Giants shake up the offensive line as new-look Cowboys await in Dallas

The Cowboys defense won't be the only ones sporting a new look up front for the season opener.

The New York Giants' offensive line has just as many changes for the season opener in Dallas Sunday night.

Once a constant in terms of personnel, the Giants will go against the Cowboys' new 4-3 front with two new faces on the line and a third player being shifted to a new position.

That wasn't the way Tom Coughlin planned things for the season, but preseason injuries to center David Baas and right tackle David Diehl have forced the changes.

First-round draft pick Justin Pugh is the right tackle. Left guard Kevin Boothe is the new center and third-year offensive lineman James Brewer will start at left guard.
