It might have been by a fingertip, but New York Giants' coach Tom Coughlin will take Sunday's 29-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

"We're happy to win, no doubt. It was a struggle from the get go. We certainly did have our opportunities... we did get the turnovers. I think we had six to their two, but we didn't take advantage of them the way we should have," Coughlin said during his post-game press conference. "The touchdowns certainly would have made a big difference. I kept calculating in the first half if those field goals were touchdowns. All that momentum changed in the second quarter. That's the game. That's the way it is in this division. Every time we come here it's a nail biter in some way, shape or form."

What did Coughlin think of the play on which Dez Bryant was ruled out of bounds?

"It was reported down to me right away that that is what happened, that the hand was out of bounds. It was just a matter of the official having the necessary time to make that call," Coughlin said. "But I must say it's been a long time since I've seen three plays in 10 seconds. That was an incredible thing that happened there. We thought it was over."


Coughlin said safety Antrel Rolle, who left the game late in the fourth quarter, hit his head on the ground. There is no word yet on whether or not Rolle has a concussion.
