New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning enters his 16th and possibly final season battling not only the Giants’ arch-rival Dallas Cowboys, but he also may be fighting for his job. Even the Giants.com site admits that the Giants “are X-number days away from someone other than Manning starting at quarterback.” But after a season in which he registered a mediocre passer rating of just 92.4 — good enough only for 21st in the NFL — Manning will need to prove himself every game, starting with the Sunday opener when the Giants, who placed last in the NFC East at 5-11 in 2018, take on the division-winning Cowboys, who won 10 against six losses, a game that will stream live from Texas.

On the Dallas side, another player will need to prove himself every game — but for very different reasons. Fourth-year running back Ezekiel Elliot signed a six-year, $90 million contract, making him the highest-paid ball-carrier in NFL history, according to The Washington Post.
Elliot has set a high standard for himself, leading the NFL in average yards per game each of the three years since the Cowboys selected him in the first round, 4th overall, out of Ohio State in the 2016 NFL Draft, according to Pro Football Reference. In both 2016 and 2018, Elliot also led in total rushing yards, with 1,631 and 1,434 respectively.
Of course, the Giants had a 1,307-yard rusher of their own last season, in rookie Saquon Barkley, who they picked 2nd overall in the 2018 draft out of Penn State. Containing Barkley will likely prove the key to victory, or defeat, for Dallas in Sunday’s showdown, according to the Cowboys’ site Inside The Star.
