Lucky

The Giants won a game they didn’t deserve to win tonight.  Not only did they blow a 23-0 lead, they were a fingertip, and I mean a fingertip away from losing. How Dez Bryant got that open with 37-seconds left is a mystery to me, but he made the mistake of trying to brace his fall.  That was the difference between defeat and victory for New York.

But, they ended up winning and now they have command of the NFC East.  They have a 2-1/2 game lead over Dallas and they are now 2-2 in the NFC East.  Dallas still has to play Washington and Philadelphia twice while the Giants have only Washington on the road and Philly at home.  The Giants will need all the help they can get because the second half of the schedule is brutal.  They have this gauntlet to run: Pittsburgh, @Cincinnati, BYE, Green Bay, @Washington, New Orleans, @Atlanta, @Baltimore, Philadelphia.  If they are going to get through it they are going to have to do a lot better than they did tonight.
