With starting running back Brandon Jacobs out with a knee injury, the Giants took to the air to win their sixth in a row. Manning threw for three touchdowns in his return to the scene of his Super Bowl MVP performance and the New York Giants beat Arizona 37-29 to snap the Cardinals’ seven-game home winning streak.
Manning completed 26 of 33 for 240 yards with no interceptions as the Giants moved to 10-1, tied for the best record in the NFL.
Terrell Owens broke out with seven catches for 213 yards and the Dallas defense played great when it had to, helping the Cowboys beat the San Francisco 49ers 35-22 Sunday. Tony Romo was 23-of-39 for 341 yards and three touchdowns in his second game playing with a splint protecting a broken pinkie on his passing hand.
Dallas (7-4) has won consecutive games for the first time since starting 3-0. With Seattle coming to Texas Stadium on Thursday, the Cowboys could distance themselves even more from their recent 2-4 rut and could go steaming into December in prime position for a wild-card playoff berth.
Clinton Portis gained 143 yards on 29 carries, including key runs late that helped preserve the Redskins’ first victory in almost a month, 20-17 over the Seattle Seahawks. It ended a two-game losing streak for Washington (7-4), which hosts the division-leading New York Giants (10-1) on Sunday.
The man, who goes by Doc, was outside a movie theater in Dallas when a stranger came up and offered to pay for him to see a movie. Planning on passing out fliers for a consignment store across the street for some cash, Doc declined. But then he realized that he had just turned down Tony Romo.
Doc then ran across the street, asked for the day off and ran back to the theater. Romo and Doc ended up sitting together watching the movie “Role Model.” Doc told the newspaper that he informed Romo that he hadn’t showered in days.
The Dallas Cowboys (5-4) have gone from Super Bowl favorites to third place in the NFC East by losing four of their last six games. The ‘Boys are 1-2 since Romo broke the pinkie on his throwing hand but had the same record in the three games before he got hurt.
Romo, who returned to practice during last week’s open date, is ready to get back on the field Sunday night when the Cowboys play the Redskins in Washington. Romo doesn’t expect the pinkie to affect his game.
NYG 21 PIT 14
The Pittsburgh Steelers, stretched thin by injuries and their own mistakes, repeatedly kept the New York Giants out of their end zone. A game the Steelers were controlling turned dramatically when they couldn’t stay out of that end zone themselves.
Eli Manning threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Boss with 3:11 remaining for the Giants’ only touchdown after they tied it several minutes before on a bizarre safety. The defending champs are now 6-1 and atop the NFC East.
WASH 25 DET 17
Santana Moss scored twice, including a punt return for 80 yards early in the fourth quarter, scoring what proved to be Washington’s game winning touchdown in a 25-17 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
The Redskins are now at 6-2 for the first time since 2000 with the win.
TB 9 DAL 13
In a slow day of offense in Big D the Dallas Cowboys edged out Jeff Garcia and the Bucs to take a 13-9 victory. Brad Johnson went 19-for-33 for 122 yards with 1 TD and no interceptions filling in for Tony Romo. Terrell Owens had five catches for 33 yards. He has only 11 catches and 100 receiving yards in his past three games. The Cowboys move to 5-3 with the win.
Romo, who wanted to play last week with a broken pinkie on his throwing hand, said Wednesday the plan now is to return after the bye week.
This means the Pro Bowler would miss at least two more games: Sunday at Tampa Bay and the following week at the New York ‘Football’ Giants. The Cowboys then take a week off before returning to live action on Nov. 16 at Washington.
Romo appeared on TOs radio show and acknowledged the fact that he will indeed be out for this weeks contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
NYG 29 SF 17
Brandon Jacobs ran for two TDs, Eli Manning threw for one, Michael Johnson had two interceptions and the Giants managed to make fewer mistakes than the terrible San Francisco 49ers in a 29-17 victory on Sunday.
The victory was the fourth straight at home for the Giants (5-1) and it sent the 49ers (2-5) to their fourth straight loss.
WASH 14 CLE 11
The Washington defense gave up only 236 yards and nearly didn’t allow a touchdown for the second straight week. Carlos Rogers, nursing a calf injury, held Braylon Edwards to four catches. Demetric Evans knocked away a fourth-down pass near the goal line. Andre Carter had a sack for the Redskins (5-2), who have won five of six and bounced back from last week’s last-play loss to the St. Louis Rams.
STL 34 DAL 14
The 40-year-old backup quarterback couldn’t keep up with the surging St. Louis Rams’ offense, throwing three interceptions. Steven Jackson ran for 160 yards on 25 carries with three touchdowns and the Rams (2-4) looked like contenders instead of sad sacks for the second straight game under new coach Jim Haslett in a surprisingly easy 34-14 victory on Sunday. Dallas fell to 4-3 on the year with the loss and seem to be falling apart, more on that to come later.
Cowboy pretty boy Tony Romo informed his coaches on Wednesday that he is ready to play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams despite a broken pinkie finger which had an original diagnosis of four weeks to heal.
Romo did not practice on Wednesday but did throw the ball on the side with his fractured pinkie in a splint, and according to eyewitnesses, he was able to throw the ball with good velocity and appeared confident after throwing. The session was not open to bloggers however.
Hopefully Chris Long gets an unabated lane on the Dallas Q and zeros in on his throwing hand and crushes the quarterback landing directly on the pinkie. I wouldn’t mind.
