Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
A wild end to one of the best games this Sunday. The Giants were able to hold on after leading by 23 and seeing that lead erased by 24 straight Cowboys points.
Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes is the hero for New York as he booted five field goals, giving the Giants the lead for good with his last three points in the fourth quarter.
A fantastic effort by the Cowboys defense is negative by a myriad of turnovers from the team's offense.
For the Giants, they move to 4-0 in new Cowboys stadium. While Eli Manning wasn't sharp or perfect, he got the job done. He did not throw a touchdown pass, but put his team in position to score points.
With the win, the Giants improve to 6-2 and the Cowboys drop to 3-4.
If you aren't in front a TV screen watching this game, you have missed one of the best Cowboys/Giants game in history.
The last play is under review, but quickly, I will give a rundown.
Romo throws up a prayer for Bryant in the end zone as he is flanked by two Giant defenders. He catches the ball, falls in the back of the end zone near the out of bounds line.
Will it be overturned?
:51 4th quarter
There is possibly the ballgame, folks. Romo just threw his fourth interception of the night on fourth and one as he was trying to back away from pressure.
Dallas decided to go shotgun on fourth and one instead of running the ball, something that I am sure Jason Garrett will be criticized for when the game does end.
The Giants took the ball from the Cowboys five times and ended up living to see another day. Offensively, it will be hard for any team in the NFL to win a game when they turn the ball over six times.
Romo was responsible for four of them and even though they took the lead, the Giants still held court.
Dallas will have another chance to win the game as the Giants will have to punt, but this one will be one of the more disappointing losses in the coaching career of Jason Garrett.
2 Minute Warning 4th Quarter
The Cowboys have to score a touchdown to win this game, and they just crossed midfield.
Tight end Jason Witten has 14 catches for 131 yards with Miles Austin not that far behind with 121 yards on eight catches.
Romo and the Cowboys offense has moved the ball pretty well against the Giants in the second half, but turnovers are still plaguing them. Will we see another turnover to end the game for Dallas or a touchdown to score a much needed victory?
We'll see if the Giants defense can stop the Cowboys offense late in the fourth quarter.
6:40 4th Quarter
And there is turnover number five for the Cowboys. Felix Jones just fumbled the ball away with just over six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
The fumble was recovered by Giants safety Stevie Brown.
It was Jones' first turnover and the Cowboys fifth of the day. Giants have it on the Cowboys 35 yard line.
11:25 4th Quarter
Giants fans should take solace in knowing that New York is driving toward a possible score. We know that the 4th quarter is usually Manning time, and this one is no different.
Manning has placed the Giants on the Cowboys 26 yard line for a field goal try.
End of 3rd Quarter
The Cowboys were able to take the ball away from the Giants for the second quarter. Safety Gerald Sensabaugh laid a vicious hit on receiver Victor Cruz as he caught ball, jarring it loose. Safety Danny McCray was there to intercept the ball, negating a pretty positive Giants drive.
Dallas' defense has been their saving grace in this game as the Cowboys turned the ball over four times in the 1st half. Since then, the Cowboys have been able to score 24 straight points to the lead into the fourth quarter.
1:50 3rd Quarter
The Giants are now tasked with stopping the Cowboys offense and trying to give a spark to their own. The Giants have been stopped on three straight possessions and have looked flat in the second half.
Receiver Victor Cruz has just two catches for 23 yards and Eli Manning is just 9 for 22.
Let's see just how the Giants respond.
The Cowboys have their defense to thank for this "comeback."
Cowboys' D has kept game close. Holding Giants to three red zone field goals huge. Giants now straight possessions w/out scoring. 23-17 NYG— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) October 28, 2012
9:11 3rd Quarter
Sports fans, it looks like we have a ballgame.
Cowboys villain Tony Romo just scored a one yard touchdown on a bootleg around the right side of the line.
His touchdown pulled the Cowboys to within six points after a disastrous first half.
The Cowboys drive went for 86 yards on 11 plays as they took 5:44 off of the clock.
Game on, folks. Game on.
