The New York Giants, despite forcing six turnovers Sunday, had to hold off a last-second Cowboys (3-4) drive to hang on and win 29–24.

The Cowboys had five shots in Giants territory in the remaining seconds and nearly had the game-winning score had Dez Bryant’s hand not come down partly out-of-bounds at the back of the end zone with just 10 seconds remaining. The play was originally ruled a touchdown until the play was reviewed.

Though Eli Manning and the Giants offense didn’t look their sharpest in being out-gained 434 yards to 293, Dallas quarterback Tony Romo was intercepted four times and the team lost two fumbles. The Giants turned it over twice and won with five Lawrence Tynes field goals.

Three Cowboys receivers had better than 100 yards receiving led by tight end Jason Witten who totaled a career-best 18 catches for 167 yards. Romo threw for 437 yards.
