Here's what you need to know this morning....
The Giants will begin preparing for their home opener against the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday at MetLife Stadium. They will practice today, Thursday and have their recovery day on Friday.
The Giants suffered only one injury on Sunday night in Dallas. OT Ereck Flowers turned an ankle and underwent an MRI on Tuesday.
DE Jason Pierre-Paul is reported to have less only seven complete fingers as a result of his July 4th fireworks mishap. Outside of his amputated right index finger, JPP is reportedly missing the top of both his right thumb and middle finger.
He posted a workout video on Instagram (see below post) revealing his right hand, but it is unclear how many fingers he has. He is, however, putting his left hand on the ground in his 3-point stance.
Hoping to put all the chatter stemming from Sunday night's confusion at the end of the game, RB Rashad Jennings wrote an open apology to QB Eli Manning on Tuesday (NY Post).
Flowers and safety Landon Collins, the Giants’ first two selections in this year’s NFL Draft, each started in Dallas. It was the first time the Giants’ first and second-round draft choices started the season opener as rookies since Aug. 31, 1997, when wide receiver Ike Hilliard (first round) and running back Tiki Barber (second) started in a victory over Philadelphia.
MLB Uani’ Unga became the first player with an interception in his Giants’ debut since safety Ryan Mundy on Sept. 8. 2013, also at Dallas. Before Unga, the last linebacker with an interception in his first game with the Giants was Vince Costello on Sept. 17, 1967 at St. Louis.
The Cowboys scored the game-winning points on an 11-yard pass from Tony Romo to Jason Witten with seven seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it is the first time a Giants opponent scored a go-ahead, game-winning touchdown with seven or fewer seconds remaining in the Super Bowl era (now in its 50th season).
