Odell Beckham Jr not expected to play despite being game-time decision

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten catches a touchdown pass in front of New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple in the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Sept. 10 2017 in Arlington Texas

It's uncertain whether an National Football League appeal can get the suspension reinstated this season.

After Kansas City stunned the Patriots in New England on Thursday, the schedule Sunday has such standout early games as Oakland at Tennessee and Arizona at Detroit.

With that dominating upset, it just goes to show you never really know what's going to happen week to week. Since Beckham is facing the Cowboys on Sunday night, his fantasy owners are left in a predicament. Thankfully, it comes with the territory of fandom for this team.

How can I listen to New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys on the radio? Teams have split 12 Sunday night games.

Now, Beckham is the one in doubt. It gave the quarterback more options and more time to throw with defenses focused on slowing down the running game. They also say he still is not expected to play in the contest. QB Dak Prescott tied Ben Roethlisberger's rookie record with 13 wins last season, had highest rookie QB rating in history (104.9).

For the first time since Matt Bryant in 2002, the last Giants open the season with a kicker who has no prior experience in the regular season. He gained 107 yards in their second meeting last season but keep in mind that was without the star defensive lineman on the field. This year, not only will Dak have the benefit of an entire offseason to figure out their defense.

Apart from restricting the sale of cannabis, certain regulations have also been imposed on the consumption of marijuana by people. Naqvi said. "The argument against doing it would be that you're selling two intoxicants in one place", Morgan said.

Remember that the Giants swept the Cowboys a year ago, and that was when Dallas didn't have the distraction of the Elliott suspension hanging over their heads.

Beckham did increase his workload throughout the week, but still failed to participate in practice and would have again been listed as DNP on Friday. He was only capable of doing light warm up drills. The Giants won their two games against the Cowboys past year by a combined four points.

Enjoy the game, Giants fans. This comes after the Cowboys easily posted the best record in the league past year. "It's been two weeks, so I'm itching, I'm itching, but just patience and trusting".

Expect a very close game.

But as the all-important divisional matchup nears, it's looking more and more like Beckham will sit this one out. It should add at least another touchdown to the Cowboys' total as the young running back is looking to take out his frustration over this disciplinary process on the field. Those matchups were decided by a combined score of four points, but the Giants' second victory snapped the Cowboys' 11-game winning streak.

As much as Beckham wants it to be all about the greatness - and make no mistake, he is one of the most electrifying players in the game, capable of ridiculous one-handed grabs and absurd open-field runs - history has proven he can't always avoid the distractions. Most importantly, Dallas starts off 2017 with a "W".
