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.
As a rookie, Morris Claiborne experienced plenty of growing pains but showed early signs of future potential. With a new defensive coordinator in Monte Kiffin bringing a new defensive style, Claiborne should become a real star in Dallas.
A lot is expected of a top-10 draft pick, no matter their position. See who will do what once the season kicks off.
