Fantastic Four: Cowboys Win Fourth Straight

New York Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey said there was no way the Cowboys would beat his team in New York.

In response, Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens simply said "We'll see."

The Cowboys entered the game having won three in a row, the Giants had lost three in a row. The Cowboys would continue to roll.

In the first quarter, Eli Manning would hit Jeremy Shockey on an 18 yard strike and the Giants took the early 7-0 lead.

After the Cowboys recovered a fumble, Marion Barber would score from one yard out and the game was tied 7-7.

Just before the half, Cowboys new kicker Martin Gramatica, missed his first attempt, but connected on the second. It was a 41 yard field goal to put the Cowboys up 10-7.

The Cowboys and the Giants would both add a couple of field goals, then in the third quarter Marion Barber scored again, this time from six yards out to put Dallas up 20-13.

But, the Giants would tie it again. Eli Manning connected with Plaxico Burress to make it 20-20.

Then with six seconds left on the game clock, Cowboys ball, the new kicker was back out on the field. Gramatica would hit the game winning 46 yard field goal.

Cowboys win their fourth straight in a thriller, 23-20 the final.

"I've got to thank God that he put me in this position," Gramatica said after the game, "and the chance to be on this great team. I've got to thank the guys on this team that welcomed me with open arms since day one. So, I felt right at home."

"Anytime you come up to this place (Giants Stadium) you've got to know it's not going to go real smoothly throughout," said Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. "It's a division game, on the road and sometimes you got to battle through tough times."

Game Notes:

With the win today, the Cowboys increased their lead in the division to two games with an 8-6 record. The Giants remain in second place with a 6-6 record.

Tony Romo had another good game but had a few struggles to bring him back down to earth. Tony was 20-34 for 257 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.

Marion Barber continues to be the go to guy. Another multi-touchdown day, two against the Giants on Sunday.
