The negative Dallas Cowboys rumors don’t end there, as many National Football League analysts are picking the Seattle Seahawks to represent the NFC in the #Super Bowl.
Dak Prescott and the Cowboys take on the Giants on Sunday Night Football. Elliott was the focal point of the offense, getting at least 20 carries in 12 games while rushing for 15 touchdowns and eclipsing 100 yards seven times, but was held to 162 yards on the ground in two meetings against the Giants.
While they deserve credit for doing so, don’t sleep on the Cowboys defense against them either. A monster group of defensive tackles led by Damon “Snacks” Harrison shut down run lanes. NY added more weapons this off-season to pair with OBJ. “We are going to move forward in that direction and we will see what happens in whether he gets to play or not”. But now Dallas’ top receiver is coming off his first full offseason since his All-Pro year in 2014, which his teammates and coaches believe will make a difference. The Giants were able to hold a team that averaged 26.3 points per game to that same number, total, in both games previous year.
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. remains questionable to play.
Less than 48 hours before the Giants open their season against the Cowboys, Odell Beckham Jr.’s status remains uncertain.
But the availability of Ezekiel Elliott, along with the momentum it brings the Cowboys may be just too much to overcome. Sustaining that elite pace will be hard, but the team’s play over the last half of the prior year lends hope. “We just need to take care of the ball, and this can be an explosive offense, one that can hopefully win us a championship”.
A similar situation occurred in the second Dallas game.
Dallas’s breakout 2016 was unexpected – the kind of turnaround that could only be engineered by two game-changing rookies and one of the league’s best offensive lines. This automatically created more low-percentage passes and limited Dez’s effectiveness. Part of this is because most teams play the Cowboys with a single safety in the deep middle. If Beckham does sit, the Giants will turn to Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard in their season opener against NFC East rival Dallas.
