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.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: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler NFL Jerseys Wholesale .

MANCHESTER, England -- Get ready for Jose Mourinho vs. Pep Guardiola, part II.Manchester United ended a run of three straight losses by capitalizing on two goalkeeper mistakes to beat third-tier Northampton 3-1 in the third round of the League Cup on Wednesday.The reward wasnt kind for United: A match against Manchester City in the last 16 next month and a renewal of the Mourinho-Guardiola rivalry that has been transferred from Spain to the north of England this season.While Guardiolas City was winning its ninth successive game of the season by beating Swansea 2-1 away, United labored again and needed a helping hand from Northamptons error-prone goalkeeper and its strong bench to end the first blip of Mourinhos tenure.Northampton goalkeeper Adam Smith was penalized for picking up a back pass and United scored from the resulting free kick, Michael Carrick lashing home a shot after Wayne Rooneys attempt was blocked.United was pegged back by a penalty and then took the lead against through Ander Herrera in the 68th minute before Smith dallied over a clearance and was dispossessed by substitute Marcus Rashford, who scored into an empty net.I think the team was in control from the beginning, Mourinho said. The game could and should have been easier.Rooney was one of the few regulars to start for United and was handed a rare chance to lead the attack in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Rooney missed a good early chance and finished the game on the right wing after Ibrahimovic and Rashford were thrown on by Mourinho, with United drawing 1-1 at that stage.A victory over lower-league opposition will serve as only brief respite for Mourinho, who will be back under scrutiny if United loses to Leicester on Saturday after successive losses to Manchester City, Feyenoord and Watford in the space of nine days.Gael Clichy and Aleix Garcia were the second-half scorers for a mmuch-changed Man City side, which kept up its 100 percent start under Guardiola.dddddddddddd Amid Citys nine-game winning run was an eye-catching 2-1 win at United.Vincent Kompany started for City in his first game of the season after a thigh injury, but left the field seconds after Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled a goal back for Swansea in injury time. Kompany, Citys club captain, has been out since May 4.The doctors are speaking with him and seeing whats up, Guardiola said. Hopefully, it will not be a big problem. Were going to wait for the results from the doctors.Heres a look at the other results on Wednesday that wrapped up the third round of Englands second-tier cup competition:---WEST HAM 1, ACCRINGTON 0Struggling West Ham required a free kick by Dimitri Payet six minutes into injury time to overcome the lowest-ranked team left in the competition.The France midfielder curled his shot over the wall and into the net, earning his team a home match against London rival Chelsea in the Olympic Stadium.Accrington, which is in 11th place in the fourth tier, stifled West Ham comfortably before Payets late intervention. West Ham has lost four of its five matches in the Premier League, including the last two with 4-2 scorelines.---TOTTENHAM 5, GILLINGHAM 0Vincent Janssen scored his first goal for Tottenham and Christian Eriksen netted twice in an easy win for Spurs against the third-tier visitors.There were also goals for Josh Onomah -- his first senior strike -- and Erik Lamela late on as Tottenham secured a last-16 match at Liverpool.---ALSOHull beat Stoke 2-1 thanks to Markus Henriksens injury-time winner, Southampton defeated Crystal Palace 2-0, Sunderland came from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers 2-1, and Bristol City won 2-1 at Fulham.
