Manning Hoping to Continue Arlington Trend

Last season, Eli Manning lost his first career game in Jerry Jones' Arlington fortress.

On Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys will look to hand him his second in a game that heavily favors the Cowboys but doesn't consider Manning's rich history in the NFL's grandest stadium. In fact, it was Manning who came to town to open the stadium in 2009, leading the Giants to a shootout victory and then proceeding to autograph the wall in the visitors locker room.

Since then, Manning's fortunes have continued in Arlington, for the most part.

He's now 4-1 all-time and has two of his five career 400-yard games against the Cowboys in their home stadium with better numbers basically across the board than when he plays Dallas in the Meadowlands. This year, the Cowboys hope to send Manning back to New York a loser for the second straight year.
