- Associated Press - Wednesday, September 5, 2012

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The Super Bowl champion New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys were tied 0-0 after one quarter Wednesday night in the NFL season opener.

The Giants kept the Cowboys off the board with a strong defensive stand. Facing a fourth-and-inches from the Giants 37, the Cowboys went for it and came up short when Lawrence Vickers was stopped for no gain.

The Giants' best drive ended with a fumble by rookie running back David Wilson. Sean Lee recovered for the Cowboys on their 34.

Cowboys starting center Phil Costa aggravated a back injury that kept him out of most of the preseason. He was replaced by Ryan Cook.
