Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes to Dez Bryant, the winner from 13 yards with 1:01 remaining, lifting the Dallas Cowboys to a comeback 31-28 victory over the New York Giants.
The Dallas Cowboys (7-3) head back to work after completing their bye week. The New York Giants (3-7) begin the process of playing out the string, but they do get a player back from the injury list this week.
The New York Football Giants (3-6) actually have the same record this year as they did last season, which speaks directly to the supposed rebuilding campaign that general manager Jerry Reese undertook in the off season. This week, Big Blue lost another player to the injured reserve list, as well as likely losing another starter to injury for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.
New England hopes its offensive line continues to play well when it meets Indianapolis.
As much as some would like to point to injuries as the main cause for the New York Giants’ (3-5) inferior record, Big Blue will be facing an opponent in the Seattle Seahawks who have listed 14 players on their injury report.
Andrew Luck threw for four touchdowns and the Colts’ defense kept Eli Manning and the Giants off balance in Indianapolis’ 40-24 romp on Monday night.
The New York Football Giants (3-4) entered their bye week coming off of two straight losses to division opponents and being outscored 58-21 in the process. Because of the hot starts by both the Dallas Cowboys (6-1) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-1), the G-men have very slim hope to be able to win the division.
Perhaps the reality of a 3-4 record has spurred the New York Giants into reviewing their roster, or maybe it is just a case of keeping options open. Whatever the reason, the G-men invited 15 players to workout with the team, including quarterback Terrelle Pryor and running backs Felix Jones and Alex Green.
Faithful fans of the New York Giants thought the team was coming of age through an early fall three game winning streak. But as the daylight grows shorter with each passing week, are we seeing the sun set on the Giants playoff chances?
The New York Football Giants (3-4) looked to restart their season against the first-Place Dallas Cowboys (6-1) after a disappointing loss last week to the Philadelphia Eagles. But New York did not particularly fare well on either side of the football in another losing effort, 31-21 at AT&T Stadium.
