NFL Picks Week 1, Cowboys Vs. Giants: ESPN Taking New York

The 2012 NFL season kicks off tonight in New Jersey, as the Dallas Cowboys head to Giants Stadium to take on the New York Giants -- on the same night the Giants raise their Super Bowl XLVI banner.

As always, NFL analysts, bloggers and fans alike are making their Week 1 picks, and the folks over at ESPN are no different. As you might expect from the Connecticut-based network, the analysts at ESPN favored New York. Not just one of them, though: every single analyst picked the Giants to beat the Cowboys on Wednesday night.

You can check out their picks here, but there's not a lot to see, except for a straight block of Big Blue's logo. ESPN's analysts picking the Giants include Mike Ditka, Adam Schefter, Ron Jaworski, Chris Mortensen, Mike Golic, Keyshawn Johnson and Cris Carter.

We'll see if Dallas' revamped secondary can stop Eli Manning and New York's offense -- something that propelled New York to a Week 17 victory last year, and ultimately, the NFC East title.
