Justin Tuck and Antrel Rolle on WFAN: The audio clips of yesterday’s interviews with the following players are available at CBSNewYork.com:
Notes: In seven seasons under Tom Coughlin, the Giants have been 5-2 after seven games six times. The only time they were not 5-2 was 2008, when the Giants were 6-1.
The Giants’ game against the Cowboys was the eighth consecutive Monday night game in which the Giants were the visiting team (including the 2005 game vs. New Orleans that was played in Giants Stadium). The Giants have not been the home team on a Monday night since September 15, 2003, a 35-32 overtime loss to Dallas. The Giants are 20-31-1 on Monday night.
The Giants improved to 17-5 (.773) in games prior to a regular-season bye. They are 5-2 in pre-bye games under Coughlin.
The Giants’ defense limited Dallas to 41 rushing yards. The Cowboys were the fourth consecutive Giants’ opponent to run for less than 65 yards.
The Cowboys were 0-for-10 on third down conversion attempts. Dallas was the second Giants opponent this season to fail to convert a third down. Chicago was 0-for-13 on October 3rd.
Tony Romo is the fifth quarterback this season to be knocked out of a game by the Giants’ defense. The others were Carolina’s Matt Moore, Chicago’s Jay Cutler and Todd Collins, and Detroit’s Shaun Hill.
