Eli Manning engineered another furious comeback by leading the Giants to two touchdowns in less than three minutes and he finally got a huge helping hand — literally. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul capped off the signature game of his blossoming career by blocking Dan Bailey’s 47-yard field goal attempt with one second remaining to stun the Dallas Cowboys, 37-34, and keep the Giants’ season alive.
“The best thing is we got our season back tonight,” team CEO John Mara said. “It would be nice to have an easy win for a change, but I don’t know if that is in our DNA.”
The Giants (7-6) proved that there is still life and plenty of fight left in them. Big Blue not only halted a four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, the Giants now have a firmer grasp on their playoff fate while at the same time delivering what could potentially be a fatal blow to Dallas’ postseason hopes.
