Giants Take the Division Lead Over Cowboys, 17-10

The New York Giants hosted the Dallas Cowboys in one of the season's most important games. The Giants lost in overtime to the Cowboys earlier this season and at the start of this game shared the division lead but 0-1 in their season match ups with the Cowboys. The Giants were led by their defensive quarterback Antonio Pierce, who scored a touchdown after a Dallas fumble. The Giant's Offense was not as productive as prior weeks but they did enough to get the job done. Brandon Jacobs scored a one yard touchdown after a long gain by Tiki Barber and Feeley kicked a field goal after missing his first attempt. While the defense soared, the offense struggled. Tiki Barber rushed for 115 yards, but needed 30 carries to do it. Eli Manning completed only 12 of 31 passes for 152 yards and was intercepted twice by Aaron Glenn – once in the end zone and a second time to set up Dallas’ only touchdown.

The Giants advance to 8-4 and face a struggling Philadelphia Eagles team in Philadelphia next week. They should crush the Eagles considering they are without four of their top starters.
