Giants vs Cowboys live

New York Giants. It was confirmed on Tuesday night that star running back Ezekiel Elliott will play in the season opener as the legal battle between the NFL and the NFLPA ensues to decide whether or not he can be suspended.

For one night at least the drama is put on hold and Elliott will set out to defend his 2016 NFL rushing title. As a rookie the fourth overall pick rushed for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns, but had one bad game all year — the season opener against the Giants. In his professional debut Elliott had just 2.6 yards per rush and managed only 51 yards. He redeemed himself later in the year, but the Cowboys themselves lost both games to the Giants.

The Giants will head south to Texas for a Week 1 contest against the Cowboys; the broadcast begins at 8:30 p.m. ET and will be carried nationwide by NBC (live stream).

Eli Manning, a longtime competitor for the title of best quarterback in the division, will have to fend off a challenge from a second-year competitor. Dak Prescott lit the league on fire as a rookie, taking advantage of Tony Romo’s latest (and, it turned out, final) injury to start all 16 games for the NFC’s No. 1-seeded team. After emerging as an MVP candidate in his very first year, he’ll have to prove he can escape a sophomore slump and hang with Manning on a national stage Sunday night.
