Giants news, 9/13: Ezekiel Elliott has a message for Landon Collins

Cowboy running back says every team focuses its defense on stopping him

New York Giants safety Landon Collins more or less spilled Sunday night’s game plan on Wednesday. Stop Ezekiel Elliott. Make Dak Prescott try to win the game for the Dallas Cowboys.

Elliott’s response? Basically, it amounted to good luck with that.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott essentially offered a verbal shrug Wednesday when asked about Giants safety Landon Collins' comments about defending Dallas ahead of Sunday night's meeting at AT&T Stadium.

Collins told reporters earlier in the day that stopping Zeke was the key to everything, putting pressure on quarterback Dak Prescott.

"Put the ball into Dak's hands and I think we have a better shot at winning," Collins said.

"That's how every defense is going to play us," Elliott said from the Dallas locker room. "We have a lot of playmakers on our outside. Dak's a playmaker himself. Like I said, that comes down to what we do. If we go out there and execute and stay on schedule, we'll be just fine."

Ahh, Giants vs. Cowboys. Trash talk. Wouldn’t have it any other way.

Jason Garrett won’t diss Eli Manning

Giants fans will, but Dallas coach Jason Garrett won’t say anything negative about Eli Manning.

“I just think Eli’s a great player. He has been for a long time, certainly the leader of that football team and still capable of making so many plays,” Garrett said on a conference call Wednesday. “He’s so smart, he knows how to use his weapons, and he’s just been an outstanding player for a long time and a great challenge for us every time we face him.”
