Boyd’s 1997 NFL Replay Game 71 – Dallas at NY Giants

Giants pour it on the Cowboys

The New York Football Giants started fast. Dave Brown threw a 49-yd TD bomb to Chris Calloway. With Brown going down with a chest injury, Danny Kannell came in and he immediately hooked up with Calloway for a 17-yd TD pass to give the Giants a 14-0 lead over their arch-rivals, the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys defense controlled the rest of the game, and the Cowboys even took a 15-14 lead early in the 4th quarter when Emmitt Smith plunged in the end zone from a yard out. However, on the final drive, the Giants rallied behind Kannell and he threw a bomb to Calloway from 44 yards out to give the Giants a 22 to 15 lead with 45 seconds left.

Cowboys’ QB Troy Aikman tried to rally the Cowboys, but Giants SS Sam Garnes picked off Aikman and raced 54 yards as the final gun went off giving the Giants the 29-15 victory and pouring salt in the wounds of their arch-rivals. The Giants improved to 3-3, while the Cowboys fall to 3-2 on the season.
