The NFC East has been sloppy all season, so it’s no surprise that the Cowboys and Giants are playing a sloppy game on Sunday.

Just after the Cowboys extended their lead to 15 points thanks in large part to a pair of personal fouls by the Giants defense, the Cowboys closed the gap back to eight when Eli Manning found tight end Brandon Myers for a 27-yard touchdown pass. The play was made possible with a heaping helping of assistance from Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter and safety Jeff Heath.

Myers dove to make the catch for a first down on a fourth-and-three, but neither Cowboy defender thought it wise to touch him and make sure that he was down. Myers, showing a bit more cleverness than his opponents, hopped to his feet and ran into the end zone for a touchdown that made the score 21-13 in the third quarter.

The Cowboys had a promising drive into Giants territory after the Myers score, aided by another personal foul against Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka, but a Cullen Jenkins sack forced a punt with a minute to play in the third quarter.

    A defense that sucks shouldn’t be giving scores away.

    Jerry should talk to those players about that. They are making his coach look bad.

    Did the Giants change the color of their pants?

    Thank you Cowboys for providing humor on a dull and cloudy day.

    Both players (Heath, Carter) are the GMs picks! Doing a great job GM! #fjerryjones

    Yes and no, this year they have ALT white pants for certain games. They wore them for the Raiders game too. Last wore white pants in 1999.
