Giants Blow 23 Point Lead, But Hang On Against Cowboys

ARLINGTON (October 29, 2012) -- Lawrence Tynes kicked two of his five field goals in the fourth quarter as Eli Manning and the New York Giants remained undefeated at Cowboys Stadium with a 29-24 win Sunday after blowing a 23-point lead.

The Giants overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to win for the 20th time in Manning's career. None were quite like this one.

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 interception thrown by Tony Romo, among six turnovers by Dallas (3-4).

The NFC East-leading Giants didn't score again until Tynes kicked a 43-yard field goal with 10:20 left for a 26-24 lead. He added a 37-yarder after Stevie Brown recovered a fumble.

Dallas celebrated what seemed to be a 37-yard touchdown catch by Dez Bryant with 10 seconds left. But the play was reviewed, showing that Bryant's hand touched out of bounds first.
