Cowboys edge Giants with last second FG

East Rutherford, NJ ( - Tony Romo engineered a late scoring drive culminating in Dan Bailey's 34-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Dallas Cowboys to a 24-21 victory over the New York Giants in a key NFC East clash at a chilly MetLife Stadium.

Romo threw a pair of touchdown passes to Jason Witten earlier in the contest and finished with 250 yards and an interception on a 23-of-38 completion rate. His best work, however, came after taking over at his own 20 with 4:45 left to play and the Giants having scored 15 straight points to forge a 21-21 tie.

Dez Bryant came up with three catches on the deciding series as part of a 9- reception, 102-yard effort, while safety Jeff Heath returned a fumble for a touchdown to help move Dallas (6-5) into a first-place tie with Philadelphia in the NFC East and complete a season sweep of its division rival.

Eli Manning put up two touchdown passes of his own to rally New York (4-7) back from a 21-6 third-quarter deficit, but his team's defense couldn't hold down the stretch and the Giants saw their four-game win streak come to an end.

Andre Brown amassed 127 yards on 21 carries for New York, while Manning totaled 174 yards on 16-of-30 passing.
