Dallas led New York 34-22 with 3:30 remaining in the game but squandered the lead falling 37-34 and dropping behind the Giants in the NFC playoff race. Dan Bailey's 46 yard field goal attempt with just six seconds remaining was blocked sealing the victory for New York.
New York entered the fourth quarter leading 22-20 but would surrender fourteen straight points to the Cowboys. First, Tony Romo found Miles Austin on a six yard pass to retake the lead at 27-22. Later in the quarter, Romo found Dez Bryant all alone for a 52 yard scoring strike that made the score 32-22.
After that the Giants went to work marching 80 yards in just 2:27 seconds resulting in an Eli Manning to Jake Ballard eight yard touchdown reception. New York retook the lead on their next possession with a 58 yard drive capped off by a Brandon Jacobs one-yard run. D.J. Ware punched in the two-point conversion and the Giants led 37-34.
Dallas and Tony Romo weren't finished as they flew back down the field and got Bailey in position for the game-tying attempt with just six seconds remaining. Before Dallas could snap the ball, New York successfully called a time out just prior to the Cowboys snapping the ball. Bailey's attempt after the whistle was good but was for naught. His next attempt was blocked giving the Cowboys a very disappointing loss.
Tony Romo finished 21 of 31 for 321 yards and four touchdowns. Felix Jones stepped in for the injured DeMarco Murray and rushed for 106 yards. Laurent Robinson led all Dallas receivers with four catches for 137 yards.
Eli Manning had a huge day going 27 of 47 for 400 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Brandon Jacobs ran for 101 yards and two scores while Hakeem Nicks caught seven passes for 154 yards.
