New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys, Week 1

It is a promising sign, but Beckham is still at best a game-time decision.

"I'm extremely comfortable with him", Lee said.

The best Giants teams have been built around defense, and previous year they found their swagger on the defensive end once again on their way to an 11-5 record and a wild card berth. But even beyond that unit, there were concerns with predictable personnel, play-calling and a less than-stellar ground game.

Should Beckham be deemed not healthy enough to play, second-year receiver Roger Lewis and veteran wideout Brandon Marshall are expected to fill the void. The Giants got to the Dallas 37, but head coach Ben McAdoo elected to punt on fourth-and-1. 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.

Giants No. 1 receiver Odell Beckham may or may not be on the field on Sunday after missing a week of practice while recovering from an ankle sprain suffered during the preseason. Landon Collins, Eli Apple, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins are four reasons why NY has one of the best defensive backfields in the NFL. The Giants' defensive line was built to compete against the Cowboys' offensive line.

Giants are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on fieldturf. But the Giants have played Dallas with a lot of split safeties, meaning the middle is the most vulnerable area of the field.

Where the game could be won is on the other side of the ball. His 61-yard touchdown catch proved the difference the last time these teams played in the regular season. If he can limit mistakes once again, relying on short passes and the availability of Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants still have a chance.

Without Beckham the following week at Minnesota, the Giants were embarrassed, 49-17, with Eli Manning tying a season-high with three interceptions, while completing 15-of-29 passes and finishing with a 50.7 passer rating.
