The New York Giants are still undefeated at Cowboys Stadium after another comeback victory under Eli Manning. None were quite like this one, the 20th time in Manning's career the Giants rallied from behind in the fourth quarter. Lawrence Tynes kicked two of his five field goals in the fourth quarter and the NFC East-leading Giants won 29-24 Sunday after blowing a 23-point lead -- and before the Cowboys thought they had a game-winning play with 10 seconds left. New York (6-2) led 23-0 just 2 minutes into the second quarter when defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown. That was the third of four interceptions thrown by Tony Romo, among six turnovers by Dallas (3-4). But the Giants didn't score again until Tynes made a 43-yard field goal with 10:20 left for a 26-24 lead. He added a 37-yarder with 3 1/2 minutes left after Stevie Brown recovered a fumble, and yet that still wasn't enough even though Brown had his second interception of the game after that. Dallas got to the Giants 19 after Tynes' last field goal. On fourth-and-1 with 1:03 left, Romo was scrambling when he threw the ball and it was picked off by Brown at the 17. After New York failed to get a first down on three running plays and the Cowboys used all three of their timeouts, Dallas got the ball back with 44 seconds left at the 30. They got to the Giants 37 when Romo threw a pass that Dez Bryant caught between two defenders in the back of the end zone. The play was ruled a touchdown, and the Cowboys and the fans celebrated even as Bryant remained on the ground after coming down hard on his rear end. It was during that time that officials looked at the replay, then ruled that Bryant's hand touched out of bounds first and made it an incompletion. The Cowboys still got three more plays after that, a 10-yard pass to Jason Witten, and an incompletion to Miles Austin before Romo's pass on the final play of the game landed well out of the end zone. The Giants are 4-0 at Cowboys Stadium, Jerry Jones' football palace that opened in 2009 with a New York victory. Manning completed 15 of 29 passes for 192 yards with an interception. Romo threw for a career-high 437 yards while completing 36 of 62 passes with three 100-yard receivers. Witten broke his own Cowboys team record with 18 catches, which resulted in 167 yards. Austin had nine catches for 133 yards and Bryant had five catches for 110 yards. New York has won six of seven games since opening the season with a 24-17 loss to the Cowboys on Sept. 5. With losses by Philadelphia (3-4) and Washington (3-5) on Sunday, the Giants have a firm grasp on the NFC East lead halfway through their schedule. The Giants led 13-0 in the first quarter after Romo's first two interceptions. Brown, who has five interceptions in six games, stepped in front of Bryant and had a 37-yard return to the Dallas 27. That set up Tynes' second field goal, a 37-yarder that made it 6-0. Three plays later, Corey Webster got an interception when Romo tried to go deep to Austin. Webster returned that 37 yards to the Dallas 31, leading to Andre Brown's 1-yard run. Bryant fumbled when he tried to field a punt over his head, though he managed to scoop the ball up off the ground before it was stripped away by Mark Herzlich and recovered by Michael Coe at the Dallas 15. That led to a 26-yard field goal by Tynes. Three plays later, Pierre-Paul got his first career interception for a 23-0 lead. He broke off a block and reached up to grab the ball out of the air, and punctuated his first-ever touchdown by dunking the ball over the crossbar. By that point, things were so bad that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was booed when he came on the large video board during a public service announcement about breast cancer awareness. On another unrelated video during that same timeout, coach Jason Garrett got the same treatment when his image appeared on the screen. It was Jones who on the first day of training camp told fans to come out to Cowboys Stadium to watch Dallas kick the Giants' rear ends. The mode started to change after Felix Jones had a 4-yard TD run and the Cowboys got a 51-yard field goal from Dan Bailey to cut the halftime deficit to 23-10. Dallas scored two touchdowns in the third quarter to go ahead. Romo faked a handoff and rolled right for a 1-yard carry on fourth down, ending the play with an emphatic spike. After the Giants went three-and-out, the Cowboys drove to the 1 again. Romo faked another handoff and started rolling right, when he then shuffled the ball ahead to John Phillips for a 1-yard TD pass that put Dallas up 24-23.
