    Victor Cruz says "Some Progress" On Contract Talks With Giants

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "Last week, Victor Cruz put a timetable on working out a new contract with the Giants, saying he'd like to get it done midway through the season or at least by season's end.

    According to the third-year receiver, the sides are making progress.

    "I was excited to hear this weekend that contract talks are moving in the right direction," Cruz told ESPN's Josina Anderson. "I heard there was some progress on the structure."

    Cruz set a new Giants franchise record with 1,536 receiving yards in 2011, and at the halfway point of this season has 52 catches for 650 yards and seven touchdowns. He is making $540,000 this season and is set to become a restricted free agent this spring." Read more...

    NFL Says No Issues With Clock Operation At The End Of Giants-Cowboys Game

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...ith_clock.html

    Excerpt: "Giants coach Tom Coughlin and co-owner John Mara raised some eyebrows after Sunday's 29-24 win when they expressed surprise that the Cowboys were able to run three plays in the game's final 10 seconds.

    Neither went so far as to allege the Cowboys got a hometown advantage from the clock operator, but Coughlin and Mara both used the word "incredible" to describe Dallas' ability to get three plays off in that time frame.

    An NFL spokesman said this morning "there were no issues with the clock." So that means case closed.

    "I must say that, it’s been a long time since I saw three plays in 10 seconds," Coughlin said after the game. "That was an incredible thing that happened there. We thought it was over with the high ball over the middle, and we look up, and the thing is stuck on one." Read more...


    Giants' Fill-In Safety, Stevie Brown, Has Two Interceptions And A Fumble Recovery

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "For a guy who might not be in the starting lineup next week, Stevie Brown is sure making the most of his opportunities. Brown accounted for three of the six turnovers the Giants forced in Sunday’s 29-24 victory over the Cowboys.

    Starting at strong safety in place Kenny Phillips, Brown picked off quarterback Tony Romo twice and recovered a fumble.

    That amounts to five interceptions in the last six games for Brown.


    “Steve came through again, an interception, fumble recovery,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “He’s played very solid and we’re very pleased with the way he’s played.”

    Brown started the Dallas turnover parade early. On the Cowboys’ first possession of the game, Romo tried to go deep down the seam to Dez Bryant. Brown saw the play developing and reacted." Read more...

    Giants Lose Antrel Rolle to Concussion, Chase Blackburn To Hamstring Injury

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "Two defensive starters left Sunday’s 29-24 win against the Cowboys with injuries: Middle linebacker Chase Blackburn suffered a left hamstring injury, and safety Antrel Rolle was being evaluated for a concussion.

    Blackburn was hurt in the third quarter after assisting in a tackle of Dallas running back Felix Jones. He went to the sidelines, where senior vice president of medical services Ronnie Brown wrapped Blackburn’s left thigh on the sidelines.

    Blackburn wears the helmet communication system and lines up the defense, roles filled by Michael Boley after Blackburn went out. Mark Herzlich came into the game after Blackburn’s injury, and Spencer Paysinger also was worked into the lineup.

    Rolle was hurt after coming over to defend a sideline pass to Dez Bryant late in the fourth quarter. Coach Tom Coughlin said Rolle “hit his head hard on the ground.”

    Tyler Sash replaced Rolle in the lineup." Read more...

    Giants Survive Wild Game With Cowboys, 29 - 24, To Raise Record to 6 - 2

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "When the Giants said they “escaped” with a win last Sunday, they didn’t know what was in store for them at Cowboys Stadium.

    Never mind the fact that they at one point had a 23-point lead against their rival Cowboys.

    Today’s 29-24 win could have gone one of two ways for the Giants: An embarrassing collapse, completing the Cowboys’ sweep of the teams’ season series. Instead, it was a hard-fought division win the Giants are glad to have behind them.

    This was not a spectacular performance by the Giants, who somehow squandered the wave of momentum they rode after four takeaways in the game’s first 17 minutes. It came down to the final tense moments, when Dez Bryant’s last-second 37-yard touchdown catch was overturned because of one right hand, and the Cowboys’ final chance at the end zone with one second left on the clock, which flew out the back of the end zone.

