EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Don’t bother calling the New York Giants the best team in the NFC this week.

In seeing their five-game winning streak end Sunday in a 33-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the Giants looked like the team that collapsed in the second half of last season.

They turned over the ball. They committed penalties. Worst of all, they played without the passion and hunger that had experts proclaiming them the NFC’s top team after an impressive win over Seattle the week before.

Heading into Philadelphia for a Sunday night game against the Eagles, there are once again questions about the Giants (6-3).
