Oops! Tony Romo got loose with a throw (intended for who, I don't know), and Giants cornerback Bruce Johnson returned it 34 yards for a touchdown. Looks like the Giants dropped into zone coverage just before the snap and Romo didn't adjust properly. Patrick Crayton was running a corner route and Roy Williams was running a zoom (short route where he turns inside). I guess Romo was trying to go to Crayton, but the ball floated on him, and Johnson (from the U) had his first NFL touchdown.

Giants up, 13-7. Cowboys very fortunate it's not worse.

Injury update: Giants WR Domenik Hixon left the game with a knee sprain. His return is questionable.
