Cowboys 24, Giants 17

Week 1

On the NFL's Opening Night, the favored defending champion Giants welcomed their NFC East rival Dallas to the Meadowlands, but were bested by the heroics of Tony Romo and the Cowboy offense. Romo outdueled the two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning, completing 22-of-29 passes for three touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 129.5. Dallas running back DeMarco Murray rushed for 131 yards on 20 carries and wideout Kevin Ogletree came out of nowhere for a breakout performance of 114 yards on eight grabs, two of which went for touchdowns.
