The New York Giants ruled wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. inactive for their Week 1 game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Beckham was ruled questionable and a game-time decision earlier in the week after dealing with a sprained ankle suffered in New York's second preseason game.

Though the 24-year-old Beckham told SNY's Taylor Rooks on Friday that he had been feeling a lot better, the Giants will enter the regular season without their leading receiver.

While head coach Ben McAdoo said Beckham was getting treatment throughout the week and was "doing everything he can to get himself well."

THE GAME

The Giants (0-0) at the Dallas Cowboys (0-0) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 8:30 p.m. ET

THE WEATHER

It'll be sunny and hot all day in Texas, and dip into the comfortable 70s at night. But they can always close the roof if they want.

WHAT IT MEANS

Opening Day is mostly a day of overreaction that doesn't mean much at all. The Giants beat the Cowboys in last year's opener, and the Cowboys won the division anyway. That said, the fast start was surely a boost to Ben McAdoo in his first season. Regardless of all that, the Giants would love to remind the Cowboys that beating them twice last year wasn't a fluke, and the Cowboys would love to exact some revenge and remind the Giants who won the division. Aside from those mind games, try not to overreact to Week 1.

Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) traveled with the team to Dallas on Saturday, per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

Beckham is still questionable for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys but is feeling a lot better, he told SNY's Taylor Rooks on Friday.

"I have a long evening of rehab, then we'll see," Beckham said earlier this week.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brandon Marshall has never caught a pass from Eli Manning in an actual football game. But he fully expects his first one will be coming on Sunday night.

Despite missing the last two preseason games with an injured shoulder, Marshall promised "I'll be out there" for the Giants opener in Dallas on Sunday night. He wouldn't go into specifics about the injury that the Giants have kept shrouded in mystery, and he wouldn't even say that it's completely healed.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The status of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is very much undecided for Week 1, and it's possible the Giants will begin game-planning on Wednesday without knowing it for sure.

But that doesn't worry Ben McAdoo, who is putting his faith in a Giants defense that ranked third last season against the run.

"All backs run the same," McAdoo said, "when there's nowhere to run."

Daily News Live: Ezekiel Elliott 00:02:59
Daily News Live reacts to the news that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended six games for violating the NFL's conduct policy.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will be suspended for the first six games of the 2017 season under the NFL's domestic violence policy, the NFL announced Friday.

Among the games Elliott will miss include Dallas' Week 1 matchup with the New York Giants, Week 3 game against the Arizona Cardinals and Week 5 game against the Green Bay Packers.

A former girlfriend of Elliott reportedly accused him of assaulting her multiple times in a span of a week in July 2016, however charges were reportedly not filed against Elliott.

"Even when a player is not charged with a crime, 'he may still be found to have violated the [league's personal conduct] policy if the credible evidence establishes that he engaged in conduct prohinited by this Personal Conduct Policy," the NFL wrote in a letter to Elliott.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV:

Players always talk about the non-financial intangibles when they enter free agency, about their desire to find the right situation and play for a winner. But the truth about free agency often is this: Money talks.

Still, the real top players in the market sometimes have choices to make when the money is close, and that's where things could get interesting for Mike Maccagnan and the New York Jets. He's got the money to spend to begin the makeover his roster (approximately $37 million in cap space and maybe more to come). But if his top targets end up with multiple, lucrative options, does the Jets GM have the rest of the package to lure those players to New York?

It could be an interesting question right off the bat with a report already emerging that the Chicago Bears are ready to battle the Jets for free-agent quarterback Mike Glennon. Not that the Bears are in great shape -- they're coming off a 3-13 season and have missed the playoffs the last six seasons just like the Jets. Maybe Glennon, or any player, could make the argument that the Jets are the more attractive spot between the two.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The New York Giants' road to Super Bowl LI begins in Green Bay, the site of two of the greatest triumphs of Eli Manning's career.

