After the Giants fell behind 7-0 in the third quarter, Barber provided the equalizer, scoring on a 52-yard touchdown run. Then with the score knotted 7-7 in the fourth, Barber's 38-yard run set up quarterback Kurt Warner's go-ahead four-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jeremy Shockey with 12:07 remaining. Barber also added four receptions for 14 yards, helping the Giants to a 35:53-24:07 edge in time of possession.
