With a windy MetLife Stadium as a backdrop for a key NFC East matchup, the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys battled for a full 60 minutes. A Dan Bailey field goal from 32 yards out with no time remaining propelled the Cowboys to a 24-21 victory over the Giants.
When the New York Giants started the season 0-6, few thought that the team would take part in any meaningful games in 2013. But New York has gotten off the canvas with four straight wins, and now the team faces its biggest obstacle yet, the Dallas Cowboys, in its quest to return to the NFC playoffs.
The Giants swagger has returned, courtesy of a four-game winning streak. New York dug itself a deep hole in starting the season with six straight losses, but four straight wins have placed them back in the playoff hunt. Big Blue faces an erratic Cowboys squad that beat New York 36-31 in a wild season opener at Dallas in September. The G-men would love nothing better than to return the favor to the ‘Boys at MetLife Stadium this week.
