What others are saying

Let's take a look around on this glorious day to be a New York Giants fan and see what others are saying about Sunday's victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Let's start over at Blogging the Boys, where Dave Halprin is struggling to come to grips with the end of the Cowboys' season.

The Giants took that game. When they marched for a TD in under a minute to close the half they served notice they were here to play. In the second half, they just outplayed us, all with a bum secondary, another reminder of last year's playoff failure. The Giants wanted it more and they weren't the ones getting tight and playing scared football. They were better than us today and they proved it. They finished the game, they ripped the prize from our hands.

Looking back, Dallas did dominate the game statistically, but mistakes doomed the Cowboys.

The Giants did not engage Patrick Crayton in a war of words before the game, but afterwards they weren't shy in taking some shots at the Dallas receiver, who dropped two key passes.

One more note about the Cowboys, this one somewhat light-hearted. The New York Post says it hired a Jessica Simpson look-alike to sit behind the Cowboys' bench Sunday. Apparently, it worked.

New York Daily News columnist Mike Lupica points out that Eli is the last Manning standing, and says he did well by the family name on Sunday.

He is making plays. He is the one not turning the ball over, not against the Bucs, not against the Cowboys yesterday, on the day he played the Giants all the way to Lambeau. You don't have a defining moment in Tampa Bay against a mediocre Bucs team. You have it here, against the Cowboys.

Talk all about the defense and the job it did holding the Cowboys without a touchdown in the second half. Talk them up all the way to Lambeau. It doesn't happen this way if Eli doesn't take them down the field at the end of the first half the way he did, if he doesn't do it again in the fourth.

The Giants' defense came up big when it counted.
