5 things we learned from Giants loss to Cowboys

Jason Pierre-Paul Believes Giants Can Win Out

The New York Giants fell to 3-4 after losing to Dallas 31-21. With their bye week approaching, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is confident they can win their remaining 9 games.
“I think the bye [week] is good,” the Giants defensive end said Monday. “What have we got, nine more games to play? Let’s win all the nine games. I think we can do it.
“We’ve just got to believe.”
In order for the Giants to do this, they’ll have to beat the likes of Indianapolis, Seattle, San Francisco and Dallas in the month of November.

New York Giants must see national confidence level after wild Week 7

Another wild week in the NFL means the playoff picture (as crazy at that sounds) is starting to come into focus. Some teams who started hot are cooling off, while others are clawing their way back in the race. Along the way, the list of contenders and the batch of pretenders continues to be easier to point out.
What franchises fall into each category? This week’s Gut Reactions help provide an answer.
Seven weeks into the 2014 season, here’s where each team stands, including an updated “confidence level” showing how the editors of cover32 feel about every franchise at the moment:

AFC EAST
Buffalo Bills – It certainly wasn’t pretty, but the Bills once again got it done in the waning moments of a game. Kyle Orton is turning into the latest miracle maker in Buffalo, following up his improbable victory in Detroit with an even more amazing comeback win yesterday against Minnesota. Living so close to the edge will eventually burn them, but it sure is fun at the moment for the long-suffering fans in west

Giants Kicker Trolls Peyton After He Breaks Record

Lawrence Tynes took to Twitter to congratulate “Eli’s Brother” after he passed Brett Favre for most career passing touchdowns, but he also trolled Peyton and all Broncos fans in the process.
Congrats to Eli’s brother for breaking the TD record. #elihas2 #peytonhas1 @giants @broncos
— Lawrence Tynes (@lt4kicks) October 20, 2014

@broncos fans why all the hate. Peyton is Eli’s brother. I wasn’t being disrespectful. Just working with a character count. Facts are Facts
— Lawrence Tynes (@lt4kicks) October 20, 2014

The facts are that you don’t get rings for breaking records. You get them for winning championships. I could mention playoff records to
— Lawrence Tynes (@lt4kicks) October 20, 2014

I get Tynes is going to stand by his teammate and that’s great and all, but lets be real here. Peyton Manning is arguably the greatest quarterback t0 ever play the game of football despite his playoff record and despite his brother having two rings to his one. The resume isn’t even close, it

Giants douchejuice Prince Amukamara whipped Cowboys WR Dwayne Harris around by his dreads

If you are a NFL wide receiver, don’t sport dreadlocks. If you are an NFL DB and your match-up has dreads? By all means use them to tackle when possible.

Grading Giants units in loss to Cowboys

The New York Giants are now 3-4 and their playoff hopes took a huge hit after falling 31-21 to the Dallas Cowboys. It’s now time to give grades to their units in the tough defeat.
Offense-B
The Giants offense piled up the yards, but just didn’t get enough points. Eli Manning completed 21 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns without turning it over and wasn’t sacked one.
The rushing game picked up 104 yards and averaged four yards per carry, but the Giants only converted on five-of-13 third downs and didn’t move the ball enough.
More points would have meant a higher grade.

Giants third down defense costly, team falls to Cowboys

The New York Giants are now 3-4 after dropping a 31-21 decision to the Dallas Cowboys. Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. formed a strong combination, but it wasn’t enough, as third downs cost the Giants big time.
MVP-DeMarco Murray
Murray is another frontrunner for the NFL MVP. The league’s top rusher added on 128 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries and had a couple huge first downs in the Cowboys game-sealing drive.
The Cowboys ran all over the Giants and controlled the game, and it all started with Murray.
LVP-Giants defense
The defense just couldn’t do anything right in this one. Tony Romo was only brought down twice, and the Cowboys picked up 423 yards of offense. Prince Amukamara struggled to contain Dez Bryant, who had nine catches for 151 yards.
The Giants just couldn’t contain any of the Cowboys top offensive players, and they couldn’t make a stop when they had to.
X-Factor-Dez Bryant
As I just mentioned, Bryant had nine catches for 151 yards, and picked up many critical first downs. His hug

WATCH: Prince Amukamara pulls Dwayne Harris’ hair

New York Giants defensive back Prince Amukamara did his best Pierre Garcon impersonation in Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. When WR Dwayne Harris shoved him in an attempt to get off his jam and get separation, Amukamara wasn’t happy about it. So he resorted to grabbing and yanking on Harris’ dreadlocks, just like Garcon did…

Giants’ Jameel McClain tells Tony Romo, “I’m not the MIKE”

IF you didn’t notice, prior to the snap NFL quarterbacks typically call out the “MIKE” linebacker in order to help his offensive line figure out their blocking assignments.
Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys called out New York Giants middle linebacker Jameel McClain who lashed back by claiming he’s not the “MIKE.”

Victor Cruz’s teammates plan on doing the salsa for him

This certainly tells you how much New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz means to his teammates.  They told him that when they score a touchdown they plan on doing his salsa in his honor.
Since the injury, Cruz’s teammates have told him they plan on celebrating a touchdown by doing Cruz’s famed salsa dance in the end zone that he did as a tribute to his grandmother. “It’s humbling to say the least that a lot of guys that when they get into the end zone, they’re going to do the salsa for me,” Cruz said. “It’s just shows me what type of impact I’ve had. It just feels good to know those guys are on my side.”
