The 2012 NFL season is officially underway as the defending Superbowl Champs New York Giants met rival Dallas Cowboys yesterday night in the Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey.
The Giants were not only the favorite to win the game but also considered a favorite to repeat as football champions. But the Cowboys put a dent in those plans as they won the first game of the season 24 – 17.
If history has anything to do with it, this isn’t a good sign for the Giants. This was the first time the defending Super Bowl champs lost their opening game since the 1999 season.
Here is a look back at the action from the opening night of the NFL season.
