Cowboys Vs. Giants Score: Hakeem Nicks Puts New York Up 31-14

Trailing by 10 with just over five minutes to go, the Dallas Cowboys were held to a three and out and were forced to punt the football back to the Giants. Eli Manning and company went right back to work and wasted little time in extending the lead to 31-14.

Manning marched the Giants 45 yards in just four plays including two big passes to Hakeem Nicks on the drive. Nicks hauled in a four yard scoring pass to complete the drive.

Manning is now up to 346 yards passing in the game and just threw his third touchdown of the game. After not practicing for much of the week, Nicks came through with a big 36 yard catch that set up the touchdown. Nicks has five catches for 76 yards in the game.
