having a nice game. so, the cowboys down to the last gasp. >> cris: they're doing this with a three-man rush. if you're dak prescott, it's risky. it's a safety. it's fourth down here. they come with another three-man rush, probably should use the mobility, scramble around a bit, and see if somebody can work their way open down the field. >> al: fourth down. witten comes in for more protection in the backfield. prescott. from the end zone. fires over the middle. and that is at the 20 yard line, dez bryant. who makes the catch. going to the ground. holds on to it. or did he is the question. and it has to be reviewed. and did they get the stoppage
>> referee: the ruling on the field is under review. >> al: they just did get the review called in before the next step. obviously, the cowboys trying to get up there. they had no time-outs. try to avoid the review. you're going to get an incomplete pass here. >> cris: wow. guess who? >> al: jenkins. >> cris: janoris jenkins again. what a night he had. and the crowd, just saw the replay. and they know, it is game over. giants have done it again. >> al: the cowboys are going to go to 11-2. and the -- the giants talking about the wild card situation, b still have a chance. spagnuolo congratulations jenkins on a phenomenal night. >> cris: man, oh, man. >> al: the giants can win the division. they are two back of the
got to even and had the same record. >> referee: after review, the ruling on the field has been changed. it is an incomplete pass. it will be first and goal for the giants at the 3 yard line. set the game clock to 48 seconds. >> al: if the two teams lined up with the same record, the giants have won the tiebreak by virtue of sweeping the season series. >> cris: what a turnaround for this new york giants defense. last year, they couldn't get out of their own way. they sign those three free agents. jason pierre-paul comes back. they draft eli apple. and this was some defensive performance. i know they've had a lot of great defenses in new york with the giants. but this performance tonight was something special. >> al: the giants came into the game with the 17th-ranked defense. ninth in points per game
allowed. one more kneeldown. that will take us to the finish. the giants win on opening day. and they win in week 14. after prescott, 17 of 37. so, under 50%. 165 yards and 2 interceptions tonight, equaling his season total coming into the game. for dez bryant giving up the ball at the end. some reactions. he'll take it. and the cowboys head back, ready to meet the red-hot tampa bay buccaneers on "sunday night

the cowboys this year. and they've done it twice. dallas led 7-0, at the half. all-giants in the second half. they win it, 10-7. three stars of the game. one is a terrific story. undrafted rookie out of notre dame. romeo okwara. he had eight tackles and a sack tonight. starting in place of the injured jason pierre-paul. the other stars of the game, odell beckham, nine receptions for nearly 100 yards. and the giants' only touchdown. and janoris jenkins, who had one of two interceptions for the giants and was on the coverage on the fourth down last gasp pass to dez bryant that was ruled incomplete. as the giants win it, 10-7. and beckham and jenkins are with michele. >> bob, thank you very much. odell, first half, a couple of big drops. you redeem yourself with the big 61-yard touchdown catch. what changed in the second half with you and eli? >> just have to wake up.
up. this is an amazing atmosphere. you can get lost in it sometimes. we know what is on the line. we just weren't doing enough as an offense. honestly, the defense is what held us together. this doesn't go to me. this goes to our defense. so, i make sure they get it. but we do appreciate it. >> you knew how much was on the line. how motivating was it to try to keep this team, the dallas cowboys, from clinching the division on your home turf? >> coach talked about it all week. we talked about them having their box of goods. and the hats, the shirts, everything. and he said it's not going to happen on this field. and sure enough, it didn't happen. we came out and did what we needed to do. so, i'm going to let you speak to this guy right here. this is an incredible player. thankful for the opportunity. >> this guy over here is janoris jenkins.
>> a big performance for you tonight. the defense as a whole. facing all of the weapons that dallas possesses. how were you so effective? >> we had to play on the ball. we played as a defense and played within the scheme. >> and again, the motion of not allowing them to clinch here. you've done it before with these guys. how did you do it again? >> everybody is clicking on all sloinders. and stepping up big when the offense is struggling. let's go, new york. bob? >> michele, thanks. odell beckham was good to get one of the game balls. he caught four passes tonight. here's a look at the nfc playoff picture with a win. the giants prevent the cowboys from clinching the division. if dallas wins two of three, the cowboys win the division and secures the number one seed. seattle can clinch the west with a win on thursday night against the rams.
the giants are in good position for a wild card at minimum. and so, we bring in tony dungy. what do you make of the giants' chances going forward? >> i like where they are. and especially the way the defense played. you heard o'dedell beckham talk about them. they have solidified the wild card spot. that may be bad news for cowboys. that would be dallas' worst nightmare to see the giants come into cowboys stadium and play them in the playoffs. cowboy fans will remember back to 2007 when dallas was the number one seed. the giants beat them at home on their way to the super bowl. >> yep. absolutely. in the afc, now, no team has clinched yet. and the division races in the north, south and west, remain tight. if baltimore is able to win at new england tomorrow night, the ravens would hold the tiebreaker over the steelers to sit in first place in the north.
although the two play on christmas day in pittsburgh. denver has fallen two games back of kansas city and oakland in the west. and they're clinging to a wild card spot. what do you expect from the defending champions down the stretch now? >> i really think it's going to be tough for denver going down the stretch. they are not running the ball well. they had injures to their running backs. they are sitting at eight wins right now. i think it will take ten wins for them to make the playoffs. and they play new england next week, and then they've got kansas city and oakland. i think they're going to have to win two out of three to make it. and i don't see them doing that the way they're running the football right now. i would be surprised if denver makes the playoffs. >> okay, tony. thanks. over to mike florio of profootballtalk.com. mike, two injuries to quarterbacks of teams very much in the playoff hunt. matthew stafford of the lions, having a great year. injured a finger. and ryan tannehill of the dolphins, injured a knee. what's the latest? >> bs
finger injury. said after the game, he will be okay. but look for him to wear a glove on that injured finger moving forward, perhaps for the rest of the season. as that finger heals for ryan tannehill, the news is not so good. a torn acl in his left knee. will be out for the year. matt moore takes over for the dolphins. >> bad news for the dolphin and for tannehill. you can catch mike tomorrow, from 7:00 to 9:00 eastern. followed by the dan patrick show from 9:00 to noon, with lamar jackson as a guest. final score, giants 10, dallas 7. al and cris to wrap it up after this.
