The defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants play host to the Dallas Cowboys in the 2012 NFL season opener tonight on WIBX 950.

The Dial Global Radio Network's coverage begins at 8:00 tonight, following a special two-hour NFL kickoff edition of Sportswatch.

The Giants ended last regular season with a 31-14 home victory over the Cowboys on New Year's Day to clinch the NFC East, beginning their impressive playoff run en route to the franchise's fourth Lombardi Trophy.

That loss knocked Dallas down to 8-8 and keeping Da 'Boys out of the postseason for the second straight year.
