Odell Beckham Jr. unlikely to play Sunday night

The New York Giants head down to Arlington to take on the Dallas Cowboys for the first Sunday Night Football game of the season. Tonight the New England Patriots take on the Kansas City Chiefs on NBC, and this weekend the Dallas Cowboys take on the New York Giants.

Beckham's presence on the field, even in a limited fashion, would be huge for the Giants, who are up against a secondary rebuilt by the Cowboys this offseason. Dallas won just one game in their first eight tries, but did get two ties from December, 1960 to October, 1963. The NFL odds for the game have the Cowboys favored to pick up the win. The defense was so stout that the Giants were able to overcome an unusually pedestrian offense, which was hampered by a sputtering running game and only truly came to life when the ball was in the hands of superstar receiver Odell Beckham Jr. More importantly, the Giants offensive line must protect Perkins and Eli Manning for the Giants offense to reach its full potential. Sterling Shepard would stand to benefit the most if Beckham is forced to sit. Sep. Their top-ranked rush defense should stymie a Giants running attack that's hardly intimidating.

OR rides explosive first half to 42-35 win over Nebraska
The Huskers offense, though, went three-and-out and punted to OR , which took possession with 10:10 remaining until halftime. New quarterback Tanner Lee threw for two scores and no interceptions in his Nebraska debut, but forced a few throws as well.

Not only is Ezekiel Elliott playing in this game, he'll be playing the whole season just as I predicted. "In the third year in the system - not all the guys have been here three years - but I expect them to think if they are in graduate school with the scheme".

"I'm extremely comfortable with him", Lee said. The diminutive receiver led the team in receptions a year ago with 75, making him an especially effective play in PPR leagues.

Cubs, Brewers set to meet at Wrigley Field
Nelson was the winning pitcher, and his 2017 season comes to an end with the pitcher having won each of his last three starts. Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon.

The questions for Dallas are all on defense. They also lost starters and depth in the defensive backfield, but should still field a solid group of starters. While every member of the Giants who is back following last season's disappointing playoff loss to Green Bay is hungry to earn another shot in the tournament, Beckham's internal drive has been burning since one of the worst nights of his otherwise fantastic football life.
