Spagnola says, "I'm going to give you a few of the keys to win the game. The 1st key is protecting Tony Romo. Tony Romo was sacked 9 times in the 2 loses to the Giants last year, and that's 9 times of the 36 total sacks he suffered last season. Far too many times in 2 games. The Cowboys must do a better job against that fierce pass rush if Tony Romo's gonna be on his feet long enough to produce enough points to beat this Giants offense."
Spagnola added, "Speaking of that Giants offense, the Cowboys defense must do a better job of defending the Giants receivers. Last year in 2 games, Eli Manning threw for 746 yards and 5 touchdowns.
The Cowboys and Giants open the 2012 season in the Meadowlands on Wednesday night at 7:30pm.
