Tonight the Dallas Cowboys will open the season against divisional rival the New York Giants. In reality this is probably the best way to start the season. Dallas will go into the match-up without Terry Glenn, Greg Ellis and Terence newman cornerback will be a game time decision. The Cowboys are going to need to get out to a quick start in this home opener.
Look for the Giants to try and get Brandon Jacobs off early in the running game to take some of the pressure off of Eli Manning. The Dallas defense needs to pressure Manning as much as possible. If they can force Manning to beat them they have a better chance which means shutting down Jacobs is a must.
On the offensively side of the ball the Cowboys need to do two things. First a big game out of Juliusw Jones is needed. The running game is very important as this takes pressure of Tony Romo. The second the Cowbys need to do is protect Tony Romo and give him time to throw the ball. If Romo has time he is a very good quarterback. Getting Terrell owens involved early is also a must as he loses interest when he doesn’t get his touches.
The Cowboys should play well and win around 27-10. the one thing though they have to be wary of is turnovers. They must protect the ball all season long if they hope to win consistently this year.
