Cowboys at Giants
When/where: 8:30, MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J.
TV/radio: Ch. 8, 98.7-FM, 1010-AM
The Dallas defense was exposed against the Giants last season, giving up an average of 34 points in two meetings. Are the Giants just as lethal this season? And is the Cowboys' defense any better? Look for home field to be a considerable advantage as the Giants begin their Super Bowl title defense. A side note: New York's early start gives it 10 days to prepare for a Week 2 meeting against the Bucs.
Holder's prediction: Giants 27, Cowboys 23