    Safety Stevie Brown, who had three takeaways on the day, delivered a critical late-game interception. Kicker Lawrence Tynes was the next most valuable player, connecting on five field goals, including a pair in the fourth quarter that decided the game in the Giants’ favor." Read more...

    Giants See The Best And Worst Of Tony Romo

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "Given the nature of the rivalry, the Giants usually see Tony Romo at his best or his worst. Sunday, it was both.

    The Giants tortured Romo for most of the first half, and Dallas fans were on the verge of booing their quarterback and their team out of Cowboys Stadium.

    Romo responded with a brilliant stretch to overcome a 23-point deficit and force the Giants to come up with a fourth-quarter rally of their own.

    Giants defenders came into this NFC East clash determined to make amends for the season opener. They did just that, intercepting Romo four times and forcing six turnovers in a 29-24 victory.

    The Giants were almost burned by Romo in the waning seconds. He seemed to connect with Dez Bryant on a 37-yard score in the back of the end zone that would have given Dallas the win.Bryant came down with the ball and the play was initially ruled a touchdown. Replays, however, showed Bryant’s hand touched out of bounds on his fall, and the pass was ruled incomplete." Read more...

    Giants Return Safely To New Jersey After 29 - 24 Win Over Cowboys

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "More than 5,000 flights have been canceled as Hurricane Sandy threatens the Northeast, but the Giants team charter was able to depart Dallas and landed at Newark Airport just after 1 a.m. Monday morning.

    The Giants left Cowboys Stadium quickly after their 29-24 win to beat Sandy to New Jersey. Several players and team employees wrote on their Twitter accounts that the charter had landed safely, albeit after a somewhat bumpy ride.

    Defensive captain Justin Tuck wrote on Twitter, "Just landed. Thank you God."

    Stevie Brown Making Most Of Starting Time With Giants

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1194378

    Excerpt: "Stevie Brown k
    nows he is not supposed to be starting. He knows full well that the Giants already have a pair of standout safeties in veterans Antrel Rolle and Kenny Phillips.


    Yet there Brown was on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium, picking off a pair of passes and recovering a fumble in the Giants’ 29-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

    “I’m just trying to play,” he said, “do what I can do and give them a reason to keep me on the field.”

    He gave the Giants three reasons on Sunday, filling in for the injured Phillips for a fourth straight game and making a handful of clutch defensive plays for the Giants.
    Perhaps just as important, Brown helped stabilize the defense late in the game, after Rolle exited with a head injury.

    “There is just a motto around here,” Brown said. “If somebody goes down, you have to fill in, and you can’t have a let-off. And that’s how everybody thinks around here.”

    Brown has exemplified that throughout October, and he was at his best against the Cowboys, the team he grew up watching and rooting for as a Dallas youngster." Read more...

    Giants' Insider: Cowboys' D In Cruz Control

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1194367

    Excerpt: "Victor Cruz owned the Cowboys last year. This year, Dallas owned him.

    The Giants’ wideout arrived at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday on a hot streak, having scored a TD in four straight games. But he never got going in the Giants’ 29-24 win.

    In two games against Dallas last season, Cruz had 19 catches for 252 yards, routinely frustrating the Dallas secondary, but his explosive ability was nowhere to be found Sunday. The Giants escaped with the win, but Cruz struggled through his worst game of the season, making just two catches for 23 yards.

    “They had the same double team going, and it was just a matter of just not getting the balls thrown my way this game,” Cruz said. “It is what it is. A couple potential holding penalties not going my way. It is what it is.”

    The Cowboys’ revamped secondary looked to punish Cruz at every turn, and that was evident when he came across the middle with 59 seconds left in the third quarter. Eli Manning fired a pass to Cruz on third-and-2 from the Dallas 46, and Cruz seemed to make the grab at the 35. But as he brought it in, Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh crushed him.

    As Cruz crumpled to the ground, the ball popped into the air, bouncing off Sensabaugh’s leg and into the hands of safety Danny McCray. A shaken Cruz needed to be helped up by Giants guard Chris Snee and walked slowly off the field, although he did later return. “I got the wind knocked out of me,” Cruz said. “But I got up and kept going.” Read more...

    Myers: Giants Lucky To Leave Dallas 6 - 2

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1194389

    Excerpt: "Tony Romo threw it, Dez Bryant caught it, the officials signaled touchdown and Osi Umenyiora had an awful feeling in his stomach.