Their trip to Lambeau Field became official hours after the Giants finished up their 11-5 season with an impressive 19-10 win in Washington on Sunday afternoon. When the Packers (10-6) defeated the Detroit Lions 31-24 Sunday night, they clinched the NFC North title and the No. 4 seed in the NFC. That set up a date with the fifth-seeded Giants in the wild-card round Sunday at 4:40 p.m. ET.

While the New York Giants are still alive in the postseason and head to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers in the NFC wild-card round, their 2017 opponents became official on Sunday.

The Giants will have four road games on the West Coast next season, traveling to face the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. 

In addition to home and road games against their division rivals, New York will travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next year.

The Packers, who have won six in a row, finished 10-6 and are the No. 4 seed following their 31-24 win over the Lions on Sunday at Ford Field.

With a no-huddle offense and no-fooling-around defense, the New York Giants snapped the Cowboys' 11-game winning streak with a 10-7 victory Sunday night, preventing Dallas from clinching the NFC East.

Dallas (11-2) hadn't lost since the season opener against the Giants (9-4), who solidified their position in the NFC playoff chase as the top-wild card team. New York still hopes to catch Dallas in the division, and it can thank a stingy, aggressive defense for still having that opportunity.

Missing star defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, the Giants couldn't stop rookie sensation Ezekiel Elliott from rushing for 107 yards. But New York's pressure stymied the other Cowboys rookie standout, quarterback Dak Prescott, blanked receiver Dez Bryant until 2:13 remained - he fumbled away the ball on that play - and held Dallas to one conversion in 15 third-down attempts.

THE GAME: The Dallas Cowboys (11-1) vs. the Giants (8-4) at the Meadowlands on Sunday, Dec. 11 at 8:25 p.m. ET

THE WEATHER: Welcome to winter! The temperature at kickoff should be just above freezing, but with even light Meadowlands winds it'll feel colder. Much colder. Oh, and good news! Snow is in the forecast. Right now it's not supposed to start until after midnight, so it won't be a factor unless there's overtime. But hey, you never know.

A late-season Giants-Cowboys matchup usually has playoff implications for either one or both of the clubs and this year is no different. The Cowboys (11-1) are sitting atop the NFC East with a very comfortable three game lead over the 8-4 Giants with four games remaining.

The Giants' loss in Pittsburgh on Sunday put a damper on this week's showdown with Dallas in more ways than one. It pretty much handed the Cowboys the division and put the Giants in wild card mode, a position in which they hold the top berth at the moment.

The Giants' 21-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night completed a clean sweep for the NFC East this weekend. All four teams won close ballgames to keep the order in the division for at least another week. The NFC East is the only one of the NFL's eight divisions where all four clubs have winning records.

First place Dallas (8-1, 2-1 in the division) won their eighth straight game, a thrilling 35-30 victory over the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 114 yards with two touchdowns, including the game-winning 32-yard score with nine seconds remaining and had 95 receiving yards with a touchdown.

The New York Giants had seen this horror flick before. Five times last season, they had a lead in the fourth quarter in a game they eventually lost. No other team in NFL history had blown more fourth-quarter leads. And every game came down to one first down they couldn't get or one defensive stop they couldn't make.

In the first game of the Ben McAdoo era on Sunday, the Giants completely flipped the script.

Eli Manning threw for three touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Victor Cruz in his first game in nearly two years, and the New York Giants beat the Dallas Cowboys 20-19 Sunday.

The Giants (1-0) won the debut of coach Ben McAdoo after 12 years and two Super Bowl titles under Tom Coughlin while spoiling the first game for Dallas' Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.

Because of Tony Romo's back injury, Prescott and Elliott were the first rookie quarterback-running back combo to start an opener for the Cowboys since Roger Staubach and Calvin Hill in 1969.

Defensive coordinator Stave Spagnuolo will get a chance to redeem himself after overseeing one of the worst defenses in the Giants' nine-decade history last year. On Thursday, he was asked if he felt like a kid in a candy store.

The Friday after Thanksgiving is always a laid-back day with very little excitement. This year, there is no excitement in the land of the Giants. They are officially out of the play off picture at 3-8 and are headed into NFL obscurity in a season where most teams are talking about how they can still grab a playoff spot.

