The 31-24 win for the New York Giants over the Dallas Cowboys has opened the door for the Giants to make an impact in this the final month of the football season. Dallas, who looked great in the first 28 minutes of the game, totally could catch anyone and their secondary looked like Swiss cheese during the 2nd half. But the Giants had their own issues.
Even with two sacks on Tony Romo, the pass rush was here and there but you saw improvement from previous where there was pressure to speak of. And the special teams? A punt return for a touchdown from Domenik Hixon? That made perk up in my seat a little because I haven't seen a punt return for a touchdown since Chad Morton did it years ago. That is a threat that could only help the Giants down the stretch.
Offensively, Eli Manning didn't light the world on fire and his yards came on that big play to Brandon Jacobs but the running game must improve. 20 attempts between Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw is not getting the job done especially with weather getting cold and getting worse.
Overall, big plays reigned supreme in this game and the Giants made those plays. If Dallas have one of those Dallas Decembers, the possibilities are endless for what the Giants could accomplish in the last four games. Dallas has a tough schedule, the Eagles play NY and Dallas so if the Giants could win next week, that could start the footsteps up the NFC East.
