Increased optimism Odell Beckham will play vs. Cowboys

Still expected to be a game-time decision, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that optimism regarding Beckham's Week 1 status has increased since Friday. He makes the defense go and is the clear leader of the unit. The streak ended in a 10-7 loss at NY that was easily the worst game for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Undoubtedly, you've been hearing a lot about the Giants "mastery" of Dallas past year.

Game Preview: It has been a less than ideal off-season for the Cowboys.

For the first time since Matt Bryant in 2002, the last Giants open the season with a kicker who has no prior experience in the regular season. He was only capable of doing light warm up drills. The Cowboys hold a comfortable advantage overall (62-46-2), but the Giants have won three straight. He had twice the amount of yardage as the next best receiver on his team a year ago.

In 2016, it was quarterback Dak Prescott's first start, only two weeks after Tony Romo went down with a preseason injury. Second-year safety Landon Collins was the spearhead for a much-improved secondary that helped the Giants defense finish second in the league in points allowed at under 18 points per game.

Expect a very close game. In fact, five of the last seven games have been decided by a field goal or less.

The Giants head into Jerry's World and AT&T Stadium on Sunday night looking to silence the crowd and grab a huge opening weekend victory against their division rivals in what is one of the most anticipated matchups of a busy opening weekend. It should add at least another touchdown to the Cowboys' total as the young running back is looking to take out his frustration over this disciplinary process on the field. I think the Giants win the game outright, so getting four is a bonus. Again, a lot of that depends on the availability of OBJ.

McAdoo emphatically stated earlier this week that Beckham's play would be a medical decision. Manning's 508 completions, 6,226 yards and 48 touchdowns against Cowboys are most of any Dallas opponent.

So, as it stands, Elliott's suspension should start in Week Two, when the Cowboys are set to face the Denver Broncos at home. The suspension stems from an alleged domestic violence claim from one of Elliott's ex-girlfriends, Tiffany Thompson .
