Harris Lifts Giants Late in Win vs. Cowboys
Tied 20-20 and having just allowed the game-tying touchdown, former Cowboy Dwayne Harris returned the subsequent kickoff 100 yards and provided the New York Giants with a win over their division rivals.
The win moves the G-Men to 4-3 overall. A loss moves the Cowboys to 2-4.
The Giants offense was unspectacular once again, as Eli Manning threw for just 170 yards and no scores. The low passing totals meant that the receivers didn't have much chance to get going either.
On the ground, the Giants used a combination of rushers to post a 100-yard performance.
Thus, it was the Harris play -- and the G-Men defense that came to play. The Giants intercepted Matt Cassel three times in the win - and the special teams forced a fumble on a punt as the Cowboys were about to get the ball back with a chance to tie the game in the final minute.
It was a good day overall for the Giants, who saw the Eagles lose as well in the NFC East.
