The Giants’  four-game winning streak at Cowboys Stadium was the longest for New York at Dallas. The Giants had won three straight at Texas Stadium between 1988 and 1990. This was the first time the Cowboys had ever played in a game with a final score of 36-31. The game marked the seventh time in the series where the Cowboys scored 36 or more points. The most points scored by the Cowboys against the Giants was 52 in 1966. The Cowboys trailed in every game in 2012. The Cowboys did not trail at all on Sunday night.
