Odell Beckham Jr. unlikely to play Sunday night

Odell Beckham Jr. unlikely to play Sunday night

Only one time since the 2012 season has the winning team done so by more than a touchdown. The Giants have one of the best in the game on their sideline in mercurial wideout Odell Beckham Jr., but his status for the game is in question after missing practice Wednesday and Thursday due to a left ankle injury sustained in a preseason game against Cleveland. Additionally, safety Landon Collins has developed into a versatile and dynamic playmaker on the back end, helping in both the run and pass game. Sources told NFL Network that Beckham is a game-time decision, but there is more optimism today than there was on Friday.

What will happen Sunday night when the New York Giants face the Dallas Cowboys? NY isn't ruling him out entirely, but they are not banking on him being to go in this one.

The first meeting last season was Prescott's first game as a pro.

The New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game can also be live streamed by subscribing to NFL Game Pass.

Stick with the running game: The Cowboys are known for their ability to run the ball with Elliott and their offensive line.

Offseason pickup Brandon Marshall, a former No. 1 receiver in his own right, will likely see an increased role Sunday night. Those are really good receivers.

Series Notes: The Cowboys have dominated the Giants in this division rivalry. They have more than enough talent to fill in for Beckham as Eli Manning's favorite targets. He surpassed the 1,300-yard mark all three years and is coming off a 2016 campaign in which he tallied a career-high 101 catches for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns.

"Well he is obviously a great player and other guys are going to have to step up there", Sullivan said when asked how the game plan would change with or without Beckham.

But the availability of Ezekiel Elliott, along with the momentum it brings the Cowboys may be just too much to overcome. Add in home-field advantage for the Cowboys and it's easy to see a silly Manning mistake down the stretch handing Dallas an important early-season victory.
