There were a lot of things that went the Giants way in this game. The defense intercepted three Matt Cassell passes. Two of those interceptions were by Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, one of those picks he returned for a touchdown. The Giants also got a huge kick return for a touchdown by Dwayne Harris.

The Giants won the turnover battle and they made a huge play on special teams. This was exactly what the Giants needed. They finally took down the Cowboys and it doesn’t matter that Tony Romo and Dez Bryant weren’t playing. A win is a win and the Giants have nothing to apologize for here.

On a day where Manning had a pedestrian performance, the Giants were able to win. Manning was 13/24 for 170 yards which sounds like the stat line of a loss. The Giants defense really came through for this team. The Giants came up with the stops they needed to have.

The Giants got a strong showing from their rushing attack. Shane Vereen had 56 yards on just four carries. Orleans Darkwa had a break through performance with 8 rushes for 48 yards and a touchdown. The Giants were able to grind out a win in a tough game.

The Cowboys have a great offensive line and are about as solid of a roster as you’ll find in this league. This game wasn’t an easy one and nobody expected it to be. The important thing is that the Giants won and advanced to a record of 4-3.
