It's official, we've seen everything at the "Billion Dollar Baby" in Arlington. Three Cowboys turnovers led to 17 Giants points to give them a 20-17 lead at halftime.

Jason Witten's kick of a bad Tony Romo pass led to a Kenny Phillips interception, then a circus catch by Marion Manningham for the touchdown.

Early on, it was the Cowboys defense that kept them in the game.  Two stops led to a pair of Giants field goals.

Then, after a three-and-out on the Cowboys first possession, the Giants marched down the field and scored the first points at the new stadium on a Lawrence Tynes field goal.

The Cowboys responded with a nine-play 62-yard drive, capped off by a Marion Barber touchdown run.

The Giants only touchdown of the half came off  a Romo interception that Bruce Johnson returned for a touchdown.

The Cowboys added another long drive, and pretty pass and catch from Romo to Witten.

Right now the Giants are out smarting the Cowboys, and they'll need to play mistake free football if they want to win this game.
