Updated: September 6, 2012

The New York Giants got the defence of their Super Bowl title off to a bad start as the Dallas Cowboys claimed a 24-17 victory.

Dallas quarterback Tony Romo completed 22-of-29 passes for 307 yards and three touchdowns.

Unheralded Kevin Ogletree, who had no touchdown receptions in his first three seasons in the league, caught eight passes for 114 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while DeMarco Murray rushed for 129 yards on 19 carries.

The rest of the season openers kick off on Sunday and 2BET2 have the odds.