    “Sickness,” he said. “I felt pretty sick.”

    After blowing a 23-0 second quarter lead, falling behind 24-23 and then going back ahead 29-24, it appeared the Giants had matched their 2010 meltdown against the Eagles when they blew a 21-point lead with eight minutes left and lost by seven and watched their season fall apart.

    Bryant got behind Corey Webster, and Michael Coe was late coming over taking a swipe at the ball, and Bryant made a tumbling catch of a 37-yard pass from Romo in the back of the end zone with 10 seconds left that momentarily gave Dallas a 30-28 lead and sent the fans and the Cowboys into a wild celebration.

    Of course, the play had to go to instant replay. And it was clear from every angle, that as great a catch as Bryant made, as perplexed as Tom Coughlin said he was that Bryant got behind his defense, that four of Bryant’s fingers on his right hand were the first thing to hit the ground and they came down behind the end line in the back of the end zone."

    Giants Hold Off Late Cowboys' Rally By Inches

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1194340

    Excerpt: "he Dallas Cowboys nearly pulled off an incredible come-from-behind win against the defending Super Bowl champions. But it’s hard to beat Eli Manning and the Giants at the comeback game.

    After blowing all of an early 23-0 lead against the Cowboys, the Giants managed to rally with two fourth-quarter field goals, which were just enough to spoil Jerry Jones’ ***-kicking plans with a wild, 29-24 win. It still came down to the heart-stopping final moments, though, when a resurgent Tony Romo hit Dez Bryant in the end zone with six seconds remaining.

    But after making the catch, Bryant landed on his left hand which was about an inch out of bounds. The officials first signaled a touchdown, but it was correctly overturned after a review.

    When they were finally able to breath again, the Giants celebrated a successful first half of their season which ended with them holding a 6-2 record and a 2 ˝-game lead in the NFC East. And Manning had secured the 25th fourth-quarter comeback of his remarkable career.

    Manning and the Giants’ offense had little to do with that, though. Manning was a disappointing 15 of 29 for 192 yards. But he was backed by a defense that forced three early interceptions from Romo (35 for 58, 427 yards).

    That allowed them to build an early 23-point lead, but they threw it all away by surrendering 24 unanswered points in the second and third quarters.

    Manning, though, shook off an ugly 9-for-23 start and quickly moved the Giants down the field for a 43-yard field goal by Lawrence Tynes at the start of the fourth quarter, giving them a 26-24 lead with 10:20 left in the game." Read more...

    Close Call Favors Giants As They Beat Cowboys, Takes Control of NFC East

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...HIAIRJwQ2wLzTN

    Excerpt: " You got to give the Giants a hand.

    The tip of Dez Bryant’s right hand.

    That was the difference between a colossal blown lead and what turned into a rousing and exceedingly difficult and yet, for the Giants, satisfying 29-24 victory over the Cowboys in a game that had to be seen to be believed.

    It looked as if the Giants had blown this one when, with six seconds remaining, Tony Romo uncorked a 37-yard pass to Dez Bryant, who beat Corey Webster and Michael Coe and made a leaping catch in the end zone. Touchdown.

    As the 94,067 at Cowboys Stadium erupted, replays showed that Bryant on the way tumbling down grazed the white turf out of the end zone with the tip of his right hand. A booth replay review reversed the call as the crowd howled."

    Ten seconds were put back on the clock and Romo got the Cowboys to the Giants 28-yard line when his final pass sailed out of the end zone.

    Just wild.

    It was easy, then it was exceedingly difficult and then it was a typical Giants-Cowboys game, which is to say wild, wacky, tight, taut and – eventually – a game for the Giants to savor.

    It is rare when a team can win despite blowing a 23-point lead but that’s what the Giants did. They led 23-0 early in the second quarter, trailed 24-23 late in the third quarter and never really regained control. But they did regain the lead, thanks largely to Lawrence Tynes making his fourth and fifth consecutive field goals and then hanging on for dear life." Read more...

