Despite being statistically dominated, the New York Giants lead the Dallas Cowboys, 13-6, at halftime of their season-opening Sunday Night Football matchup.

The Giants scored 10 points in the final 1:12 of the first half to take the lead. A 57-yard fumble recovery for a score by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie gave the Giants a 10-6 advantage.

An interception by rookie linebacker Uani' Unga off a pass tipped by Jason Witten set up a 40-yard field goal by Josh Brown with 25 seconds left in the half.

The Giants had the ball for only 7:54 in the first half. The Cowboys had 202 total yards of offense to 86 for the Giants. Yet, the Giants lead.

Dallas' points came on field goals of 21 and 32 yards by Dan Bailey. Quarterback Tony Romo is 18-of-24 for 146 yards.

The Giants also get the ball to start the second half. Enjoy the second half!
