Let's look back at Sunday's New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game a different way -- purely by looking at some of the numbers from the game.

This first set of numbers comes courtesy of the folks over at Blogging The Boys. It shows that the Giants did hold their own, although moral victories don't mean anything:

First Downs: Giants 20; Cowboys 20
Total plays: Giants 59; Cowboys 60
Total drives: Giants: 11; Cowboys: 11
Red zone effectiveness: Giants 2-2; Cowboys 3-3
Passing touchdowns: Eli Manning: 3; Tony Romo: 3
Penalties: Giants 6-40; Cowboys 6-46

0: The number of times Eli Manning was sacked. That coming one week after he and Ryan Nassib were sacked eight times.

2: The Giants have now given up more than 100 yards to an opposing running back in two straight games. DeMarco Murray has 128 Sunday. LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles had 149 the week before.

3: The number of losses behind the Cowboys and Eagles the Giants are.

4:The Giants have now lost all four games they have played this season against teams with winning records.

7: The number of consecutive games DeMarco Murray has now topped the 100-yard rushing mark.

+7.9: The insanely good Pro Football Focus grade received by Jason Pierre-Paul.

9: The number of consecutive second-half passes Tony Romo completed Sunday. Also the number of catches made by Dez Bryant.

11: The distance of Eli Manning's longest run of the season.

13: The number of yards gained by Odell Beckham on his first NFL carry, a reverse.

63: The number of snaps played by Beckham. That is every offensive snap the Giants had.

64.2: The Cowboys' third-down percentage. They converted nine-of-14 opportunities.

104: Yards rushing compiled by the Giants. They had been 3-0 this season when topping 100 yards rushing.

116.7: Manning's passer rating, his fourth rating above 100 this season.

The only numbers that really matters is the Giants' 3-4 record. These, though, do tell some interesting stories.
