Giants on Jason Witten's mind

SOUTHLAKE, Texas – Jason Garrett constantly hammers home to his players about the process and having a great day today.

Jason Witten was asked about the Cowboys’ 2012 schedule, which was released Tuesday, and the tight end had only Sept. 5 at New York Giants on his mind.

“It’s hard to get past that first one, I know that,” Witten said. “You look at the way the [2011] season ended, it couldn’t be a better game to get back up there quickly. There’s no better what to start off than with the champs.”

The Cowboys missed out on winning the NFC East and clinching a playoff spot in January thanks to a 31-17 loss to the Giants at MetLife Stadium.
