late in the fourth quarter.
Slow Motion for Me
Cole Beasley makes the Week 1 highlight reel using his back and sticky gloves.
You Want a Highlight? Beasley Gives You a Highlight 😱
Beasley completes a circus catch near the sideline by pinning the ball to his back, top that!
Can You Name This Mystery Wide Receiver?
Manning can't find Brandon Marshall with a compass. The new Giants receiver doesn't have a single catch with two targets through 48 minutes.
Cowboys Still Dominant 16-3
The Giants just hit the on button for the offense in the third quarter. They'll attempt to overcome a 13-point deficit in the fourth quarter.
Dak ➡ Dez
Bryant shrugs off a tackles and cross midfield, that's strength and agility on display.
Steps in the Right Direction?
Giants' 1st half possession: 9:27 Giants' last drive: 9:44
Charles Tapper Crushes Manning
The Giants possessed the ball for nearly 10 minutes to start the third quarter, but Tapper's sack backs up the offense. Manning throws short on third down and settles for a field goal.
To say the Giants need a second-half spark is an understatement.
Pay This Man Whatever He Wants
Giants' putrid offense through 1st half:
-2 first downs -50 yards -2.6 yards per play -0 points
Beckham proves he's worth a massive deal without playing a down tonight.
Landon Collins Is All Over the Field Tonight
He may need to score a defensive touchdown to help the offense.
Bobby Hart Isn't Having a Good Night
Manning can't settle in the pocket because his head is on a constant swivel.
Witten Catches His 64th Touchdown as a Cowboy
The Play-action fake makes this look so easy.
The Ageless Wonder Jason Witten Scores 🙌
On the night he passed Michael Irvin as the Cowboys' all-time leader in receiving yards, Witten scores the first touchdown of the game.
Scandrick Done for the Night
First-round pick Chidobe Awuzie has lined up on the outside with Anthony Brown in the slot in Scandrick's absence.
Is It Feeding Time for Giants Wide Receivers?
The Cowboys lost three veteran defensive backs during free agency. Scandrick goes to the locker room, which means more work for second-year cornerback Anthony Brown and rookie cornerback Chidobe Awuzie.
Giants Focus on the Ground Attack
The Cowboys have pressured Manning through the first quarter. Running back Paul Perkins took a few carries on the drive to neutralizr the rush.
Congratulations to Jason Witten!
On his last catch, Witten passed Michael Irvin for franchise leader in receiving yards (11,906).
Down Goes Prescott 👊
The Giants' vaunted defensive line shows why they should be respected. Olivier Vernon charges in for the sack. He the team with 8.5 sacks last year.
A Look a Brice Butler with the Extension
Butler put together an impressive offseason. Prescott likes to spread the ball, which may allow Butler to carve out a role in the offense.
Cowboys Pass-Rushers Putting Manning on Skates
DeMarcus Lawrence has been a disruptor off the edge. Bobby Hart struggling at right tackle.
Key Matchup Tonight
Dez Bryant vs. Janoris Jenkins
Last time around, Jenkins put the clamps on Bryant.
Giants on a Quick 3-and-out
DeMarcus Lawrence played nine games in the previous season and only sacked the quarterback once. He's off to a quick start for 2017.
Something to Watch Early
Surprisingly, Cole Beasley led the team in targets (98) and receptions (75) and receiving yards (833) last year. The passing attack should be ok if Williams misses several snaps.
The Alabama Product Makes the Start
Tomlinson logged 5.5 tackles for a loss and three sacks as a senior at Alabama.
Cowboys Offense Will Take the Field First
Did quarterback Dak Prescott's connection with wideout Dez Bryant grow over the offseason?

The ESPN Sunday Morning Countdown Crew Goes with the Giants
Dez Getting Loose
The Cowboys hope Dez Bryant stays healthy. He's missed 10 games over the past two seasons. Ezekiel Elliott is the offensive engine, but a star wideout at his best should put the Cowboys over the top.
Who's Ready?? 🏈
First Sunday Night Football showdown for the year and the first of many must-watch games!
Jaylon Smith's Regular-Season Debut
Smith tore his ACL and LCL at Notre Dame in a Fiesta Bowl game in January of 2016. He took the field against the Colts and Raiders during the preseason. He's set to see regular-season action for the first time against the Giants.
"We'll Get 'Em Next Week Odell"
The NFL season isn't a sprint, it's a marathon. It's unwise for Beckham to risk further injury for one game against a division rival. Ian Rapoport foresees the fourth-year wideout playing next week against the Detroit Lions.
Darren McFadden Is Inactive 👀
With Ezekiel Elliott playing, the Cowboys will go without Darren McFadden, who saw extensive work during the preseason.

There's Optimism for Odell Beckham Jr.'s Ankle
Beckham suffered the injury in the second preseason game on August 21. The Giants will play against the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football on September 18, which marks four weeks.
The Giants also added Brandon Marshall who's still a big viable target in the passing attack. Rookie tight end Evan Engram caught six passes for 75 yards during the preseason. Quarterback Eli Manning may try to establish an early rapport with the rookie tight end out of Mississippi.
Odell Beckham Jr. Out for Sunday's Matchup vs. Cowboys
Odell Beckham Jr., the one-handed catch wonder, will miss Sunday's game with a sprained ankle. The Giants passing attack will take a significant hit without him. Wideouts Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard will see a lot of passes thrown their way.
