ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cowboys held the Giants to 12 rushing yards in the first half. But on the Giants' first possession of the second half, Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw gashed the Cowboys all the way down the field. Lawrence Tynes missed a 29-yard field goal attempt, though.

I think the Cowboys are very fortunate to still be in this game -- especially because of the three turnovers. The Giants are 0-of-3 in red zone efficiency, and that's why this is a 20-17 game. I'm not sure why Eli Manning is staring at receivers in the red zone. He's just not getting through his progressions quickly enough.

Injury update: Giants defensive end Justin Tuck has gone to the locker room to have x-rays on his shoulder. His status for the rest of the game is "unknown," according to the Giants.