    Excerpt: "Turning point

    Somehow Dez Bryant got behind the Giants’ secondary and made the catch. But fortunately for Corey Webster, Michael Coe and the rest of the defense, after further review, officials correctly ruled via replay that Bryant’s right hand touched down out of bounds before he established possession. With the TD off the board, the Giants had to survive three more plays over the final 10 seconds, and they did to leave with a thrilling victory.

    Victor Cruz Hurting

    http://www.northjersey.com/sports/17...z_hurting.html

    Excerpt: "Cruz hurting

    Victor Cruz said he was fine after the game, but the Paterson native clearly was hurting.

    He had two catches for 23 yards and was drilled by Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh in what turned out to be an interception for Danny McCray.

    "I’m good. A little bruised up, a little nicked up, but I’m all right," Cruz said. "I got the wind knocked out of me in my stomach and I got kicked in the calf as well. Just a bunch of little nicks and pains, but I’ll be all right. I came right back in after that."
    A pick and a dunk

    Jason Pierre-Paul finished off last season’s road victory against Dallas by blocking a field goal attempt that would have forced overtime. His interception and return for a touchdown in the second quarter Sunday certainly did not finish anything, but it was quite a punctuation mark to a dominating first half." Read more...

    Giants Hold On For Thrilling, 29 - 24, Win Over Cowboys

    http://www.northjersey.com/sports/Gi...r_Cowboys.html

    Excerpt: "The Giants survived - barely - and for the second straight year left Cowboys Stadium with a riveting triumph, once again thanks to a hand in Sunday’s 29-24 triumph.

    Last year it was Jason Pierre-Paul blocking a last-second field goal.

    This time it was Dez Bryant’s left hand on a potential game-winning touchdown with 10 seconds remaining.

    He was initially granted the scoring reception with Corey Webster and Michael Coe in coverage in the back of the end zone, setting off a raucous celebration. But after review, officials correctly ruled that, although Bryant made the catch, his left hand touched out of bounds before he could establish possession in the field of play.

    The Cowboys had three more chances as Tony Romo completed a pass to Jason Witten, then misfired inside the 5 to Garfield native Miles Austin, off his fingertips. That left one second on the clock and, after a timeout, Romo threw out of the end zone intended for Austin as time expired." Read more...

    *The Giants have six of their last eight games vs. Dallas.

    *This is the third year in a row and the sixth time in Tom Coughlin’s nine seasons as head coach that the Giants have been 6-2 at midseason. They were also 6-2 in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2010 and 2011, 5-3 in 2004 and 2009, and 7-1 in 2008.

    *The Giants are 3-1 on the road this season, with victories at Carolina, San Francisco and Dallas. They lost at Philadelphia.

    *The Giants avenged a season-opening loss to Dallas and improved to 4-0 in Cowboys Stadium, which opened in 2009. The four victories have been by a total of 16 points.

    Giants Defeat Cowboys, 29 - 24, In Thrilling, Yet Ugly Fashion

    http://www.giants101.com/2012/10/28/...-ugly-fashion/

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys played one for the ages down in Arlington today. After storming to a 23-0 lead midway through the second quarter off four Dallas turnovers, the Giants were unable to generate any offense as the Cowboys fought back to take a 24-23 lead into the fourth quarter. Although the Giants looked lifeless on both sides of the ball at times today, the defense made plays down the stretch and put the offense in a position to take back the lead.

    The Giants benefited from six Cowboys turnovers, including four Tony Romo interceptions. Despite excessive turnovers, Dallas' offense was able to move the ball down the field on the Giants seemingly at will. Jason Witten had 18 receptions for 167 yards and a touchdown, while Miles Austin and Dez Bryant each had over 100 receiving yards themselves. However, Lawrence Tynes went 5 for 5 on field goals and the Giants defense held up despite two late fourth quarter Dallas drives that nearly yielded touchdowns.As always, let's take a look at the good, the mixed, and the ugly from today's matchup.

    The Good

    Stevie Brown

    Brown came up with two interceptions and a fumble recovery on the day. Furthermore, he tied for the team lead in tackles for the game, with six. Brown was around the ball throughout the entire day and came up big when the Giants needed him to. With that, he never tried to do to much. He played his run/pass keys well, read Tony Romo's eyes and was always where he was supposed to be on the field.

