The NFL’s opening Sunday is capped with a rematch of the 2012 Week 1 Sunday night feature, an NFC East clash between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.

The only difference is that tonight’s meeting comes in Big D.

Although the Giants were coming off a Super Bowl championship, Big Blue started its title defense season by dropping the home-opener to the Cowboys 24-17.  Ultimately both teams missed last season’s postseason.

The Giants open 2013 will their running game on the back of second-year ball-carrier David Wilson.

Ahmad Bradshaw is playing elsewhere and Wilson’s relief, Andre Brown, has a broken leg.

And you’ll notice a change on the offensive and defensive fronts, too.

Free agents Osi Umeniyora and Chris Canty signed with other clubs, and New York’s offensive line has two new faces because of injury – rookie Justin Pugh and James Brewer filling in for David Diehl and David Bass, and Kevin Boothe changing positions.

Other defensive injuries to Antrel Rolle, Stevie Brown (out for season) and Jason Pierre-Paul (back surgery) have had Big Blue’s D playing at under 100% all preseason long. But, Rolle and JPP may be in the game tonight.

The Cowboys look to defend their house against the G-Men for the first time since the $1Billion Cowboys Stadium – now named AT&T Stadium – opened in 2009 (Giants are 4-0 in Dallas since).
