Season Fading Fast as Cowboys Fall to Giants in Heartbreaker 29-24

Six turnovers. Down at one point 23-0. Yet in the end, the Cowboys still had a chance to beat the Giants.

The problem is, the team that many felt were ready to unseat the Giants for the top spot in the NFC East once again came up short, as it was a game of inches in the end, as the Cowboys fell to New York 29-24.

The Cowboys appeared to have scored a go-ahead TD in the last 30 seconds when Dez Bryant made a leaping catch in the end zone, but officials reviewed and overturned the apparent 37-yard touchdown catch, ruling his hand hit out of bounds.

The ruling was right, and a few moments later the Cowboys were headed to a 3-4 mark, letting the Giants walk out of their stadium 6-2 and firmly in control of the NFC East.

Tony Romo threw for a career-high 437 yards while completing 36 of 62 passes. Jason Witten broke his own Cowboys team record with 18 catches, which resulted in 167 yards. Miles Austin had nine catches for 133 yards and Bryant had five catches for 110 yards.

It was all for not, as Romo also threw four picks, one of which was returned by Jason Pierre-Paul for a 28-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Stevie Brown came up with two picks and a fumble recovery as well for New York.

The loss was the third in four games for the Cowboys, who have now lost all four games to the Giants in their new stadium in Dallas.

Lawrence Tynes kicked five field goals for the Giants, and Eli Manning helped the Giants build a 23-0 lead in the second quarter, he went 15 of 29 for 192 yards with an interception.

“We put our defense in some really difficult situations,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. “The early turnovers were too much to overcome.”

Things won’t get any easier for the Cowboys, who next Sunday night play the 7-0 Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome.
