Behind a breakout performance from wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, who caught seven passes for 101 receiving yards and two touchdowns, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the New York Giants, 24-17, in a season-opening showdown at MetLife Stadium.

Dallas quarterback Tony Romo completed 22 of 39 passes for 307 passing yards and three touchdowns, including a 34-yarder to wide receiver Miles Austin that helped the Cowboys take a 24-10 lead with 6 minutes, 12 seconds reaming in the game.

With 2:36 to go, the Giants capped a 12-play, 79-yard drive with a nine-yard touchdown reception from tight end Martellus Bennett from quarterback Eli Manning to help trim Dallas' lead to 24-17.
