The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

Second-half open thread for Giants-Cowboys.

The New York Giants trail the Dallas Cowboys, 14-6, at halftime in a huge NFC East game for both teams.

The Cowboys took a 7-0 lead with 4:17 left in the first quarter on a 50-yard fumble return to Dallas defensive back Jeff Heath. Eli Manning completed a short pass to Victor Cruz, who had the ball ripped out of his hands by Orlando Scandrick. Heath scooped it up and run untouched for the score.

The Giants closed within 7-3 on a 21-yard field goal by Josh Brown with 12:40 left in the half. That capped a 10-play, 74-yard drive.

Dallas extended its lead to 14-3 with 9:37 left in the half on a  20-yard pass from Tony Romo to Jason Witten. That was the first passing touchdown the Giants have allowed since the second quarter of Week 6 against the Chicago Bears.

The Giants got a 23-yard field goal by Josh Brown to make the score 14-6 with 5:18 left in the first half. This marked the Giants' second trip inside the Dallas 10-yard line without a touchdown.

Manning finished the half 11-of-17 for 95 yards. Andre Brown ran 13 times for 59 yards and Brandon Jacobs four times for 49.

For Dallas, Romo completed 6-of-12 for 127 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
