It was an interesting game to say the least, with Eli Manning throwing an interception on a screen pass during the first play from scrimmage for New York. Manning would throw two more interceptions, including a back-breaker to Brandon Carr, who then returned the gift for a touchdown, putting the score at 36-24 with under two minutes to play.
Tony Romo had a better night, although he was battered behind an improved but still not great offensive line. Romo briefly left in the second quarter with an apparent rib injury, but played the rest of the game.
Over at Blogging The Boys, Dave Halprin wrote about Romo's toughness against the Giants:
Romo not only took the pain and put his body on the line after the big hit, he also threw his body into harm's way after his interception. Tom Ryle has a great post about that play, but I'll just say it was inspiring to see Romo make all that effort to tackle Ryan Mundy. Of course, at the moment half of my brain was saying get the heck out of there, don't get hurt. But the other half couldn't help but to be impressed with his effort.
Wilson was horrid Sunday night in the Giants' 36-31 loss, and his play alone is probably the biggest reason why the Giants are 0-1 instead of 1-0. He fumbled twice, once inside the Dallas 10-yard line and once resulting directly in a Dallas touchdown. He appeared to execute a screen pass poorly on the first play of the game, resulting in an interception. He whiffed on several blocks in pass protection. After the second fumble he went to the bench, got an earful from head coach Tom Coughlin, and watched Da'Rel Scott play the rest of the game.
