Cowboys-Giants flexed to NBC
By Tim MacMahon
ARLINGTON, Texas -- The NFC East title will be decided in prime time.
The Cowboys announced that their winner-take-all regular-season finale against the Giants has been flexed to the Sunday night game on NBC.
It will be the Cowboys' sixth prime time appearance of the season. The Giants' come-from-behind win at Cowboys Stadium on Dec. 11 was also a Sunday night game.
The Cowboys have lost their last six Sunday night games. That includes three this season: blowing a 14-point lead to the New York in the fourth quarter of the season opener, the most lopsided loss of Jason Garrett's tenure to the Philadelphia Eagles and blowing a 12-point lead to the Giants in the final six minutes.
