Beckham Jr. Shines, Cowboys Win On The Road

| by Daniel Yancelson

The Cowboys showed a great deal of resilience on the road with a come-from-behind 31-28 win against their divisional rival New York Giants last night. 

The Cowboys remain the only unbeaten team on the road this season with a 5-0 record.

Sunday night’s game almost ended their road streak a few times. The Cowboys were down 21-10 at one point and also found themselves down 28-24 after the Giants scored with three minutes left in the game.

Tony Romo led the Cowboys to his 23rd come-from-behind win with an eight play, 80-yard touchdown drive in only 61 seconds.  

Romo finished the game with four touchdown passes, completing 18 of 26 pass attempts for 275 yards and no interceptions. He ranks sixth in the league with 22 touchdown passes.

DeMarco Murray finished with 121 yards on 24 carries and no touchdowns. Murray has surpassed the 100 yard mark in 10 of the Cowboys 11 games this season. He has a total of 1,354 yards for the year, which leads every running back in the league by more than 500 yards.

Eli Manning had a good game after throwing five interceptions in their 16-10 loss to the 49ers last Sunday. He completed 29 of 40 passes for 338 yards, three touchdown passes and one interception.

The Cowboys (8-3) are now tied with the Philadelphia Eagles atop the NFC East, and they are set up for a first-place showdown on Thanksgiving Day.

One of Manning’s touchdown throws went to Odell Beckham Jr., who made one of the best catches in NFL history. Check it out for yourself:
