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 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.

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.

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.
There’s a belief, supposedly supported by statistics, that calling a time out to ice the kicker doesn’t really hurt the kicker, and thus doesn’t help the effort.
