I've made the comment before, but I truly think that win was a bigger upset than the Super Bowl, and it sounded like some players agreed. Osi: "That was the best team I ever played against."
The game in Dallas was obviously a road game, unlike the Super Bowl, which was a neutral site. Also, our secondary was banged up and lost Ross for a chunk of that game - the team overall got healthier in time for New England. And we just didn't match up as well with the Cowboys' powerful OL.
Dallas - Green Bay - New England. What a ride. I remember being on cloud nine when they beat Tampa Bay!
quarterback than Romo, I refer them to this game. After the Giants strike for a quick TD with first possession, Cowboys own Giants for the first half. With 48 seconds left, Eli ties the game.
Second half, Giants have one scoring opportunity, on the short field after the punt return, and Eli cashes in for the touchdown.
Cowboys have three more possessions, each starting closer to the Giants goal line, and Romo can't get the TD.
It was like that four years later when the Giants beat them twice at the end of the season to get into the playoffs.
