ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are set to be the first rookie quarterback-running back combo to start an opener for the Dallas Cowboys since Roger Staubach and Calvin Hill nearly 50 years ago. Camo Redskins Jerseys .There will be a sense of anticipation on the New York sideline as well Sunday when the Giants visit the Cowboys. Its the debut of coach Ben McAdoo following a 12-year run under Tom Coughlin that included two Super Bowl titles.If you dont get a little anxious to go play and go coach, you probably have to find something else to do, said McAdoo , the teams offensive coordinator the past two seasons. I think thats normal, thats healthy.Prescott, the fourth-round pick suddenly starting because of injuries to Tony Romo (broken back) and Kellen Moore (broken ankle), and Elliott arent the type to admit to nerves. But they also understand the significance of something that hasnt happened since 1969 with one the NFLs storied franchises.I think were prepared, said Elliott, the fourth overall pick who was limited to one preseason game by a hamstring injury. I think that were both very poised, were both excited to compete. We dont want any drop-offs just because were rookies.The Cowboys didnt survive without Romo last year, going 4-12 while losing 11 of the 12 games he missed with a twice-broken left collarbone. Plus, 2014 All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant was limited all season after breaking his foot in the opener against the Giants. He missed seven games.A pair of veterans in Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel couldnt keep the Cowboys in contention last year, and now theyll try with a rookie. Prescott earned the job with a strong showing in three preseason games.I think we both have confidence in ourselves and each other, said Prescott, the career passing leader at Mississippi State. I think we need to stay even-keel with our emotions throughout the game, and I think well have some fun out there.Things to consider as the Cowboys take an 8-0 record in openers against the Giants into the fourth opener in the past five seasons between the NFC East rivals:GIANTS O-LINE: This is the biggest question mark for McAdoo and the Giants, who were 6-10 last season. The line (LT Ereck Flowers, LG Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, RG John Jerry and RT Marshall Newhouse) is the same as last year but wasnt good in the preseason. Tackle Will Beatty, who was released in a salary cap move earlier in the year, re-signed late in training camp. Pugh insists the line will improve once the team starts game planning. That remains to be seen.ON THE OTHER HAND: The Cowboys believe they have one of the best lines in football, anchored by three first-round picks from the past six drafts, all of them Pro Bowlers the past two seasons (LT Tyron Smith, C Travis Frederick and RG Zack Martin). Elliott has some star potential running behind them.CRUZ RETURNS: WR Victor Cruz will be playing in his first game since the middle of the 2014 season, when he injured a knee. He missed last season with a calf injury. If Cruz can show some of his old form, rookie Sterling Shepard of Oklahoma lives up to the hype, and Odell Beckham Jr. does his thing, Eli Manning is going to have a big year.WHERES THE RUSH: The Cowboys hope they have some household names on their defensive line by this time next year. Right now they dont, and theres no telling who will take the heat off a secondary with plenty to prove by getting to the quarterback. Dallas knows this much: last years sack leader, DeMarcus Lawrence, will miss the first four games on a substance-abuse suspension.WATCH THE DEFENSE: After having the NFLs worst defense last season, the Giants have the potential to make big strides . New York signed DE Olivier Vernon, DT Damon Harrison and CB Janoris Jenkins in free agency, and drafted CB Eli Apple, Elliotts teammate at Ohio State, 10th overall. S Darian Thompson, the third-round pick, was a contender to start had he not injured a shoulder in the preseason. He is practicing but his status for the opener is iffy.---Online:AP NFL website: and Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at Elite Redskins Jerseys . -- Adam Snyder returned to the San Francisco 49ers this season because the offensive lineman thought it was his best opportunity to win a championship. Green Redskins Jerseys . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. . World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187.Ladies boss Scott Rogers insists Liverpool are in great shape and has praised the one-club mentality Jurgen Klopp has helped instill since his arrival at Anfield 13 months ago. The 30-year-old, who stepped up from his role as Matt Beards assistant to take charge of Liverpool Ladies in October last year, was invited to Melwood by Klopp last month to watch the first-team train and talk tactics.It was a fantastic opportunity for me as a young coach to tap into his knowledge and experience, Rogers told Sky Sports at Liverpool Ladies end-of-season awards dinner at Anfield. Rogers says Liverpool are in a very positive place I learnt a lot in the time that I spent with him. He was very welcoming and said that we [my assistant Phil Backhouse and I] can come down whenever we want and that just shows the one-club mentality we have here at Liverpool, and the fact that hes prepared to support me and my staff in our development.Im told that at every club that Jurgen has been at he has adopted this one-club mentality. Hes a big believer in that its one big family. I think were in a very positive place as a football club - both the mens and the womens teams - and thats down to everyone at the club. Liverpool and Liverpool Ladies launched the 2016-17 kit together (pic: Liverpool FC) Liverpool sit top of the Premier League for the first time since 2014, despite rivals Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal dwarfing their transfer spending over the summer.Jurgen buys into the team ethic. You dont the need the most money in the world. Its only 11 v 11 on the pitch, Rogers added.If you can get the players to buy into how you want to play, and your philosophies and beliefs, you can be successful. Hes come in and freshened the place up and the football is exciting again. Throwback Redskins Jerseys. he way the mens team is playing at the minute is fantastic, arguably they are the best in the league and hes been a breath of fresh air. Caroline Weir was named Fans Player of the Season and was presented with her award by ex-gymnast Beth Tweddle Klopp paid tribute to Ladies skipper Gemma Bonner via a pre-recorded video message shown on the big screen at the Beautiful Game Suite inside Liverpools new Main Stand during Monday nights awards.Two-time title winning captain Bonner was presented with a special recognition award for her service to the club and Rogers is banking on the Leeds-born central defender to feature prominently for his side going forward.Gemma has been fantastic for me and has put a lot of trust in me as a young manager by signing a new contract [last November], he said. Liverpool legend John Aldridge with award winners Sophie Ingle and Gemma Bonner (R) Shes bought into what I want to do, shes a great role model for the club and I want to keep her here long-term.Rogers was also full of praise for Wales international Sophie Ingle who scooped the Players Player of the Year award after a sterling debut season at the club following her move from Bristol at the turn of the year.Sophie has been brilliant, Rogers admitted. I knew what I was getting when I signed her. Her passing range is unbelievable and she really doesnt know how good she is.
