Situation: Cowboys lead, 16-7, at the start of the fourth quarter.

Manning in fourth quarter: David Tyree caught a 15-yard pass for a touchdown to cut the deficit to three. Manning also threw a 3-yard touchdown catch to Tiki Barber, which gave the Giants a 21-16 lead that they would cough up later in the quarter. Manning was 7-for-8 for 71 yards and two touchdowns.

Winning drive: Barber’s 3-yard run capped off a six-play, 66-yard drive with 11 seconds left.

Key play: On the first play of the drive from the Giants’ 34, Manning hit Barber for a 23-yard gain. The Cowboys committed a 15-yard penalty on that play to bring the Giants to the Dallas 28-yard line.
