| No Comments

The New York Giants held on to beat the Dallas Cowboys 29-24 Sunday in Arlington.
Lawrence Tynes starred for New York, converting on all five of his field goal attempts, including two in the fourth quarter, the Associated Press said.
While Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo contributed a career-high 437 passing yards, he also threw four interceptions, accounting for two-thirds of Dallas' turnovers, The Sports Network said.
Dallas scored what appeared to be the game-winning touchdown with just 10 seconds remaining when receiver Dez Bryant caught a pass in the end zone, but the call was overturned when replay revealed Bryant's hand came down out of bounds, ESPN said.
The Giants now hold a two-and-a-half game lead in the NFC East at the halfway point of their season.

Adrian Peterson ran for 153 yards and a touchdown Sunday to help the Minnesota Vikings take the division lead with a 21-14 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Minneapolis.
The Vikings defense held the Cardinals' offense to just two scores and cancelled out one of those in the second quarter when Minnesota safety Harrison Smith returned an interception for a touchdown, reported the Associated Press.
The Vikings needed every yard from Peterson today, as Christian Ponder struggled in the passing game. Ponder threw two interceptions in the game. He has turned the ball over seven times in the last three games, the Pioneer Press said.
Minnesota next faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night.
