3. The Giants can't go 15 minutes without suffering a concerning injury

As has been the case throughout the year, injuries kept piling up for the Giants against Dallas. In the first half, hearts dropped to the floor when Andrew Thomas went down with what looked to be a serious knee injury. Thankfully, after he was carted back to the locker room, Thomas was just fine and was able to return to action.

However, later on in the action, star pass-rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux got injured on a play and he was ruled out for the rest of the contest with a concussion. With the lack of depth at pass-rusher, this was bad news for Wink Martindale. Things were only made worse with Deonte Banks injuring his ankle. Because of this, Tre Hawkins III came into action and Dallas made NY pay:

Yup, that was a perfect throw and catch for the Cowboys. Banks, the No. 24 overall pick in last April's NFL Draft, has been stellar this year, so the hope is that he won't miss extended time. The same can be said for Thibodeaux, who has been great in his second campaign. With the season being a lost cause, though, there shouldn't be any rush to get them back before they're fully ready.
