    The Dallas Cowboys have petitioned the NFL to open training camp three days earlier because their season-opening opponent, the New York Giants, open their camp three days before they do, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The Cowboys are set to open camp July 30 in Oxnard, Calif., while the Giants will open July 27 -- giving them somewhat of an unfair advantage heading into the Sept. 5 season opener. Per league rules, teams are allowed to open camp 15 days prior to their first preseason game with no concern given to the opener. The Cowboys' first preseason game is Aug. 13 against the Oakland Raiders on ESPN Monday Night Football. The Giants' first game is Aug. 10. "What we have to focus on is what our situation is," Garrett said. "We can't worry about what the Giants' situation is or any of our opponents. We know when we're going to report to camp and we know when we're going to play our first preseason game and first regular-season game."
