Giants vs. Cowboys: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent IDecember 12, 2016

In a game that went down to the wire, the New York Giants edged the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 29-24. 

Tony Romo tossed four interceptions, Dez Bryant and Felix Jones both lost fumbles, but somehow, the Cowboys had a chance to win the game late in the fourth quarter. Bryant almost came down with a miraculous touchdown pass with 10 seconds left, but his fingers came down out of bounds. In the end, the Cowboys' six turnovers were just too much to overcome. 

Eli Manning was stymied by the Cowboys' vaunted secondary, which is why the Cowboys had any chance to win the game to begin with. He finished the game with just 192 yards and one interception, failing to throw a single touchdown. 

Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Brown combined for 99 yards and a touchdown.

The play of the game goes to Jason Pierre-Paul, who took an ill-advised pass from Romo 28 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. It turned out to be a critical play in the game, as the Giants offense only managed two field goals in the second half. 

The Cowboys fell to 3-4 and will travel to face the undefeated Atlanta Falcons in Week 9, and the Giants improved to 6-2 and will host the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday.
