Cowboys lose game and quarterback
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo broke his left collarbone,
then things really got bad for the Dallas Cowboys.
Eli Manning tied his career best with four touchdown passes,
Brandon Jacobs ran 30 yards for a touchdown and Lawrence Tynes
kicked a career-best 53-yard field goal and the New York Giants
turned a sloppy start into a 41-35 victory over the Cowboys on
New York (5-2) won its fourth straight and is alone atop the
Dallas is 1-5, its worst start since 1989. That was the year
Jerry Jones bought the team, Jimmy Johnson took over as coach and
the Cowboys went 1-15. Everyone knew that team would stink. This
club, however, had Super Bowl hopes.
Any chance of turning this season around ended when Romo was
drilled by blitzing linebacker Michael Boley in the second quarter.
Dallas still pushed ahead 20-7, then gave up 31 unanswered points.
