On Sunday, November 23, the New York Giants hosted the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium. It was the Sunday Night Football game: the primetime game of the day. It was a divisional matchup between two teams with one of the biggest rivalries in the league. The Cowboys have the playoffs in their sights, but the Giants and their fans, wanted to get the win to make it harder for Dallas to make it to the postseason.
The first half of the game was all about the Giants. They scored 21 points through two quarters and were up 21-10 at halftime. However, the second half of the game the tables completely turned and it was all about the Cowboys. They scored 14 unanswered points in the third quarter, getting on top 24-21 when the fourth quarter started. It was so close that all fans were on the edge of their seats. The Giants made it to the endzone and scored a touchdown, taking the lead once again 28-24. Unfortunately, that was not enough. Dallas got the ball back with three minutes left in the game, and drove down the field score the go-ahead touchdown, and ultimately winning the game. The Cowboys advanced to 8-3 and the Giants dropped to 3-8.
Final Score: Cowboys – 31, Giants – 28
The highlight of the game, and possibly the entire season, was the most amazing catch by the Giants’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. It’s his rookie season, and he made the catch of the year, if not the greatest catch anyone has ever seen. Watch the play for yourself below.
