Giants see win appear on review

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant makes an apparent late TD catch but his hand hits out of bounds.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Eli Manning stood on the Giants sideline in disbelief when it looked as if the Cowboys had scored a go-ahead touchdown with 10 seconds left.

What was encouraging is what he didn't see: a replay on the giant videoboard that hangs above the field at Cowboys Stadium, where the Giants still have never lost following a wild 29-24 victory Sunday.

Replay officials overturned receiver Dez Bryant's apparent 37-yard touchdown catch, ruling his hand hit out of bounds by inches, and the Cowboys couldn't get back into the end zone.

"I couldn't quite believe they were able to hit a touchdown in that situation. I kind of kept looking for the replay," Manning said. "You know the game was not going to be over until that clock hit zero."

This was the 20th time Manning rallied the Giants in the fourth quarter to win. And this comeback came after New York blew an early 23-0 lead.

"It speaks about our resiliency. We know how to win these games," receiver Victor Cruz said. "We've been in a bunch of them."

After their sixth win in seven games since an opening home loss to Dallas, the Giants hurriedly cleared out in an effort to get home as quickly as possible with Hurricane Sandy bearing down on the East Coast.

New York is 4-0 in Arlington since Jerry Jones' palace opened in 2009 with a Giants victory.

New York led 23-0 just two minutes into the second quarter when defensive end and former USF standout Jason Pierre-Paul returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown. That was the third of four picks thrown by Tony Romo, and Dallas finished with six turnovers.

But the Giants didn't score again until Lawrence Tynes made a 43-yard field goal with 10:20 left for a 26-24 lead.

Dallas scored the last 10 points of the half, then added two TDs in the third quarter to go ahead.

Dallas got the ball with 44 seconds left and got to the Giants 37 before Bryant's catch between two defenders in the back of the end zone was overturned.

"Just tough when you think you've won the game," Romo said, "it switches at that moment. You put a lot into it, obviously. We put a week's worth (of emotion) in that one game."

    ST. PETERSBURG — It didn't take CF Kevin Kiermaier long to make his presence felt during his return Friday to the Rays lineup. Kiermaier pretended to have Mariners DH Nelson Cruz's first-inning line drive lined up even as the ball went past him to his right and to the wall.