    Brown now has six interceptions on the year and has filled in admirably for the injured Kenny Phillips. The Giants are going to have a tough time taking Brown out of the lineup when Phillips is healthy enough to play.

    Lawrence Tynes

    Tynes was 5 for 5 on field goals for the day. Although the Giants should have been able to get to the end zone more than twice, Tynes bailed out Big Blue and put 15 points on the board tonight . His two fourth quarter field goals regained the lead for the Giants and put Dallas in a hole that they could not climb back out of.

    It's hard to put into words how impactful Tynes has been this season. He's been automatic from inside of 50-yards and has allowed the Giants to overcome their offensive issues in the red zone. While he is generally unreliable from longer distances, he is as accurate as any kicker in the league while kicking from inside the 35 yard line." Read more...

    Excerpt: "It might have been by a fingertip, but New York Giants' coach Tom Coughlin will take Sunday's 29-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

    "We're happy to win, no doubt. It was a struggle from the get go. We certainly did have our opportunities... we did get the turnovers. I think we had six to their two, but we didn't take advantage of them the way we should have," Coughlin said during his post-game press conference. "The touchdowns certainly would have made a big difference. I kept calculating in the first half if those field goals were touchdowns. All that momentum changed in the second quarter. That's the game. That's the way it is in this division. Every time we come here it's a nail biter in some way, shape or form."

    What did Coughlin think of the play on which Dez Bryant was ruled out of bounds?
    "It was reported down to me right away that that is what happened, that the hand was out of bounds. It was just a matter of the official having the necessary time to make that call," Coughlin said. "But I must say it's been a long time since I've seen three plays in 10 seconds. That was an incredible thing that happened there. We thought it was over." Read more...

    Giants 29, Cowboys 24: Giants Win By A Few Inches

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/10/2...plete-coverage

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants are now 4-0 in Cowboys Stadium, but only by a matter of inches. Dez Bryant's fingertips being just inches -- maybe only an inch -- out of bounds on a potential 37-yard game winning touchdown were all that separated the Giants from turning what looked like a rousing victory into a demoralizing loss.

    This was a game the Giants won early, blasting out to a 23-0 lead early in the second quarter thanks to four early Cowboys' turnovers, three off interceptions by Dallas quarterback Tony Romo.

    Then, the Giants lost it. Ahmad Bradshaw's fumble early in the second quarter seemed to kill the Giants' momentum and the Cowboys roared back to take a 24-23 lead after three quarters.

    Then, the Giants won it again. They got a pair of Lawrence Tynes' field goals in the fourth quarter to take a 29-24 lead and Stevie Brown seemed to seal the deal with his second interception and the fourth of Romo with 1:14 to play." Read more...

    Giants Survive Late Game Scare, Top Cowboys 29 - 24

    http://insidefootball.com/blog/archives/5401

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants made it 4-0 in “Jerry’s World” by surviving a late-game scare against the Dallas Cowboys whom they topped 2-24 to even their division record to 2-2 and improve their regular season mark to 6-2.

    New York, who jumped out to a 23-0 lead, got five field goals form kicker Lawrence Tynes, who matched his highest single game output this season? Following a dominating performance in the first 17 minutes of the game in which the Giants got interceptions from safety Stevie Brown, cornerback Corey Webster, and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, the Cowboys started to show some life later in the quarter.

    That started when quarterback Tony Romo got his team on the board after capping an eight-play, 72-yard drive that ended on a four-yard touchdown run by running back Felix Jones, the first of 24 unanswered points recorded by the Cowboys, who after making it 23-10 at the half on Dan Bailey’s 51-yard field goal, dominating third quarter 11:02 to the Giants’ 3:58.

    Romo started to connect with tight end Jason Witten, who finished with a season high 18 receptions for 167 yards as Dallas got third-quarter scores on a one-yard Romo touchdown run and a one-yard pass to tight end John Phillips to take a 24-23 lead." Read more...

    Jason Garrett Defends Tony Romo After Crushing Loss

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...-crushing-loss

    Excerpt: "The Dallas Cowboys won't survive too many more of these.

    When you come back from 23-0 down to take the lead, you need to find a way to finish. The Cowboyscouldn't, turning Jerrah World into a mausoleum in a 29-24 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.

