NFC East: Brandon Jacos

Who said Jacobs has lost a step?

December, 6, 2009
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It didn't take the Giants long to respond to Roy Williams' second touchdown catch of the game. Eli Manning dropped a pass off to Brandon Jacobs, who raced down the sideline for a 74-yard touchdown. Cowboys linebacker Bradie James couldn't make up any ground on Jacobs and then the running back ran through a Gerald Sensabaugh arm tackle.

The Cowboys have challenged the play, contending that Jacobs stepped out of bounds when he was hit by Sensabaugh. For now, Giants are on top, 20-17.

Update: The call has been upheld and the Giants lead, 21-17.

The Bollinger Factor

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Don't look now, but quarterback Brooks Bollinger has just helped the Cowboys trim the Giants' lead to 28-14. The scoring drive took years away from our lives, but it finally resulted in a T.O. touchdown on a quick slant. Not sure why we haven't seen more of those hot routes since Brad Johnson and Brooks Bollinger have been facing heavy pressure all evening.

But now the Cowboys have a bigger problem. Linebacker DeMarcus Ware just left the field with an undisclosed injury. The injury occurred on Brandon Jacobs punishing run with 11:31 left in the game.

We'll keep our eye on Ware, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. He's been replaced by Anthony Spencer. It's been pretty impressive that the Giants could put up 28 points when Eli Manning wasn't at his best. Plaxico Burress just dropped a touchdown pass that would've put the Giants up, 28-14.
