    [​IMG] 28 - 35 [​IMG]

    The Cowboys won the coin toss and elected to take the rock in the 2nd half. The Giants started with the ball and looked completely out of sync right off the bat. A few misses by Eli resulted in a 3 and out giving the ball to the Boys. The Cowboys however looked pretty in tune from the start. They moved the ball right down the field, where HB Murray would cap the drive with a 1yd run to take an early 7-0 lead. The Giants would continue to struggle as Eli Manning would throw his first of 3 ints on the day. But luckily the Giants D would step up and return the favor as newly acquired MLB Jonas Mouton would pick off Romo. [​IMG] The Giants started to show some life on a positive drive that pushed them into the red zone. But Eli would be nabbed again as CB Brandon Carr made a ridiculous diving grab in the corner of the end zone to force the touchback and give the ball right back to the Boys. The Boys took that momentum and drove right down the field again as HB Murray would punch in his 2nd td of the game from 2yds out. Down by 2 scores late in the first half the Giants started to show a sense of urgency. Eli got his troops together and would put together a very productive drive. David Wilson slowly got hot as he kept the Dallas D on there heels. A balanced series would help march the GMen down the field. David Wilsons 2 yd scamper finally got Big Blue on the board with less than a minute remaining in the first half.Whatever was said at halftime carried over to the field as the Giants D stepped it up a notch.
    The Giants front 4 would begin to get pressure and force Romo to make tough passes. This resulted in several 3rd and long situations. The Giants carried over the momentum to Offense as Eli got into a groove with his wideouts. Eli and Nicks connected on a 45yd TD pass to start the offensive explosion. The Cowboys wouldn't lay down and HB Murray kept the Giants in check all day. But a few Romo mistakes kept the Giants in the game. David Wilson finally would break one loose for a 45yd TD run. The pressure by the Giants continued as CB Prince Amukumura picked Romo off twice in 2 crucial points in the game.

    With the game tied at 28 late, the Giants coverage forced Romo into making another forced throw as CB Hosley picked him off to put the Giants in scoring position. Andre Brown pounded in the go ahead score and on the following kickoff, Miles Austin would lose the ball and give it right back to the Giants to end the game. The Manning Bowl comes to East Rutherford next week as the Giants take on the Broncos.
