Every week, we'll grade the Cowboys on the three phases of the weekend's game.
Tony Romo had one big blemish with a key interception that led to Giants points, but other than that he had one of his better games of the year and was perfect in the second half as the Cowboys eventually pulled away to win their first division game of the season and their sixth straight game. DeMarco Murray was awesome once again, going for 128 yards on 28 carries and putting the game on ice in the closing minutes, and Dez Bryant had a huge game as well. Romo also found another weapon in Gavin Escobar, who caught his second and third touchdowns in two games and is emerging as a primo red zone target.
You could see the Cowboys' defense beginning to show some weakness on Sunday against Eli Manning, who tossed three touchdowns, but they also stepped up when it mattered most as Barry Church forced a key fumble in the fourth quarter to pretty much put the game away for the Cowboys. Church also had a team-high six tackles.
Special teams: A
Dan Bailey only had to kick one field goal, but it was a biggie. With a minute left, Bailey drilled a 49-yarder to give the Cowboys the two-score advantage and win the game.