    What else is new

    Since we're talking the Cowboys, much of the blame will fall on Tony Romo. The beleaguered quarterback threw three first-half interceptions to put his team in a deep hole. His central role in the Dallas comeback effort should count for something, but it doesn't to the legions who doubt him.

    "It's a hard league, it's a hard position," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said after the game. "When you look around the league, this is not the first time a quarterbacks have thrown interception in games. I was really proud how he responded and brought our team back to give us a great chance to win that ballgame at the end." Read more...

    Dallas Cowboys Lose Tough One To NY Giants

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...ew-york-giants

    Excerpt: "Just when you think the Dallas Cowboys have discovered every excruciating way to lose a game, they find a way to top themselves.
    They fell short to the New York Giants 29-24 on Sunday night when a Dez Bryant 37-yard touchdown catch with 10 seconds left in the game was overturned on review. Bryant made a fantastic effort, but replays showed his hand hit out of bounds before his posterior hit inbounds. The Giantsremain undefeated in the house that Jerry Jones built.
    This loss had so many ingredients we've grown accustomed to with these Cowboys.

    Excruciating turnovers

    Dallas turned over the ball six times. Giants pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul made an insane leaping grab of a screen pass from Tony Romo and took it back for a touchdown. Bryant appeared to run a poor route on one of Romo's four interceptions. Bryant also fumbled a punt. Miles Austin didn't compete for a jump ball on another pick. Felix Jones lost a fumble in the fourth quarter with the Cowboys trailing by two points." Read more...

    Giants Ride Roller Coaster Again

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...big-blue-big-d

    Excerpt: "Osi Umenyiora saw the officials lift their arms up to the enormous Cowboys Stadium ceiling and his stomach began churning.

    "Sickness," Umenyiora said of what he felt when he saw Dez Bryant come down with the potential game-winning touchdown with 10 seconds remaining. "I felt pretty sick."

    High above the field in the press box, Giants co-owner John Mara, who typically lives and dies with every play, was riding an emotional roller coaster. He had watched his team storm out to a commanding 23-0 lead only to lose it in just more than a quarter, then come back and take the lead.But now here was Tony Romo, who was practically booed by the entire state of Texas in a disastrous first half, attempting to lead the kind of dramatic comeback his counterpart, Eli Manning, usually executes.With 16 seconds left on a second-and-6 from the Giants' 37, Romo hit Bryant, who had somehow gotten behind the Giants' prevent defense, in the back of the end zone.Bryant got past Corey Webster and caught the ball before Michael Coe could get there while hurtling toward the back of the end zone. He planted his right hand on the back line as he came crashing down. Initially, the officials ruled it a touchdown catch.But Bryant had planted a couple of fingers out of bounds and the Giants escaped Texas with a 29-24 victory." Read more...

    Prince flasahes "Puppy Dog Face" To Get Call Reversed

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...-call-reversed

    Excerpt: "Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara didn’t raise a ruckus when a potentially devastating interference flag was thrown with over a minute to play and with New York clinging to a 29-24 lead.

    On the contrary.

    “I gave him my puppy dog face,’’ Amukamara said. “You know, kind of sad. I’m not sure if it worked, but they picked up the flag.’’

    The Giants held off Dallas, 29-24, to improve to 6-2.

    Amukamara had been warned earlier by an official that his coverage was teetering on the edge.

    “I was warned, but I’m an aggressive corner, I like to put my hands on them,’’ Amukamara said.

    He was sure that on the play that produced his puppy dog face, he did not interfere with Dallas receiver Kevin Ogletree.

    “I couldn’t believe it,’’ Amukamara said. “He was the one grabbing me. “The ball was overthrown and we were both touching each other. Usually in that situation the call does go to the offense. Thank goodness they reversed it.’’ Read more...

    Pierre-Paul Shows Off Basketball Skills

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...-skills-in-win

    Excerpt: "Jason Pierre-Paul patiently went through a description of his 28-yard interception return.

    But what he really wanted to talk about was what happened after he reached the end zone. A one-handed dunk over the crossbar.

    “Did you see the dunk?’’ Pierre-Paul, breaking into a grin, asked the reporters. “I've got some basketball skills.’’

    Pierre-Paul’s second-period touchdown helped the Giants defeat Dallas, 29-24.

