A -- The receivers are almost unstoppable with
Antonio Bryant, Joey Galloway and Terry Glenn capable of going off on any given Sunday. Bryant and Glenn were the stars against the Giants and
quarterback Quincy Carter showed an ability to get them the ball with a career-high 321 yards passing.
C -- The Cowboys rushed 36 times for 107 yards
against the Giants. That's not good enough every week but they did have enough success to help stay with it and keep the offense balanced against the Giants. And Troy Hambrick found a few holes to be effective in overtime.
C -- The pass rush was nowhere to be found during the Giants' comeback, but the strong performance of the defensive line set the tone early. The Cowboys weren't great but they hung tough against a solid Giants receiver corps. Terence Newman got his first career interception. Safeties Roy Williams and Tony Dixon had big hits to foil receptions.
A -- Defensive tackle Willie Blade's return made a big difference against the run because of his size at 315 pounds. The Cowboys limited the Giants to 53 yards on the ground, including 15 carries for 41 yards for running back Tiki Barber.
A -- Billy Cundiff kicked an NFL record seven field goals one week after seemingly being on the chopping block with a missed field goal and a missed extra point. Zuriel Smith put a charge in the return game in place of Reggie Swinton. His non-play at the end of regulation was perhaps his biggest of the game when Smith decided to let the ball go out of bounds after the Giants' go-ahead field goal with 11 seconds left rather than pick the ball up and try to win the game himself. It gave the Cowboys possession at the 40-yard line and field position to move for the tying field goal.
A -- Bill Parcells downplayed this game but you know it meant a lot to him. It helped boost the Cowboys psyche, which was the reason behind his going gentle on his young team following last week's disappointment. Maybe he does know something about coaching and psychology.
