A 16-13 overtime victory against the Giants upped their record to 4-2 on the year, while the Giants, Redskins and Eagles are all a half-game back at 3-2.
Sunday's victory also marked the first time the Cowboys have won back-to-back
games since last December, and they did against division opponent to boot.
Now, the Cowboys are 2-1 after three home division games, but they believe they
should be 3-0, considering a late collapse against the Redskins cost them a
victory in that game.
The Cowboys have won in recent wees by dominating the ball with a time-of-possession edge of 113:36 to 70:11 in the three contests.
And against the Giants on Sunday, it was 40:46 to 23:01, including overtime.
Said owner Jerry Jones: "I am like everybody else when I look at it in
the morning, I like see Dallas up there rather than two weeks ago when it
was down there. I am not going to put too much on it right now. But I am
glad to have it."
The Cowboys' biggest concern right now is finishing the first half
strong. They play at the Seahawks and at home against the Cardinals before
the bye week Nov. 6.
They also face all three division opponents: the Giants, Redskins and Eagles on the road in the second half of
"I told the players that this is the time where you have to start
stringing some wins together to keep from fighting that every-week battle
later in the season," coach Bill Parcells said. "If you do that, then you
get in position where even if you have a slipup, then you are OK. I think
it's going to be a competitive division. I think the sides are pretty even."