    Pierre-Paul seems to save his biggest plays for the Giants' trips to Dallas. In the very same end of the field at Cowboys Stadium in 2011, Pierre-Paul blocked a Dallas field goal to preserve a 37-34 New York victory.

    Instead of rushing Tony Romo on the interception play, Pierre-Paul drifted to his right, toward the sideline. “I was supposed to rush, but I was kind of being patient on my rush. [Romo] always backs up and takes a step to the right on that kind of play,’’ Pierre-Paul said.

    Romo tried to float the ball to running back Felix Jones in the flat, but basketball skills came in handy for Pierre-Paul. Snatching the football with two hands was a lot like pulling down a rebound." Read more...

    Giants Lose 23 point lead, then escape Cowboys

    http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/n...meId=321028006

    Excerpt: "The New York Giants are still undefeated at Cowboys Stadium after another comeback victory under Eli Manning.

    None were quite like this one, the 20th time in Manning's career the Giants rallied from behind in the fourth quarter.


    Lawrence Tynes kicked two of his five field goals in the fourth quarter and the NFC East-leading Giants won 29-24 Sunday after blowing a 23-point lead -- and before the Cowboys thought they had a game-winning play with 10 seconds left.

    New York (6-2) led 23-0 just 2 minutes into the second quarter when defensive end
    Jason Pierre-Paul returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown. That was the third of four interceptions thrown by Tony Romo, and among six turnovers by Dallas (3-4).

    But the Giants didn't score again until Tynes made a 43-yard field goal with 10:20 left for a 26-24 lead. He added a 37-yarder with 3 1/2 minutes left after
    Stevie Brown recovered a fumble, and yet that still wasn't enough even though Brown had his second interception of the game after that.

    Dallas got to the Giants 19 after Tynes' last field goal. On fourth-and-1 with 1:03 left, Romo was scrambling when he threw the ball and it was picked off by Brown at the 17.

    Coughlin: Cowboys' Clock Was Stuck On One Second

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...econd/related/

    Excerpt: "Giants coach Tom Coughlin hinted after Sunday’s game that the Cowboys may have been aided by a hometown clock operator.

    In his post-game press conference, Coughlin indicated that he thought the Cowboys got an extra second, and therefore an extra play, at the end of the game, which the Giants won 29-24 at Cowboys Stadium.

    “It’s been a long time since I saw three plays in 10 seconds,” Coughlin said. “I thought that was an incredible thing to have happen right there. I mean, we thought it was over, with the high ball over the middle. I looked up and the thing was stuck on one.” Read more...

    Eagles Lose Again As Frustration Mounts And Changes Loom
    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "The Giants somehow, someway, avoided a disastrous collapse yesterday against the Cowboys and left Dallas with a 29-24 win. More importantly, they made it back to New Jersey safely last night shortly after 1 a.m. with Hurricane Sandy looming.

    Things were already stormy in Philadelphia yesterday as the Eagles were plastered at home 30-17 by the undefeated Falcons to fall to 3-4 on the season. It was Andy Reid's first loss following a bye in his 14 seasons as head coach.

    This morning, two weeks after Reid fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, more criticism, concerns and questions are swirling.

    Michael Vick directly addressed the elephant in the room immediately after the loss: his job security. The question is whether Reid would make the move. On paper, Vick's performance on Sunday was far from his worst. He went 21-of-35 with 191 yards and a touchdown. Most importantly, he didn't record a turnover. But Reid still said "he can play better." Read more...

    It seems this is going to be a cardiac season. Thank goodness the D played well.
    I am a little concerned about how Eli is playing the last two games, is his baby teething and keeping him up all night.
    Cruz getting "stonehands" didn't help any either.

    A win is a win and a decent lead in the Division is icing on the cake, I guess. Hope the O gets out of the funk next week.

    Thanks for the news RF!

    Eli has been inconsistent all of his football life but he is ON more than he is OFF and that certainly shows up in his numbers. We had receivers dropping passes, passes missing the mark, and, yet again, an anemic running game. Still the W is what ultimately decides who the team is and I'd rather have that than a perfect game.

    I am right there with you, I aged enough to be the oldest living Giants' fan.

    But I'd rather be talking how bad the win was than how good the loss was
