FRISCO, Texas -- Ezekiel Elliott called himself average after the New York Giants held him to less than 3 yards per carry in a loss in his NFL debut with Dallas.The rookie running back hasnt had to describe himself that way since the 20-19 loss in Week 1. The Cowboys havent lost either.It was definitely frustrating because it was not how I imagined it, said Elliott, who gets another shot at the Giants as Dallas (11-1) chases a franchise-record 12th straight win and the NFC East title Sunday night. But I think it definitely helped shape me into the player I am today and put a chip on my shoulder early this season to go out there and get things right.Fellow rookie Dak Prescott also debuted as the replacement for the injured Tony Romo. He left an impression with the Giants (8-4) despite the loss , which ended when the clock ran out with Dallas scrambling to get into position for a field goal after receiver Terrance Williams didnt get out of bounds on a completion.Three months later, New York doesnt exactly seem surprised that Prescott has led the Cowboys to a comfortable division lead with a strong chance to secure home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.After admittedly focusing on Elliott and forcing a new quarterback to beat them, the Giants realize it might not be quite as easy to keep Elliott somewhere around the season low of 51 yards he had in the first meeting, while preventing big plays downfield from Prescott.You saw all of those tools in the beginning, but I feel like he has hit his stride, he understands what defenses are doing, linebacker Jonathan Casillas said. Maybe he didnt show that in Week 1. Now you are seeing him step into the mold and take full control of this offense.The Giants will be without pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul, who could miss the rest of the season following surgery for a sports hernia . But the Cowboys dont expect the approach to change. New York will try to force throws underneath while putting pressure on Prescott.Theyve had good rushers there for 60 years, Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. And they place a premium on that. They always have, and they got a lot of guys. They have guys that can rush outside with those big guys pushing the pocket. So its the starters, its the backup guys. Theyve always kind of come at you in waves.Of course, the Giants will still have their eyes on Elliott, the NFLs leading rusher with 1,285 yards.You really dont change much week to week, no matter the opponent, defensive tackle Damon Harrison said. It is still the same thing for the defensive line: stop the run, set the edge, build the wall. But when you play a back like Ezekiel, then you have to do some minor tweaks in your assignments.Prescott started his NFL-record streak of 176 pass attempts without an interception to begin a career against the Giants, throwing 45 times in the opener, but with just one completion of more than 17 yards.And after finding Dez Bryant easily in his surprisingly strong preseason, Prescott targeted the star receiver five times compared to 26 combined for tight end Jason Witten and slot receiver Cole Beasley. Witten and Beasley were the leading receivers, both averaging less than 10 yards per catch.The Cowboys considered those numbers a product of the game plan, and one of Prescotts strengths has been letting the defense dictate where his throws go. The 23-year-old believes hes grown plenty since that opener.Every aspect of my game, knowledge, footwork, seeing the defense, just everything, said Prescott, who has 19 touchdowns with just two interceptions. Eleven games later or whatever it is, just to be on the better side and knowing how close we were to winning that game. I think the loss was good for us at the time, so just to be able to come back and I guess revenge that loss, it will be fun.Ditto for Elliott.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Sergei Fedorov Jersey .

Darren Helm Jersey .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. Chris Chelios Jersey . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand.DETROIT -- Justin Verlanders no-hit bid was finally over in the seventh inning -- and before refocusing, the Detroit ace saw his shortstop do something amusing. "When the double was hit, and the ball came back in, everybody started cheering," Verlander said. "(Jhonny) Peralta caught the ball and looked up at the board checking the hits. Thats when I knew he didnt know. I was like, Come on, Jhonny." Verlander fell seven outs short of his third career no-hitter, but the Detroit ace looked sharp in his final start before the All-Star break, and the Tigers backed him with three home runs in a 5-0 victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Mitch Morelands two-out double to right-centre broke up Verlanders bid. Verlander (10-6) left the game after the seventh with a tight right quad muscle, having allowed just that one hit and three walks. "It was just kind of starting to get tight," Verlander said. "Theres really no need to push it." Torii Hunter, Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta hit solo homers off Texas starter Martin Perez (3-2). The Rangers finished with two hits. Verlander was picked for the American League All-Star team but was replaced for Tuesday nights event. Under baseballs labour contract, pitchers who start on the Sunday before the All-Star game may opt not to participate. Although he also took a no-hitter into the seventh at Houston on May 5, Verlanders overpowering aura hasnt been quite the same this season. Sundays gem lowered his ERA to 3.50. He struck out only three but was effective anyway. "It was a little bit different Verlander than what we usually see," Moreland said. "He mixed a lot of off-speed in there and kept us off-balance. I felt like we hit some balls hard, but it seemed like they went right to them. Youve got to tip your hat to what he did, its always a battle going against him and hes where hes at for a reason. It was a tough one for us." Verlander no-hit Toronto on May 7, 2011. His other no-hitter came June 12, 2007, against Milwaukee. Nolan Ryan, Sandy Koufax, Bob Feller and Cy Young are among the five pitchers with at least three no-hitters. Larry Corcoran, an ambidextrous pitcher who won 177 games from 1880-85, is the other one. Verlander took the mound about 12 hours after San Franciscos Tim Lincecuum finished a no-hitter of his own at San Diego.dddddddddddd The drama began building in Detroit in the fourth when Tigers left fielder Matt Tuiasosopo got turned around on a line drive by Nelson Cruz. He was able to recover and reach up for the catch. In the fifth, Hunter ran to the corner in right to catch a flyball by Elvis Andrus. Jurickson Profar, the next hitter, sent a smash toward Martinez, who was playing first base because Prince Fielder was Detroits designated hitter Sunday. Martinez made the stop and took the ball to first himself for the third out of the inning. Hunter went deep in the first to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead, and Martinez and Peralta hit back-to-back homers in the fourth. Detroit added two runs in the sixth on RBI singles by Peralta and Tuiasosopo, although that rally made Verlander wait a while before taking the mound again. The following inning was when Moreland connected for the first Texas hit. Neither Hunter nor centre fielder Austin Jackson had much of a shot at Morelands drive. "Obviously, its one of those things you start to think about," Verlander said. "Ive been there before, where Ive lost them in the sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth. So I guess Ive -- not become accustomed to it -- but you learn to just refocus and just get the next guy. Thats all I can do." This was much better than Verlanders outing at Texas on May 16, when he allowed eight runs and didnt get out of the third inning. Verlander has been overshadowed a bit this year by fellow Detroit right-hander Max Scherzer, who is a strong candidate to start Tuesday nights All-Star game at Citi Field in New York. But Verlander showed Sunday why he, too, is an All-Star. "I think hes been a very good major league pitcher that has expectations that are almost impossible to live up to," Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. Verlander received a nice ovation from the home crowd after the first Texas hit, and another one when he came back to the dugout after retiring his final batter. NOTES: Perez allowed five runs and four hits in 5 2-3 innings. He struck out four and walked three. ... Leyland said Anibal Sanchez will start Friday at Kansas City in the first game after the All-Star break, followed by Verlander, Doug Fister, Scherzer and Rick Porcello.
