Cowboys 7, Giants 3: Second-Half Open Thread

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - SEPTEMBER 05: Linebacker Michael Boley 59 of the New York Giants runs with the ball after an interception as quarterback Tony Romo #9 of the Dallas Cowboys tries to tackle him during the 2012 NFL season opener at MetLife Stadium on September 5, 2012 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Nice celebration of the New York Giants' four Super Bowl titles before the opening kickoff against the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday night. Unfortunately, the Giants did not provide much in the way of fireworks after that in the first half.

The Giants got a field goal from Lawrence Tynes, but needed a touchdown after a Michael Boley interception set them up at the 2-yard line. The Cowboys got a touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Tony Romo to Kevin Ogletree with 1:07 left in the first half.

The same issues that plagued the Giants during their 7-7 start a season ago were in evidence in the first half.

The Giants rushed for only 23 yards on 12 carries. Victor Cruz dropped two easy passes and Martellus Bennett failed to haul in a third. Rookie David Wilson cost the Giants a scoring opportunity with a fumble, a problem he had throughout his college career.

Eli Manning completed 8-of-14 passes for 83 yards.
