Huge Cowboys fan, but I predicted the Giants to roll last night. I knew the Cowboys upgraded at the corners but I wasn't expecting to get much of a contribution from Morris Claiborne until about half way through the season. He had a tough assignment in his first pro game with the responsibility of guarding Victor Cruz. I was shocked at how much of a difference adding Claiborne and Brandon Carr had on the Cowboys D last night. They did a great job and Eli was forced to hold the ball a little bit longer allowing Demarcus Ware to do what he does best.
The offensive line still gives me something to be concerned about but all in all they did ok protecting Romo against arguably the best pass rushing defense in the NFL. I'm hopeful for the season but the Giants do this every year and then start winning late in the season.
