The Giants were up by 10 points with just under six minutes remaining Sunday night in Texas, but allowed the Cowboys to race back into it. The Giants were unable to score from the 1-yard line with under two minutes left and Tony Romo orchestrated a phenomenal six play, 72-yard touchdown drive to give Dallas a come-from-behind, 27-26 victory at home.
New York head coach Tom Coughlin will surely be under pressure in the coming days for not running the ball at the 1.
Jason Witten scored the winning TD for Dallas.
The brutal fourth quarter ruined what was a stellar defensive performance by the Giants defense early on. Trumaine McBride came up huge for the Giants, as he stripped Cole Beasley in the second quarter and allowed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to scoop up the ball and rush in for a 57-yard touchdown.
McBride also picked off Romo with eight and a half minutes left in the fourth and returned it 19 yards. McBride’s interception directly led to a Rashad Jennings touchdown run that gave the Giants a 23-13 lead.
