The Cowboys, with Tony Romo at QB, have exactly one playoff game. The Giants with Eli Manning at QB, have won four – all in the same postseason. In three other postseasons, they were one and done.
To say that both still have much to prove, even though their numbers are impressive, is an understatement. Eli needs to show the world he can still win the big game for the Blue. Romo has to show that he can do it, period.
In any event, you must admit both of them are fun to watch. This season, Eli’s 2011 fourth quarter QB rating of 120.5 is the league’s best. Romo has a career fourth quarter QB rating of 100.4, the best among active NFL QBs. Don’t turn this game off, because it will come down to the final seconds.
When Romo is is good the Cowboys usually win. That’s been the case when he plays the Giants (4-3 record, 1,651 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and seven INTs) but in general he’s been erratic. One month up, one month down:

Week 14 in the NFL will see the New York Giants and Eli Manning attempt to end their four game losing streak and regain NFC East supremacy as they take on the Dallas Cowboys. Then in a must win game, Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals play host to T.J. Yates and the Houston Texans. And finally in a South Beach showdown the Philadelphia Eagles will take on the surging Miami...
The Cowboys have begun their annual meltdown and Bill Barnwell is looking for the scapegoat. I agree with most of his assessments except (and I never thought I'd say this) blaming Tony Romo for the loss. Romo gave up a horrific safety and missed Miles Austin once but other than that had a pretty good game. In the end however the Cowboys lost because they couldn't stop...
Well, it didn’t take very long to find my new pet-peeve. It came to fruition on Sunday night, with Candace Crawford bouncing around like a ******* in Tony Romo’s jersey. I hate it. I hate when the WAG wears the husbands jersey in the crowd. It irritates me.
I understand I’m probably a cold-hearted, negative jerkoff, but you don’t like what you don’t like. Yeah, it’s...
Oh, Tim Tebow. Think you've got the NFL world wrapped around your pretty little finger, do you? Think you're the only one with a knack for pulling out miraculous victories that have a distinct whiff of divine intervention? WELL YOU ARE WRONG.
I'm sorry, Tebow. But you aren't the ONLY miracle-maker this NFL season. There is ANOTHER. It's true! There are...
The Star-Ledger's Mike Garafolo analyzes Giants' thrilling victory in Dallas
Eli Manning threw a 47-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Marion Manningham and the New York Giants had a 22-20 lead over the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys after three quarters on Sunday night.
Eli Manning ended New York's four-game losing streak in style, leading the Giants to two touchdowns in the final 3:14 to beat the Dallas Cowboys 37-34 Sunday night in a showdown for first place in the NFC East. Dallas appeared to tie the game with a 47-yard field goal as time expired, but New York called a timeout.
He may have been a bit erratic in his ability to lead the New York Giants within an unsystematic division. In criticizing Eli Manning’s quarterback misery in a town where the media is critical with underperforming athletes, unafraid to boldly mock and taunt a player in a tabloid piece, he has silent his detractors by piloting the Giants to beat the Dallas Cowboys 37-34 Sunday night...
A lot of folks are quick to point out that Tony Romo has a less-than-stellar history in the month of December, but he isn’t the only fellow with such a history working at Valley Ranch these days. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has also had a pretty poor relationship with this month in the past, though, really, the numbers show that the teams he’s worked for as a defensive coordinator...
Tom Coughlin said he'd like to be able to sneak inside the huddle during exciting moments in games, such as the fourth-quarter touchdown drives Sunday night, just to hear what Eli Manning is saying.
The Giants took Sunday night's NFC East slugfest vs. the Cowboys 37-34 in Big D. New York is back on top of the division with a 7-6 mark while Dallas drops to the same record. Placekicker Don Bailey came on in the closing seconds to attempt a tying field goal, but the attempt was blocked by defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.
Quarterback Eli Manning was once again...
Deja Vu for Dallas as Kicker Has FG Blocked After Being Iced
By Jon Wagner
One final lead change resulted in another one of much greater significance as the New York Giants scored the last 15 points in the final 3:14 to shock the Dallas Cowboys, 37-34, at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday night and wrest control of the NFC East from the Cowboys with three weeks remaining in the regular season...
