Eli Manning threw for 249 yards, tossed three touchdowns and — most importantly — didn’t throw an interception.
No one was more pleased with the Giants than Adam Merchant. The 15-year-old fan from Barre, Vt., attended Friday’s practice and Sunday’s game, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Tom Coughlin doesn’t like the line of questioning now? If the Giants lose Sunday, those whispers of a second-half swoon will once again turn into roars. But if they win…
Paul Dottino says Giants fans should forget everything they’ve heard about a second-half swoon.
As much as they wanted to avoid it, the Giants are starting to look like the team that won the Super Bowl last season. No, not the one holding the Lombardi Trophy at the end. The one that almost didn’t make it to the playoffs at all.
Tom Coughlin knows it. His players know it. The Giants have built a 6-3 record and own a two-game lead in the NFC East without having consistently played championship-caliber football.
“You don’t worry about it,” Rolle said of Green’s comments. “I’m a deep safety. I’m going to play my responsibility, and if I get a chance I’m coming across. He’s a great receiver, though. You can’t take anything from A.J. Green.”
The lead was 23-0, but it was not enough. Somehow, the Giants allowed the Dallas Cowboys to score 24 consecutive points before getting two Lawrence Tynes field goals in the fourth quarter to pull it out, 29-24. Let’s take a review of the ballgame.

The two-time Pro Bowler has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week after recording six tackles, deflecting two passes and picking off two balls thrown by 49ers quarterback Alex Smith.
“Last year they had our number, for whatever reason … And they look like a much better team this year,” Rolle said. “So we’re definitely going to put our foot to the metal and give it all that we’ve got this week.”
Wide receiver Ramses Barden, cornerback Jayron Hosley, safety Kenny Phillips and defensive tackle Rocky Bernard have been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks won’t play in Sunday’s game against Cleveland because of recurring left foot and knee problems.
New York Giants rookie receiver Rueben Randle was on the receiving end of nationally-televised criticism by NBC football analyst Cris Collinsworth on Sunday, and it has left him a little confused.
The New York Giants may be without wide receiver Hakeem Nicks for Sunday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Nicks, who missed a win over Carolina on Sept. 19 with a sore foot, now has a knee problem.
