DeMarco Murray did the finishing work for the Dallas Cowboys. Backup Lance Dunbar made his job a lot easier.
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.
Giants tied the Cowboys late in the fourth quarter, but then allowed Romo to drive down the field, which allowed Dan Bailey to kick the game winning FG.
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.
Calvin Johnson and his stat lines have locked down best receiver with a level of dominance perhaps never before seen at that position. With Megatron sitting atop the podium, who currently owns the title of second most dangerous receiver in the NFL: Dez Bryant or A.J. Green?
The Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-analyst tells WFAN he would have had a “hard time” with the way Bryant was carrying on during Sunday’s 31-30 loss to the Detroit Lions.
“I don’t think there’s anything to it,” Manning said of his 4-0 record at AT&T Stadium, which allegedly included the Giants quarterback scribbling his name, the score, the date and the words “First Win in the New Stadium” in the visitors locker room.
Paul Dottino previews the three biggest matchups ahead of the Giants’ Week 1 opener in Dallas.
Here’s what you need to know about the wide receiver position this year: It’s deep. Here’s our top 12.
The Cowboys and Dolphins are two teams with many question marks heading toward the 2013 season.
It’s that time of year again — the time when NFL coaches are on the hot seat.
One way or the other, the Giants always seem to be hanging on to postseason hopes, rather than marching straight into them. Perhaps this year will be different.
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 Giants have to do a better job of defending the pass, or they will have a much more difficult time in the second half of the regular season than they did in the first.
