When the New York Giants open the season Sunday, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys are not the only thing lining up against them.

History, and fate, have also not been kind to the Giants in this situation.

While Giants may have won the Super Bowl as recently as 2012, the Cowboys have dominated them in season openers. The two rivals have faced each other on six occasions in Week 1.

The Cowboys, making the veins in Tom Coughlin’s forehead swell, are sitting at 6-for-6.

There have been signs in pre-season that Dallas has a very real chance to making that a lucky seven. Even the odds-makers were on side, making it three-point favourites when this week dawned.

New York has had issues with its offensive line. Quarterback Eli Manning took the fewest sacks in the NFL last season but he may not have the same luxury in 2013.
