10. Giants beat Cowboys on New Years Day to win NFC East.
The Giants and Cowboys were tied atop the NFC East at 8-7 and a Week 17 matchup on New Year’s Day would decide who went to the playoffs and who’s season would be over. On the Giants second possession, Manning hit Victor Cruz for a 74-yard touchdown pass and the Giants took a 7-0 lead. Ahmad Bradshaw scored twice in the second quarter and took a 21-0 lead into the half.
Tony Romo and the Cowboys cut the Giants lead to 21-14 in the fourth quarter, but the Giants added ten points in the fourth for a 31-14 victory. The Giants ferocious D-line sacked Tony Romo five times, including Justin Tuck’s strip sack of Romo late in the fourth to seal the victory.
The Giants would win the division and beat the Atlanta Falcons 24-2 the following week in the Wild Card round.