The Giants will be practicing today in preparation for their trip to Jacksonville. They will head down to Florida tomorrow to play perhaps one of the NFL's most meaningless games of the year. FOX is only televising the game in the Jacksonville and New York markets, with former Giant David Diehl providing color commentary alongside a play-by-play man that I'm sure most Giant fans have never heard of, Justin Kutcher.

The Giants know what it's like to be in free fall, having lost six in a row to start the 2013 season. After a 3-2 start this year, five consecutive losses has them in free fall again. Head coach Tom Coughlin, who never surrenders, never gives up the ship was asked to compare last year's skein to this year's:

"Keep fighting, keep fighting, keep fighting, that is all it takes, one game at a time, bounce back. Again, it is about all of those eyes that look at me on Wednesday morning, I am thinking about them, quite frankly, trying to bring them through the disappointment toward the next opponent."

The Giants will be down in Dallas this Sunday to face the Cowboys and their top-ranked rushing game, featuring RB DeMarco Murray who leads the NFL in rushing with 785 yards -- a full 243 yards more than the next highest rusher (Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell (542)).

Much has to do with Murray's health but a great deal of credit for their success in the run game is going to the offensive line, currently considered the league's best. The Cowboys are averaging 160.1 YPG on the ground, tops in the NFL and are third in time of possession (33:51 minutes per game) and first in third-down conversion percentage and first downs per game.

The Cowboys have been gradually building their offensive line over the past few seasons. The group of LT Tyron Smith, LG Ronald Leary, C Travis Frederick, RG Zack Martin and RT Doug Free have become the talk of the NFL.

For the first time in five weeks, the Giants defense will be matched up against a veteran quarterback with several offensive weapons at his disposal. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell understands that Big Blue has had a favorable schedule over the past couple of games, with a slew of backups and rookies taking snaps, but this week against Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys, the defense will have to be prepared.

One thing that Fewell emphasized strongly to the media on Thursday was the need for the Giants defense to not get too excited against their NFC East rival. While many are calling this the Giants Super Bowl, as they sit just two games back in the division and will tie Dallas in the standings with a win on Sunday, Fewell needs his unit to keep their cool.

"I thought the preparation yesterday was very focused.? There was some learning going on today and I could tell our guys are pumped about playing this football game, we just can?t get overexcited," said Fewell. "We just have to stay within ourselves. ?I think we?re focusing much better. I think the purpose of us going out and because we?re behind in this race, we?re going out with that purpose of winning a football game, no matter what."

Dallas Cowboys

Jimmy:?They did nothing in terms of outside free agents. The only guy that may see the field at all would be Justin Durant, who may start at SLB, but will be the first guy off the field in most sub-packages. There?s a sense that a bunch of their draft picks will see action right away. I don?t see it that way. Their first-round pick Travis Frederick should start at C from Day One, but aside from him, I?m not seeing how any of their other picks are going to have immediate impact roles as rookies.

As you have probably heard, QB Tony Romo signed a controversial contract extension with the Cowboys yesterday. The deal is a seven-year, $119.5 million commitment. The deal contains $55 million guaranteed, including a $25 million signing bonus and Romo's first-year base salary. The breakdown:

The latest dope form the cap-strapped NFC East as only our colleague Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast can tell it....

The Giants signed kicker Josh Brown, ending Lawrence Tynes? run with the Giants. He got two rings out of it, so good for him. Don?t be surprised if the Giants continue to address the kicker position in the draft. The guy that I would keep an eye on is Caleb Sturgis of Florida, who was absolutely murdering the ball at the East-West Shrine Game practices.

The Giants hosted Jasper Brinkley, but he left to go visit the Cardinals. I can?t say that I know anything about Brinkley?s game, but the overwhelming theme in reading up on him quickly is that he wouldn?t be much of an upgrade over Chase Blackburn, a player who shouldn?t have been starting in the NFL in the first place.
