ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Eli Manning was missing his best option in his 200th consecutive start for the New York Giants.

And without still-hobbled receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to catch passes, the Giants offense sputtered in another season-opening loss against the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys.

“Obviously, he’s a tremendous player,” Manning said. “We’ve got players. We’ve got to play better than that.”
