    k threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin on the third play of the game and the Cowboys sacked Eli Manning six times in a 20-13 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night.The Dallas defense was strong again Youth Anthony Brown Jersey , just as in an opening loss at Carolina, as the Cowboys (1-1) avoided the first 0-2 start in seven seasons under coach Jason Garrett.Manning and the Giants have started 0-2 for the fifth time in the past six seasons.After saying "challenge accepted" during the week to Giants safety Landon Collins' suggestion that New York had a better chance by forcing Prescott to throw, the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year hit Austin in stride behind cornerback Janoris Jenkins. The speedy receiver cut back to his right before trotting across the goal line at an angle."We definitely hear that," Prescott said. "I kind of said the challenge accepted, I said I accepted it. But I can tell you I wasn't the only one who accepted that challenge. This team accepted it. That offense accepted it. We wanted to go out there and just show you guys."Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott outgained Saquon Barkley in the first meeting in the pros between the former college rivals and high NFL draft picks. Elliott, who starred at Ohio State, rushed for 78 yards with a touchdown. Barkley, from Penn State, had just 28.Even Prescott outrushed Barkley, finishing with a career-high 45 yards on the ground while throwing for 160.Brett Maher had the first two field goals of his NFL career, including a 29-yarder after Damien Wilson forced a fumble on a sack of Manning and Taco Charlton recovered.The Cowboys shared the wealth on the sacks, with six different players recording a sack apiece: the linebacker Wilson, safety Kavon Frazier and defensive linemen Charlton, DeMarcus Lawrence, Antwaun Woods and Tyrone Crawford."He's been in this league for a long time Womens Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , he can read defenses, and to shake him up a little bit is always good," Crawford said.The Giants had questions with the offensive front, and they'll only grow after Manning finished two sacks shy of the most in his career. New York also lost center Jon Halapio, who was carted off with an air cast on his right leg in the third quarter.Manning converted a pair of fourth downs on sneaks, but the sacks helped keep the Giants from converting those into points. He was even hammered when he wasn't behind the line of scrimmage — on a hit by linebacker Jaylon Smith on a 1-yard gain before New York's first points on Aldrick Rosas' 28-yard field goal late in the third quarter."Eli's confident," coach Pat Shurmur said. "He's a pro and he battled throughout the game and I thought he did a good job. I sense confidence, yes."Prescott fooled the New York defense several times with fake handoffs to Elliott on keepers around end. The longest was a 15-yarder on Dallas' second possession, leading to Maher's first NFL field goal from 37 yards.For the second straight week, the Giants didn't get a touchdown until the fourth quarter. New York made it interesting when Michael Thomas recovered an onside kick after Manning's 18-yard scoring pass to Evan Engram with 1:27 remaining.The Giants settled for Rosas' 38-yard field goal to get within a touchdown with 11 seconds remaining, but the next onside kick went out of bounds.Manning finished 33 of 44 for 279 yards. Austin had two catches and led Dallas with 79 yards receiving.AIR TIMEAlthough Barkley was stifled in the running game, he led everybody with 14 catches for 80 yards. Odell Beckham Jr. had four grabs for 51 yards. Engram added seven for 67. "They just did a good job just getting some pressure and not getting a whole lot of time to get the ball down the field," Manning said.STILL TOUGH SLEDDINGThe quick strike in the passing game still didn't make life very easy on Elliott. He struggled to find much room outside of a 19-yarder on the second scoring drive. The touchdown was a churning 6-yard run for a 20-3 lead with 5:45 remaining.DELAYED DEBUTDallas tight end Rico Gathers was active for the first time in his third NFL season. The former Baylor basketball player was open in the end zone on one play, but Prescott overthrew him when pressure came. Gathers was targeted twice without a catch.INJURIESGiants: Punt returner Kaelin Clay injured an ankle in the second quarter and didn't return. He had another adventurous moment a week after his late muff cost the Giants a chance to rally against Jacksonville. He was indecisive on a punt, which bounced in front of and straight into him. He hung on to the ball. ... Eli Apple was sidelined in the second half because of a groin injury.Cowboys: LB Sean Lee was held out late with a sore hamstring Womens Travis Frederick Jersey , but coach Jason Garrett said he could have returned and should be fine next week.UP NEXTGiants: Another Texas trip to Houston.Cowboys: At Seattle. The NFL's Super Bowl ticketing policies will be put under a microscope this week when New Jersey's Supreme Court considers claims that the league violated state consumer fraud laws leading up to the 2014 game at MetLife Stadium.If Josh Finkelman's challenge succeeds and the case ultimately prevails as a class action, the NFL could be liable for millions in damages to him and other ticketholders, his attorney said."He was forced to pay thousands of dollars a ticket where the face value is $800," Bruce Nagel said. "People were paying five to 10 times the face value of the tickets. That's not right."Finkelman's lawsuit, filed in the weeks after Super Bowl XLVIII, cuts to the core of an issue that has bedeviled sports fans for decades: the league's practice of releasing roughly 1 percent of available tickets through a lottery, with the rest going to the teams, sponsors and other insiders.Finkelman claims the practice violates a New Jersey law — since repealed — that required 95 percent of tickets to be made available to the public.His suit was dismissed twice by a U.S. District judge sitting in New Jersey who said Finkelman hadn't demonstrated the NFL's policies had caused him economic harm, partly since he hadn't entered the lottery.But after Finkelman refiled the suit, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled last December that the suit could go forward and directed New Jersey's Supreme Court to hear arguments on the applicability of the state law. Those arguments are scheduled for Thursday morning.Finkelman "has overcome a very significant hurdle in that he's shown his legal standing to sue, meaning he's shown a cognizable injury," said Daniel Wallach, a Miami-based attorney specializing in sports industry law. "But he now has a second obstacle that must be overcome."In his amended suit, Finkelman cited research by University of San Francisco sports economist Daniel Rascher alleging that insiders are more likely to re-sell tickets through brokers, who are more likely to charge higher prices than fans would charge to other fans. The NFL prohibits fans who win tickets through a lottery from re-selling tickets.If more tickets were available to the public http://www.thecowboysfootballauthentic.com/geoff-swaim-jersey-authentic , the suit contends, the prices on the secondary market would be lower.The NFL called Rascher's theories speculative and wrote in a court filing that "there is simply no way of knowing whether the people and entities to whom the NFL distributed tickets to Super Bowl XLVIII were any less likely to sell their tickets on the secondary market than members of the general public would have been."An NFL spokesman didn't return a message seeking comment Wednesday.According to Nagel, 95 percent of the roughly 82,000 tickets to the game could be subject to damages calculated by the difference between their face value and what the secondary market charged. That potential figure, well into the tens of millions, would be trebled under rules governing class actions, he said.More hurdles await Finkelman if the state Supreme Court sides with him, however.He would have to persuade a federal judge to grant class-action status, and survive additional motions by the NFL to throw the case out. Then he would have to prevail in front of a jury, unless the league opts to settle out of court."To use a football phrase, the game is barely in the middle of the first quarter, and the NFL remains a prohibitive favorite," Wallach said.
