SNF Radio Highlights and Recap: Giants 37 – Cowboys 34

12/11/2011

DALLAS (12/11/11) – Eli Manning led the Giants to 14 late fourth quarter points – and Jason Pierre-Paul blocked Dallas’ attempt at a game-tying field goal – as the New York Giants took control of first place in the NFC East with a wild, 37-34 victory on Sunday Night Football.

Manning connected with Jake Ballard to get New York (7-6) to within five points of the Cowboys (7-6), then drove his team 58 yards in 1:26 to set up Brandon Jacobs’ go-ahead touchdown with :51 remaining.

Tony Romo answered by getting the Cowboys into field goal range, but Dan Bailey’s 47-yard field goal was blocked. The teams now have identical records, with New York owning the tiebreaker. They’ll meet again at MetLife Stadium in Week 17.

Dave Sims and James Lofton called the action.