11:45 3rd Quarter
A quick penalty check for both teams.
DALLAS - 2/10 Yards
NEW YORK - 1/20 Yards
A really clean game for both teams.
14:49 3rd Quarter
Giants corner Prince Amukamara was just flagged for pass interference. A quick story about the Prince.
Back in 2011, the Cowboys were headed toward drafting him or tackle Tyron Smith.
Because Dallas' secondary has been inconsistent to say the least, I was a strong advocate for the Cowboys to draft the Prince to replace Terence Newman.
So far, I've been proven wrong. Amukamara has been wildly inconsistent and injury prone. He may turn it around in the future, but so far, he has not been what the Giants have hoped for.
:41 2nd Quarter
Dallas' defense has stuffed the Giants offense in the 2nd quarter. After four turnover in the first two quarters, the Cowboys are actually in a pretty decent spot considering what has happened.
There is not a lot of time left in the 2nd quarter for the Cowboys to score, but the Dallas defense should feel pretty good about themselves heading into the third quarter.
Eli Manning has no touchdowns and just 106 passing yards. The Giants running game has been slow to get going and star receiver Victor Cruz has been ineffective in the first half.
For the Cowboys, they finally stopped the bleeding with no additional turnovers after Bryant's fumble. No effectiveness in the running game for Dallas either, but Romo has almost 200 passing yards and they are down by just 13 points.
Should be an interesting and exciting second half for both teams.
2 Minute Warning 2nd Quarter
If Bryant is wide open, then I believe Romo should throw it to him, right?
Romo just found Bryant, wide open, streaking down the field, for a 55 yard gain.
This half has just two minutes left and the Cowboys are in business in Giants territory.
Will this end well for the Cowboys? Dallas driving...
5:17 2nd Quarter
The Cowboys finally are on the board behind a four yard touchdown from Felix Jones. That drive went for 72 yards on eight plays for Dallas, which should give them a little confidence before halftime.
What fans should notice on the Cowboys first scoring drive is that Romo relied on his most trusted: Tight end Jason Witten and wide receiver Miles Austin.
Maybe the trust for Bryant has finally left?
6:35 2nd Quarter
Life in Dallas? Romo just hooked up with Miles Austin for a 24 yard gain, giving Dallas the ball on the Giants 24 yard line.
Dallas needs to score a touchdown, not a field goal, before the first half ends.
The Cowboys offense has struggled, to say the least, and a touchdown would give them a needed confidence boost.
10:45 2nd Quarter
Looks like Romo has either lost his confidence or has no faith in his receivers. He missed Miles Austin on a wide open second and nine play, that if completed, would have resulted in a first down.
He then threw the ball outside to Kevin Ogletree, but 'Tree ran an inside route, which resulted in another incompletion.
Dallas is just plain flat.
11:29 2nd Quarter
The Cowboys get their first turnover of the game. Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled the ball around mid field and the Cowboys recovered.
Finally a break for the Cowboys, but can they take advantage?
Giants have 103 interception return yards... Cowboys have 62 total yards.— Nick Eatman (@nickeatman) October 28, 2012
13:05 2nd Quarter
Giants star defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul just got the first interception of his career and returned it for a touchdown.
Romo was under pressure from Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty, tried to float the ball out to the flat, Pierre-Paul read it and just jumped up and picked the ball off.
He skated 28 yards for the touchdown, giving the Giants a 23 point lead.
Dallas is not the type of team to come back from deficits of this nature, so it will be interesting to see how they respond.
14:22 2nd Quarter
The Giants now have a 16 point lead over the Cowboys, which is kind of amazing. Dallas has three turnovers, all in the 1st quarter, and the Giants are being held to just field goals.
The Cowboys have to stop gift wrapping plays for the Giants and the Cowboys need more consistent play from their so-called stars.
Not sure how much longer Romo will continue to trust Bryant.
The Cowboys are the laughing stock of the twitterverse right now. With three 1st quarter turnovers, I can't blame them.
Saying Cowboys are train wreck would be insult to train wrecks.— mike freeman (@realfreemancbs) October 28, 2012
