Cowboys vs Giants score: Tony Romo hosting a pick party, New York leads 23-0

It's hard to imagine a worse start for the Dallas Cowboys as the New York Giants lead 23-0 early in the second quarter at Cowboys Stadium.

The Giants looked determined for revenge from the opening kickoff as Eli Manning hooked up with Rueben Randle for a 56-yard bomb to set up a 41-yard Lawrence Tynes field goal.

The Cowboys' opening drive was the polar opposite with Tony Romo throwing a brutal interception to Stevie Brown on his sixth attempt of the game. With a short field, Tynes was able to easily drain another 37-yard field goal.

Romo's second interception came on his next pass attempt with Corey Webster getting in on the fun this time. Instead of settling for a field goal on this interception though, the G-men found pay dirt with running back Andre Brown pounding it in from one yard away.

After the teams traded some punts, Dez Bryant coughed up a punt to give Tynes his third field goal of the game. And just to continue with today's trend, Romo tossed his third interception of the day when the team got the ball back. Jason Pierre-Paul was the lucky recipient this time and the lanky defensive lineman took it to the house for a pick-six.
