The Giants dodged a few bullets today to take a commanding lead in the NFC East. The Giants now stand at 6-2, and 2-2 in the division, while all the other teams have just 3 wins.
The Giants held the Cowboys to 19 yards rushing on 17 attempts today. The were the recipient of 6 turnovers as mentioned in the title. They did not convert those turnovers into enough points, and therefore needed to hold on to win in the end. With just 10 seconds remaining the Cowboys scored what they thought was the winning touchdown, however Dez Bryant’s finger tips landed out of bounds after making the catch. The Giants now improve to 4-0 all time in the Cowboys new Billion Dollar stadium…We want to take the time here to thank Jerry Jones for building it.
The Giants have some areas to work on, but beating a desperate team at home today shows how good this team can be. The fact that they actually lost a 23 point lead is alarming in itself, but it shows you need to take advantage of your opportunities, and you must play a full 60 minutes. This game wrang every ounce of emotion out of both teams and the fans for the full 60 minutes. The Giants did run for 103 yards on 28 attempts with most of them coming exactly when they needed it. With 4 sacks on defense and 4 interceptions they certainly played well enough to win, and also to serve notice they are still a resilient team.
