It was over when:
The Giants were in this game up until the start of the 4th quarter. The 4th quarter started with the Giants trailing the Cowboys by 21, then on the first play of the quarter Tony Romo threw a touchdown pass to Miles Austin to give the Cowboys a 28 point lead. The touchdown put a dagger in whatever hopes the Giants had of a comeback.
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo had his best game of this young season. He had zero interceptions, for the first time this season, he threw 4 touchdowns, completed 16 of 22 passes and finished the night with a total of 408 yards passing. Romo was asked about his performance after the game and said “I felt good out there today. I was in the zone, I had time in the pocket tonight to make those throws that I was missing in the first few games. I know I can play better, tonight was just a step in the right direction.”
Eli Manning had his worst game of the season. He threw for 124 yards, his lowest of the season, It was also the first time this season that Eli Manning threw zero touchdowns and 4 interceptions, the Cowboys scored on all four turn overs, it was also the first time this season he has been sacked 3 times in a game.
Another key stat was the Giants run
“It was pathetic the way we played today. Everyone is responsible for what happen out there on the field, including myself. I’m embarrassed by our play and effort, we’ll think about this tonight and tomorrow we’ll move on and get ready for our next game.” said Giants head coach Jeff Jarin during his post game conference.
This was the 3rd overall meeting between the Giants and Cowboys. It also meant it was the 3rd meeting between head coach Jeff Jarin and Cowboys headcoach Andres Perez. Coach Perez now leads the head to head match up 2-1.
Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick had the season’s and the league’s first and only blocked extra point try.
The Giants have lost two in a row for the first time this season.
It is the first game in which the Giants have only score 1 touchdown.
