Cowboys 17, Giants 15: Second Half Open Thread

Cris Collinsworth accurately described this one as a "track meet." The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys are pretty much going up and down the field, with the Cowboys leading at halftime, 17-15, in the Sunday night game at Cowboys Stadium.

The Giants have a safety courtesy of a Jason Pierre-Paul sack of Tony Romo, two Lawrence Tynes field goals and a Brandon Jacobs' one-yard touchdown run.

The Cowboys have two Romo touchdown passes and a field goal from Dan Bailey.

Thing is, it feels to me like the Giants could have more. They have had to settle for two short field goals after trips into the red zone.

Ahmad Bradshaw never got off the bench in the first half for the Giants after apparently violating team curfew, according to NBC. Jacobs ran for 62 yards on 13 first-half carries.

Eli Manning, who has been under heavy duress even without being sacked, is 9-of-19 for 146 yards. Hakeem Nicks already has 105 receiving yards on four catches.
