Dak Prescott threw three touchdowns and the Cowboys scored 20 fourth-quarter points in less than five minutes in beating the New York Giants 30-10 to stay in the playoff hunt with three weeks left in the regular season. They weren't unfamiliar names, but it wasn't the same combination as last week, when the Giants lost to the Oakland Raiders. The Giants made their first in-season head coaching change since 1976 when they ousted McAdoo last Monday, with their season in disarray and many fans and former players livid over the clumsy benching of Manning the previous week.

Reese, like McAdoo, was sacked last week. The two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback returned to the starting lineup. "So, I'm happy that he went with that decision and he has the faith in me we can go win this football game with me as the quarterback". "We could win all of them and not get in". So did the Giants.

"To me, the biggest part of this game was the finish", Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. They didn't even get there this week against a below-average Cowboys defense.

Bakayoko satisfied me with his performance". "We have to consider that this is the fourth game we've lost in 16 games", said Conte .

Backup running back Rod Smith also had the best game of his career, running for 47 yards and a touchdown, as well as leading the team in receiving with 5 catches for 113 yards, including an 81 yard score.

The chants of "E-li Mann-ing!" rattled through MetLife Stadium in the second quarter when the quarterback hit Rhett Ellison for a 1-yard touchdown pass to put the Giants ahead 10-3. Manning received a standing ovation when he and the Giants' offense took the field for the first time. He wasn't any worse for the Giants than Manning was, but it was clear the franchise wasn't going to be going in the right direction or make immediate improvements under him. Lee had a late interception on a deflected pass, setting up a 15-yard touchdown run by Smith.
