Cowboys Vs. Giants Score: Victor Cruz, Giants Strike First

The Giants have drawn first blood.

Facing 3rd-and-1, Eli Manning connected with Victor Cruz on a 74 yard touchdown pass, giving the Giants a 7-0 lead over the Dallas Cowboys in the first quarter.

The Cowboys and their defense had an opportunity to stop the Giants on a third down play earlier in the drive as well, but Bear Pascoe fought for extra yardage and picked up a first down.

Unfortunately for the Cowboys and their fans, New York's scoring drive ended the field position game that the Cowboys had started to win. Chris Jones had pinned the Giants down on their own four yard line, but, Manning, Cruz and the Giants drove 96 yards on six plays to jump out to a 7-0 lead.
