Giants vs. Cowboys Game: Time, TV schedule and live stream free info

The Dallas Cowboys Game desperately needed to find a reliable backup for quarterback Tony Romo, and as rookie Dak Prescott started to shine in the preseason and fans of the team began to get comfortable, that backup was called into action.

Dallas Cowboys Game

Romo is out with an injury, well before anybody expected when Prescott was named the primary backup. The Cowboys have shuffled things a little — Jameill Showers was released and then signed to the practice squad after they brought in veteran Mark Sanchez — but it’s very much the Prescott show on Sunday when the Cowboys begin their regular season with an NFC East rivalry game against the New York Giants.

It’s unclear how long Romo will be out with his back injury, but the one saving grace is that the division doesn’t look like it’s gotten terribly stronger than it has been in recent years. It’s been up for grabs for the past several seasons now and Prescott may only need to play average football to keep the Cowboys in it.

But all other things being equal, it’s hard to imagine Prescott and Dez Bryant being able to keep up with the likes of Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham is one of the most explosive players in the NFL and while Manning has been inconsistent at times, when he’s on his game he’s really on his game.

This is all predicated on whether Prescott can even get the ball out, as the Giants have a ton of capital invested in their defensive line. Jason Pierre-Paul will be looking to be even better so much further removed from his fireworks injury, and then there are the guys next to him who are going to be champing at the bit to get at Prescott early and often on Sunday.

These two teams opened their seasons in the same fashion last year, and things did not go well for the Giants. Well, they did — to a point. The Giants held a 23-20 lead and were all the way at the Dallas 4-yard line with under two minutes remaining. Two ill-fated run plays and clock confusion that saw Manning throw the ball away at a crucial moment forced the Giants to settle for a field goal.

Naturally, Romo led the Cowboys on a six-play, 72-yard drive to score and take the victory. It launched a terrible Giants season that saw many fourth-quarter meltdowns of similar make, and one that saw the departure of head coach Tom Coughlin at the end of the season after 12 years at the helm.

Clearly, the Giants are hoping things go a bit better this time around.

Throughout the offseason, acquiring a primary backup and potential future replacement to Tony Romo has been considered the top priority of the Dallas Cowboys. Romo has an injury history and the Cowboys have been left high and dry due to those injuries in the past, and there were reports that Jerry Jones was upset the team missed out on rookie Paxton Lynch in the NFL Draft.

But the Cowboys did take a quarterback, Dak Prescott, and were ecstatic with his play in the preseason. It looked like the Cowboys found their backup, giving them some security, but when Romo went down with an injury in the third preseason game, it became clear that Prescott would be getting a lot of playing time a lot sooner than the team wanted.

Prescott is now the team’s starter, and Romo will not be ready for the start of the season. So rather than starting the fourth preseason game against the Houston Texans, and rather than play the bulk of that game in an extended look for the coaching staff, Prescott will now not see the field at all.

Suddenly, he’s a starter and will need to be protected, not risking injury in what is generally considered a meaningless fourth preseason game. As a rookie who is still very raw, some thought there might be a chance at him playing. The Cowboys are taking no risks though, and Prescott will be on the sidelines when Thursday’s game gets underway from AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Jameill Showers is expected to start the game for the Cowboys, and he should play most of the game, if not the whole thing.

For the Texans, backup Tom Savage will be starting and should get plenty of playing time. Brock Osweiler, despite getting a lucrative free agent contract this offseason, is still relatively unproven and how the players behind him — Savage and Brandon Weeden — perform is still very important.

Osweiler will have a big, big leash this season, but then again that’s what the Texans said last season before switching quarterbacks several times between Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett. This will likely be a big game for Weeden, who hasn’t played much since an injury that forced him out of last season.

Thursday’s game is set for 8 p.m. ET and will not be broadcast nationally. There will be a live stream available via NFL Game Pass, and for local television options, read on.
